Abstract

Due to ethnic, genetic and environmental factors, the clinical and molecular characteristics of Turkish colorectal cancer (CRC) patients are different from those of Western populations. The aim of this study was to clarify the relevant alterations of gene expression associated with colorectal carcinogenesis in early-onset patients and to identify specific biomarkers that could provide novel therapeutic molecular targets in this population.
