Version 1

The PREMM5 has been developed as a pretest to decide whether patients suspected of having Lynch syndrome should be tested for germline mismatch repair gene mutations. In contrast to "PREMM1,2,6" it can be used to predict mutation probabilities in unaffected index patients. "PREMM5" is a logistic regression model. It calculates the risk of having a mutation in the mismatch repair genes MLH1, MSH2/EPCAM, MSH6 and PMS2 (for single genes and overall) based on the personal and familial cancer history of the proband (colorectal, endometrial, and other Lynch syndrome related cancers).
