Recent studies have demonstrated the presence of microsatellite instability (MSI) in tumors from patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer and in a subset of patients with sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC). In sporadic CRC, three tumor phenotypes have been defined: microsatellite stable (MSS), low-frequency MSI, and high-frequency MSI (MSI-H).(More)
Two microsatellite instability (MSI) phenotypes have been described in colorectal cancer (CRC): MSI-H (instability at >30% of the loci examined) and MSI-L (MSI at 1-30% of the loci examined). The MSI-H phenotype, observed in both hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer-associated CRC and approximately 15% of sporadic CRC, generally results from mutational or(More)
