Comprehensive Cancer Center
The landscape of lynch Ssyndrome creates challenges for medical professionals. When a diagnosis of lynch syndrome is not obvious, difficulties and confusion arise in diagnosing atypical lynch syndrome cases and knowing with certainty when a patient does not have Lynch. Observing prescribed screening and treatment protocol for gremlin MLH1 methylation, Constitution Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD), Somatic Mismatch Repair mutations, and CRC Type X translates to a better quality of life and longer life expectancy for CMMRD patients. Providers who stay abreast of these issues are better prepared to deliver a high standard of care in their clinic.
This webinar will be a source of information for primary care physicians, surgeons, gastroenterologists, genetic counselors, and nurses, and will include education on the following topics:
Biallelic MMR and CMMRD
Germline MLH1 methylation
Somatic MMR mutations
CRC Type X
At the conclusion of this webinar, medical professionals will be able to:
Recognize when a patient has ‘Atypical Lynch.”
Recognize Biallelic MMR and CMMRD, Germline, MLH1 methylation, Somatic MMR mutations, and CRC Type X.
Observe prescribed screening and treatment protocols for the atypical mutations.
