Soft tissue sarcoma and the hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) syndrome: formulation of an hypothesis.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is a genetic disorder caused by mutation in one of the mismatch repair (MMR) genes (MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2) which predisposes to colorectal cancer and other malignances, that not yet include sarcomas. For sustaining that soft tissue ...

Molecular biology and clinical features of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer.
Last Updated: Jul 10, 2012

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease associated with germ-line mutations in mismatch repair genes and microsatellite instability. This article reviews the molecular biology and clinical pathology of HNPCC.

[HNPCC (hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer) or Lynch syndrome: a syndrome related to a failure of DNA repair system].
Last Updated: Feb 02, 2012

The HNPCC syndrome (hereditary non polyposis colon cancer) or Lynch syndrome stands for an autosomic dominant condition leading to the most prevalent hereditary colo-rectal cancers (CCR). MMR (mismatch repair)'s genes are involved in carcinogenesis as they play a role in ADNA mismatch ...

Prevalence and characteristics of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) syndrome in immigrant Asian colorectal cancer patients.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

The prevalence of Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) is 2 to 5% in the Caucasian population. HNPCC is caused by genomic mutations in DNA mismatch repair genes (MMR), namely MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, and EPCAM. A non-hereditary, acquired process of hypermethylation of ...

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer/Lynch syndrome in three dimensions.
Last Updated: Aug 20, 2018

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is defined by family history, and Lynch syndrome (LS) is defined genetically. However, universal tumour testing is now increasingly used to screen for patients with defective mismatch repair. This mixing of the results of family history, ...
