Dr Zsofia Kinga Stadler - Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA

Dr Stadler presents results at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting that show people whose tumours have high micro satellite instability (MSI-H) are more likely to have the hereditary condition Lynch syndrome.

She describes how inherited mutations in Lynch syndrome-associated genes were found in 16% of people with MSI-H tumors, compared to 1.9% of those with MSI-I tumors and only 0.3% of those with MSS tumors.

For more on these results, watch her interview with ecancer and read our news coverage here.

Slides from this presentation are available here.
