For those whose treatment is based upon Kras wild status, this article,by Barbara Parsons can be found at discoverymedicine.com from 4/26/13. In a recent post mention was made of Kras wild actually being mutant as one reason certain treatment(s) start to no longer work; this article is worth reading. (don't have direct link)

and an article posted today at internalmedicinenews.com suggests all stage IVs be tested for lynch syndrome("Selective screening missed 13% of Lynch syndrome-associated colorectal cancers")
