In 1995, the Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer (CGA) was established to improve understanding of the basic science of inherited colorectal cancer and the clinical management of affected families, with an emphasis on the particular aspects of caring for families living in the Americas. The CGA focuses on families with rare forms of inherited colorectal cancer: familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), MUTYH-associated polyposis, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, juvenile polyposis, other hamartomatous polyposes, serrated polyposis syndrome, and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC)/Lynch syndrome.
