The Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer (CGA-ICC) was established in 1995 to improve understanding of the basic science of inherited colorectal cancer and the clinical management of affected families. In 2018, the CGA-ICC moved to change their name to the Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Gastrointestinal Cancer (CGA-IGC), to be more inclusive of inherited gastrointestinal cancers as a whole. The CGA-IGC focuses on families with rare forms of inherited colorectal cancer: familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), MUTYH-associated polyposis, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, juvenile polyposis, other hamartomatous polyposis, serrated polyposis syndrome, and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC)/Lynch syndrome.
