Since the majority of germline mutations in the TP53 gene seem to occur in LFS or LFL families, and these are rare, research is best conducted in a collaborative setting (Li and Fraumeni, in press). In a report from a meeting at Bethesda in 1993, the following areas were outlined for collaborative study: the correlation (if any) of phenotypes with specific mutation; age specific penetrance; cumulative cancer incidence; gender differences in tumour development in carriers; the effects of DNA… CONTINUE READING
