In Cancer Research, a global consortium in which Leon Massuger and Bart Kiemeney participate describes the identification of dozens of low-penetrance genes at genomic loci that were previously associated with ovarian cancer. In addition, a novel genomic risk locus was found.The consortium used genetic association data of almost 100,000 patients with ovarian cancer and correlated these with RNA sequencing data of more than 6000 cross-tissue samples from 400+ persons. The results are important for the understanding of epithelial ovarian cancer carcinogenesis.
A transcriptome-wide association study among 97,898 women to identify candidate susceptibility genes for epithelial ovarian cancer risk.
