TERT Promoter Mutations in Familial and Sporadic Melanoma
Promoter Mutations and Cancer Cancer genome sequencing projects have highlighted the pathogenic role of recurrent mutations within the protein-coding regions of genes. Now, two studies suggest thatExpand

Genome-wide association study identifies five susceptibility loci for glioma
To identify risk variants for glioma, we conducted a meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies by genotyping 550K tagging SNPs in a total of 1,878 cases and 3,670 controls, with validationExpand

Incidence trends and risk factors of carcinoid tumors
Carcinoids are rare indolent neuroendocrine tumors, mainly located in bowel, stomach, and lung. Their etiology is virtually unknown although a family history is a minor cause.

Single nucleotide polymorphisms in breast cancer.
A limited number of genes have been identified that explain heritable risks of breast cancer (BC). We searched for low-penetrant genes in an association study using two populations: 223 FinnishExpand

Evaluation of SNPs in miR‐146a, miR196a2 and miR‐499 as low‐penetrance alleles in German and Italian familial breast cancer cases
Recently, the SNPs rs11614913 in hsa‐mir‐196a2 and rs3746444 in hsa‐mir‐499 were reported to be associated with increased breast cancer risk, and the SNP rs2910164 in hsa‐mir‐146a was shown to haveExpand

Sequence variants at the TERT-CLPTM1L locus associate with many cancer types
The common sequence variants that have recently been associated with cancer risk are particular to a single cancer type or at most two. Following up on our genome-wide scan of basal cell carcinoma,Expand

Polymorphisms in DNA repair and metabolic genes in bladder cancer.
We investigated the association of urinary bladder cancer with genetic polymorphisms in the xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C (XPC), group D (XPD) and group G (XPG), X-ray repairExpand

New common variants affecting susceptibility to basal cell carcinoma
In a follow-up to our previously reported genome-wide association study of cutaneous basal cell carcinoma (BCC), we describe here several new susceptibility variants. SNP rs11170164, encoding a G138EExpand

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Polymorphisms in Relation to Breast Cancer Development and Prognosis
Purpose: Angiogenesis is a necessary step in tumor growth and metastasis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a major mediator of breast cancer angiogenesis. Therefore, we investigated theExpand
