BMC Cancer. 2010;10:420 pubmed publisher..Three haplotypes were associated with altered cancer risk; one conferred protection and two were associated with an increased risk of disease. These observations should be confirmed in other populations. ..

The association of polymorphisms in genes involved in the inflammatory response and CRC onset suggest that there are genetic changes capable of influencing disease risk in older persons. ..

Clin Cancer Res. 2006;12:4832-5 pubmed..Three founder alleles in CHEK2 contribute to early-onset breast cancer in Poland. Breast tumors which arise in carriers of CHEK2 mutations seem to be similar to those of breast cancers in the population at large. ..

J Med Genet. 2009;46:132-5 pubmed publisher..However, the presence of a CHEK2 mutation in women with a BRCA1 mutation may not increase their risk beyond that of the BRCA1 mutation alone. These suggestive findings need to be verified in other studies. ..
