This webinar will focus on evolving strategies in hereditary colorectal cancer. Program presentations will highlight novel therapies for risk reduction, additional genes and associated cancer risks as well as discuss the role of polygenic risk scores to identify and stratify colorectal cancer risks.

  1. Evaluate current data and guidelines related to aspirin as chemoprevention in individuals with Lynch and discuss implementation of an aspirin chemoprevention regiment from a clinical perspective.
  2. Summarize findings from an analysis of colon and other cancer risks for monoallelic MUTYH and monoallelic NTHL1 carriers identified by multi-gene panel testing.
  3. Examine current scientific data as it pertains to polygenic risk scores (PRS) and colorectal cancer (CRC)
    • Discuss identification and weighting of single nucleotide variants (SNV)
    • Evaluate additional cancer risk factors including, lifestyle, family history and ancestry challenges
