In genome-wide association studies (GWASs) of colorectal cancer, we have identified two genomic regions in which pairs of tagging-single nucleotide polymorphisms (tagSNPs) are associated with disease; these comprise chromosomes 1q41 (rs6691170, rs6687758) and 12q13.13 (rs7163702, rs11169552). We investigated these regions further, aiming to determine(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the overall incidence of molar pregnancies and that of complete and partial molar pregnancies across the reproductive age range for England and Wales for the period 2000-2009. STUDY DESIGN The cases of all patients with molar pregnancies registered with the UK Trophoblast disease service from England and Wales were identified. The(More)
Papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) is an important subtype of kidney cancer with a problematic pathological classification and highly variable clinical behaviour. Here we sequence the genomes or exomes of 31 pRCCs, and in four tumours, multi-region sequencing is undertaken. We identify BAP1, SETD2, ARID2 and Nrf2 pathway genes (KEAP1, NHE2L2 and CUL3) as(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of early pregnancy (< 12 months following chemotherapy) on a recent cohort of women treated with modern therapies for gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN). STUDY DESIGN The Charing Cross GTN database was screened between 1998-2012 to identify 1,204 patients treated with either single-agent (61.9%) or multiagent(More)
