Clinical features and molecular analysis of a family with multiple colon tumours and reduced plasminogen activator activity.
A family is reported in which a pair of brothers has developed recurrent venous thromboses, which have been shown in one brother (the proband) to result from a reduced level of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) activity. Both brothers have also developed multiple synchronous and metachronous colorectal adenomas. Other pedigree members have developed colon cancers, but not multiple colonic tumours. We have shown that HNPCC and FAP/AAPC are unlikely causes of the family's phenotypes. Previous...Expand abstract
