Confirmation of genetic variants associated with lethal prostate cancer in a cohort of men from hereditary prostate cancer families.
 

Author(s): Danielle M Karyadi, Shanshan Zhao, Qianchuan He, Laura McIntosh, Jonathan L Wright, Elaine A Ostrander, Ziding Feng, Janet L Stanford

Journal: Int. J. Cancer. 2015 May;136(9):2166-71.

 

Germline genetic variants have been suggested as prognostic biomarkers for identifying patients at high risk for lethal prostate cancer (PCa). Validation studies have confirmed the association of several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with fatal PCa, but whether these variants ...
