Genome-wide association study identifies novel breast cancer susceptibility loci
To identify further susceptibility alleles, a two-stage genome-wide association study in 4,398 breast cancer cases and 4,316 controls was conducted, followed by a third stage in which 30 single nucleotide polymorphisms were tested for confirmation. Expand
Subtyping of Breast Cancer by Immunohistochemistry to Investigate a Relationship between Subtype and Short and Long Term Survival: A Collaborative Analysis of Data for 10,159 Cases from 12 Studies
Paul Pharoah and colleagues evaluate the prognostic significance of immunohistochemical subtype classification in more than 10,000 breast cancer cases with early disease, and examine the influence ofExpand
Multiple newly identified loci associated with prostate cancer susceptibility
A genome-wide association study using blood DNA samples from 1,854 individuals with clinically detected prostate cancer diagnosed at ≤60 years or with a family history of disease, and 1,894 population-screened controls with a low prostate-specific antigen (PSA) concentration (<0.5 ng/ml) identified seven loci associated with prostate cancer on chromosomes 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 19 and X.

Large-scale genotyping identifies 41 new loci associated with breast cancer risk
A meta-analysis of 9 genome-wide association studies, including 10,052 breast cancer cases and 12,575 controls of European ancestry, and identified 29,807 SNPs for further genotyping suggests that more than 1,000 additional loci are involved in breast cancer susceptibility. Expand
Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci
A genome-wide association study of breast cancer in 122,977 cases and 105,974 controls of European ancestry and 14,068 cases and 13,104 controls of East Asian ancestry finds that heritability of Breast cancer due to all single-nucleotide polymorphisms in regulatory features was 2–5-fold enriched relative to the genome- wide average. Expand
Inherited mutations in 17 breast cancer susceptibility genes among a large triple-negative breast cancer cohort unselected for family history of breast cancer.
Mutation prevalence estimates suggest that patients with TNBC, regardless of age at diagnosis or family history of cancer, should be considered for germline genetic testing of BRCA1 and BRCa2. Expand
A common coding variant in CASP8 is associated with breast cancer risk
It is demonstrated that common breast cancer susceptibility alleles with small effects on risk can be identified, given sufficiently powerful studies, as well as the need for further studies to confirm putative genetic associations with breast cancer. Expand
Associations of breast cancer risk factors with tumor subtypes: a pooled analysis from the Breast Cancer Association Consortium studies.
It is shown that reproductive factors and BMI are most clearly associated with hormone receptor-positive tumors and suggest that triple-negative or CBP tumors may have distinct etiology. Expand
Newly discovered breast cancer susceptibility loci on 3p24 and 17q23.2
Strong evidence is found for additional susceptibility loci on 3p and 17q and potential causative genes include SLC4A7 and NEK10 on3p and COX11 on 17q. Expand
Genome-wide association studies identify four ER negative–specific breast cancer risk loci
SNPs at four loci were associated with ER-negative but not ER-positive breast cancer (P > 0.05), providing further evidence for distinct etiological pathways associated with invasive ER- positive and ER- negative breast cancers. Expand
