  • BACKGROUND Due to the disproportionate numbers of African American women affected with early onset breast cancer, we sought to investigate mutation frequency of BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2) in a sample of African American women, recruited through a variety of methods. METHODS We conducted a study investigating BRCA1/2 among 51 African American breast cancer patients with a personal or family history suggestive of hereditary predisposition to breast cancer. All individuals underwent genetic… CONTINUE READING
