Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., Kras is a gene present in the chromosome, any change in the genetic material
will lead to mutation and result in the production of the tumor... the Drug will prevent
the multiplication and production of the tumor cells.. hence used in the rectal cancer..
Hope I have answered your question..
