- BRCA1 polymorphisms and breast cancer epidemiology in the Western New York exposures and breast cancer (WEB) studyLuisel J Ricks-Santi
National Human Genome Center at Howard University, Washington, District of Columbia, USA
Genet Epidemiol 37:504-11. 2013..08-4.93). The BRCA1 variants studied may play a role in the etiology of triple negative breast cancer and may interact with environmental factors such as hormone therapy or smoking and increase sporadic breast cancer risk...
- Identification of genetic risk associated with prostate cancer using ancestry informative markersL J Ricks-Santi
Division of Genetics, Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Howard University College of Medicine, Washington, DC 20060, USA
Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis 15:359-64. 2012..Given recent results from admixture mapping and genome-wide association studies for PCa in AA men, it is clear that many risk alleles are enriched in men with West African genetic ancestry...
- p53 Pro72Arg polymorphism and prostate cancer in men of African descentL Ricks-Santi
Howard University Cancer Center, College of Medicine, Washington, DC 20060, USA
Prostate 70:1739-45. 2010..However, associations of this variant with cancer in men of African descent have not been explored. Herein, we tested the hypothesis that rs1042522 was associated with prostate cancer (PCa) risk...
- Association of Rad51 polymorphism with DNA repair in BRCA1 mutation carriers and sporadic breast cancer riskLuisel J Ricks-Santi
Howard University Cancer Center, 2041 Georgia Ave, NW Washington, DC 20060, USA
BMC Cancer 11:278. 2011..Here, we explore the relationships between the MSA and the Rad51 gene, which encodes a DNA repair enzyme that interacts with BRCA1 and BRCA2, in BRCA1 mutation carriers and women with sporadic breast cancer...
