microsatellite-stable colorectal cancer

Saturday 12 October 2013

In MSS CRC, genetic alterations occurring early in CRC carcinogenesis are remarkably stable during metastatic progression, indicating:
- (i) a very low degree of genetic heterogeneity between primary and multiple secondary sites with respect to CRC driver mutations and
- (ii) that genetic interrogation of archived primary tumor samples appears to be sufficient for the application of cancer precision medicine in the metastatic setting (25786087).
