Over 15,000 Sessile Serrated Polyps: Slow Progression to Low-Grade and High-Grade Dysplasia in a Large Nationwide Population.

Richard H. Lash and Robert M. Genta, Miraca Life Sciences Research Institute, Irving, TX

Sessile serrated polyps (or adenomas, SSAs) are recognized as precursors to microsatellite unstable adenocarcinomas. We have reported the prevalence of dysplasia and carcinoma arising in SSAs in a recently published article (Lash, Schuler, Genta, J Clin Pathol, 2010) that was accompanied by an editorial highlighting the confusion regarding classification and biology of these polyps.

In our original study we evaluated over 2,100 patients with SSAs. In the present study we have attempted to determine whether our results could be confirmed in the much larger population to which we now have access.

The entire Miraca team has been the most supportive client service team we have ever dealt with. After 18 years as a clinical supervisor with our practice, I have been most impressed with the accessibility and commitment of the entire team to facilitate any and all services available to help grow our practice with the most current tools available. From Amberlyn [Abbott], our sales rep, to Lindsay [Alexander] and Zac [Whaley], our technical support, we have never heard, ‘I don’t know’ or ‘We do not do that.’ They are the most dedicated team to find answers. If they don’t have them, they find them!!
