Frank A. Sinicrope, MD, medical oncologist, Departments of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Oncology, Cancer Center, Mayo Clinic, talks about sporadic mismatch repair deficient colonic cancer tumors compared to familial related to germ line mutations in the setting of Lynch syndrome.

Sinicrope says that further studies are currently being done, though sporadic mismatch repair deficient tumors appear to be more dangerous. He says the reasons for this are not clear and researchers are investigating different possible mutations in sporadic mismatch repair deficient tumors for a solution.
