Genetic mutations of appendix cancer identified, may impact treatment: Appendix cancer is currently treated like colon cancer, but significant differences may alter therapy choices

Genetic mutations of appendix cancer identified, may impact treatment: Appendix cancer is currently treated like colon cancer, but significant differences may alter therapy choices

To understand why some patients with appendix cancer respond to standard treatment while others do not, researchers performed genetic profiling on 703 appendiceal tumors -- the largest such study of this disease to date -- to compare mutations present in both cancer types.
