  • The EWG heard a presentation on an ongoing review by the KSC, on MSI status and response to 5FU chemotherapy in Lynch syndrome patients, to consider drafting a recommendation.

In an effort to further the field of evidence-based review processes, the past and present EWG members have submitted a manuscript to Genetics in Medicine entitled, “The EGAPP Initiative:  Lessons Learned” to inform stakeholders of the possibilities and pitfalls of their efforts. Furthermore, the EWG expects to have three additional new recommendations and one to two recommendation updates in the next year.

The next EGAPP Working Group meeting will be held on August 19-20, 2013 in Atlanta, GA.
