From: Differences in K-rasand mitochondrial DNA mutations and microsatellite instability between colorectal cancers of Vietnamese and Japanese patients

Genetic alteration Vietnamese CRCs Japanese CRCs p-value
K-ras mutation, present 8/24 (33%) 5/45 (11%) 0.048
MSI-H, present 6/27 (22%) 10/130 (8%) 0.030
mtDNA mutation, present 19/44 (43%) 11/133 (8%) <0.001
  1. CRCs, colorectal cancers; MSI-H, high-frequency microsatellite instability; mtDNA, mitochondrial DNA.
