    • Meta-analysis of 8q24 for seven cancers reveals a locus between NOV and ENPP2 associated with cancer development 

      Brisbin, Abra G; Asmann, Yan W; Song, Honglin; Tsai, Ya-Yu; Aakre, Jeremiah A; Yang, Ping; Jenkins, Robert B et al. (2011-12-05)
      Abstract Background Human chromosomal region 8q24 contains several genes which could be functionally related to cancer, including the proto-oncogene c-MYC. However, the abundance of associations around 128 Mb on chromosome ...
    • PALB2, CHEK2 and ATM rare variants and cancer risk: data from COGS 

      Southey, Melissa C; Goldgar, David; Winqvist, Robert; Pylkäs, Katri; Couch, Fergus; Tischkowitz, Marc Derek; Foulkes, William et al. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2016-09-05)
      Background The rarity of mutations in PALB2, CHEK2 and ATM make it difficult to estimate precisely associated cancer risks. Population-based family studies have provided evidence that at least some of these mutations are ...
    • A risk prediction algorithm for ovarian cancer incorporating BRCA1, BRCA2, common alleles and other familial effects 

      Jervis, Sarah; Song, Honglin; Lee, Andrew John; Dicks, Ed; Harrington, Patricia; Baynes, Caroline; Manchanda, Ranjit et al. (BMJ Publishing, 2015-05-29)
      Background: Although BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations account for only ∼27% of the familial aggregation of ovarian cancer (OvC), no OvC risk prediction model currently exists that considers the effects of BRCA1, BRCA2 and other ...
    • Telomere structure and maintenance gene variants and risk of five cancer types 

      Karami, S; Han, Y; Pande, M; Cheng, I; Rudd, J; Pierce, BL; Nutter, EL et al. (Wiley, 2016-07-26)
      Telomeres cap chromosome ends, protecting them from degradation, double-strand breaks, and end-to-end fusions. Telomeres are maintained by telomerase, a reverse transcriptase encoded by TERT, and an RNA template encoded ...
