    • Fine-Mapping of the 1p11.2 Breast Cancer Susceptibility Locus 

      Horne, Hisani N; Chung, Charles C; Zhang, Han; Yu, Kai; Prokunina-Olsson, Ludmila; Michailidou, Kyriaki; Bolla, Manjeet K et al. (Public Library of Science, 2016-08-24)
      The Cancer Genetic Markers of Susceptibility genome-wide association study (GWAS) originally identified a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs11249433 at 1p11.2 associated with breast cancer risk. To fine-map this locus, ...
    • Identification of six new susceptibility loci for invasive epithelial ovarian cancer 

      Kuchenbaecker, Karoline Bernhardine; Ramus, Susan J; Tyrer, Jonathan; Lee, Andrew; Shen, Howard C; Beesley, Jonathan; Lawrenson, Kate et al. (2015-01-12)
      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 12 epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) susceptibility alleles. The pattern of association at these loci is consistent in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers who are at high ...
    • Implications of polygenic risk-stratified screening for prostate cancer on overdiagnosis 

      Pashayan, Nora; Duffy, Stephen W; Neal, David E; Hamdy, Freddie C; Donovan, Jenny L; Martin, Richard M; Harrington, Patricia et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-01-08)
      Purpose: This study aimed to quantify the probability of overdiagnosis of prostate cancer by polygenic risk. Methods: We calculated the polygenic risk score based on 66 known prostate cancer susceptibility variants for ...
