abstract

  • Although very rare in the population, MSH2*1906G>C is found at an increased frequency in young Jewish patients with colorectal cancer. These results suggest that testing for the MSH2*1906G>C mutation should be included in the evaluation of Ashkenazi Jewish individuals diagnosed with early-onset colon cancer.
