    • 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 ...
    • Polymorphisms in a Putative Enhancer at the 10q21.2 Breast Cancer Risk Locus Regulate NRBF2 Expression 

      Darabi, Hatef; McCue, Karen; Beesley, Jonathan; Michailidou, Kyriaki; Nord, Silje; Kar, Siddhartha; Humphreys, Keith et al. (Elsevier, 2015-06-11)
      Genome-wide association studies have identified SNPs near ZNF365 at 10q21.2 that are associated with both breast cancer risk and mammographic density. To identify the most likely causal SNPs, we fine mapped the association ...
    • Robust Tests for Additive Gene-Environment Interaction in Case-Control Studies Using Gene-Environment Independence 

      Liu, Gang; Mukherjee, Bhramar; Lee, Seunggeun; Lee, Alice W; Wu, Anna H; Bandera, Elisa V; Jensen, Allan et al. (Oxford University Press, 2018-02-01)
      There have been recent proposals advocating the use of additive gene-environment interaction instead of the widely used multiplicative scale, as a more relevant public health measure. Using gene-environment independence ...
