AIMS The contribution of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variations to clinical radiosensitivity is largely unknown. In the present study, we evaluated the association between mtDNA haplogroups and the risk of radiation-induced subcutaneous fibrosis after postoperative radiotherapy in breast cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subcutaneous fibrosis was… CONTINUE READING
