- Associations of high-grade glioma with glioma risk alleles and histories of allergy and smokingDaniel H LaChance
Department of Neurology, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA
Am J Epidemiol 174:574-81. 2011..The authors' observations are consistent with a recent report that the inherited glioma risk variants in chromosome regions 9p21.3 and 20q13.3 may modify the inverse association of allergy and glioma...
- A low-frequency variant at 8q24.21 is strongly associated with risk of oligodendroglial tumors and astrocytomas with IDH1 or IDH2 mutationRobert B Jenkins
Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota, USA
Nat Genet 44:1122-5. 2012..16-6.66, P=4.7×10(-12) to 2.2×10(-8)) but not for astrocytomas with wild-type IDH1 and IDH2 (smallest P=0.26). The conserved sequence block that includes rs55705857 is consistently modeled as a microRNA...
- Distinct germ line polymorphisms underlie glioma morphologic heterogeneityRobert B Jenkins
Division of Experimental Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA
Cancer Genet 204:13-8. 2011..77, P = 2.6 × 10(-9)). These observations generate hypotheses concerning the possible mechanisms by which specific SNPs (or alterations in linkage disequilibrium with such SNPs) are associated with glioma development...

Department of Radiation Oncology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN55905, USA
Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 66:1178-86. 2006..The aim of this study was a retrospective assessment of neurotoxicity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) receiving external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) to the brain...
- Natural history of paclitaxel-associated acute pain syndrome: prospective cohort study NCCTG N08C1Charles L Loprinzi
Department of Oncology, Mayo Clinic, 200 First St, SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA
J Clin Oncol 29:1472-8. 2011..The characteristics and natural history of the paclitaxel-acute pain syndrome (P-APS) and paclitaxel's more chronic neuropathy have not been well delineated...
- Genome-wide association study of glioma and meta-analysisPreetha Rajaraman
Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute, Rockville, MD, USA
Hum Genet 131:1877-88. 2012..Our findings suggest that larger studies focusing on novel approaches as well as specific tumor subtypes or subgroups will be required to identify additional common susceptibility loci for glioma risk...
