Description:

Microsatellite instability is a genetic pattern observed in cancer that is a surrogate for mismatch repair deficiency. Mismatch repair deficiency can be inherited germline (Lynch syndrome) or somatically acquired in cancer. These have important clinical implications for prevention, screening, and therapeutic treatment of patients who have MSIH+ cancers. This seminar will discuss mismatch repair deficiency, sequencing approaches to assess microsatellite instability, and the clinical significance of finding MSIH status in patients. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Apply the biological principles that underlie the pathogenicity of microsatellite instability. 
  • Explain the emergence of next generation sequencing approaches for the molecular diagnostic testing of microsatellite instability. 
  • Identify the clinical significance of microsatellite instability.
