    ..Larger studies, however, are required to more accurately define the risk of specific individual childhood cancers in Lynch syndrome families. ..

    ..Our finding suggests MUTYH mutation testing in MMR gene mutation carriers is not clinically informative. ..

    ..Further studies are required to investigate the association between 5HTTLPR polymorphism and the comorbidity of major depressive disorder and alcohol dependence as well as gene × environmental interactions. ..

    ..There was no evidence of an association between folic acid supplement intake and CRC risk (P = 0.82). Intake of multivitamin and calcium supplements might be associated with a decreased risk of CRC for MMR gene mutation carriers. ..

    ..Most CRCs in this age group are known to arise in the distal colon and rectum suggesting that lesions other than SSA/P may serve as the precursor for the majority of early-onset CRC. ..
