Colorectal cancer remains a major health problem. Few therapies are effective apart from surgery, and survival has increased little in recent years. This is despite the fact that screening by colonoscopy can potentially remove nearly all colorectal tumours before they become malignant. Molecular genetics has identified some inherited mutations (such as at APC and the mismatch repair loci) that predispose to colon cancer and some somatic mutations (such as at APC and p53) that cause sporadic c...Expand abstract
