Cancer and Genetics

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University report on a cascade of events that appears to correlate with early cancer recurrence and decreased overall survival.

A new study is suggesting that testing for variants in seven cancer-associated genes followed by risk-reduction management could cost-effectively improve life expectancy for women at risk for hereditary breast cancer.

Circulating tumor DNA blood tests can rapidly identify treatment-targetable tumor mutations in patients diagnosed with non–small-cell lung cancer.

An analysis from Project Genomics Evidence Neoplasia Information Exchange (GENIE) was presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting.

A new international study has identified 12 new genetic variants associated with an increased risk of developing epithelial ovarian cancer.

A new population-based study is suggesting that there are significant racial disparities in gene expression profiling testing in women with breast cancer.

A new study is suggesting that serial genetic changes at the KRAS locus are frequent in cancer and modulate competitive fitness and MEK dependency.
