    ..The localization of the staining was exclusively nuclear. These data suggest that the development and progression of these tumors do not depend on a defect in the hMMR system. ..

    ..These results suggest that patients with early-onset CRC should be screened for hereditary cancer syndrome through clinical and molecular characterizations. ..
