  • Common Breast Cancer Susceptibility Alleles and the Risk of Breast Cancer for BRCA1 and BRCA2 Mutation Carriers : Implications for Risk Prediction
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Cancer Research. - American Association for Cancer Research. - 0008-5472. ; 70:23, s. 9742-9754

    • The known breast cancer susceptibility polymorphisms in FGFR2, TNRC9/TOX3, MAP3K1, LSP1, and 2q35 confer increased risks of breast cancer for BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers. We evaluated the associations of 3 additional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), rs4973768 in SLC4A7/NEK10, rs6504950 in STXBP4/COX11, and rs10941679 at 5p12, and reanalyzed the previous associations using additional carriers in a sample of 12,525 BRCA1 and 7,409 BRCA2 carriers. Additionally, we investigated potential interactions between SNPs and assessed the implications for risk prediction. The minor alleles of rs4973768 and rs10941679 were associated with increased breast cancer risk for BRCA2 carriers (per-allele HR = 1.10, 95% CI: 1.03–1.18, P = 0.006 and HR = 1.09, 95% CI: 1.01–1.19, P = 0.03, respectively). Neither SNP was associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 carriers, and rs6504950 was not associated with breast cancer for either BRCA1 or BRCA2 carriers. Of the 9 polymorphisms investigated, 7 were associated with breast cancer for BRCA2 carriers (FGFR2, TOX3, MAP3K1, LSP1, 2q35, SLC4A7, 5p12, P = 7 × 10−11 − 0.03), but only TOX3 and 2q35 were associated with the risk for BRCA1 carriers (P = 0.0049, 0.03, respectively). All risk-associated polymorphisms appear to interact multiplicatively on breast cancer risk for mutation carriers. Based on the joint genotype distribution of the 7 risk-associated SNPs in BRCA2 mutation carriers, the 5% of BRCA2 carriers at highest risk (i.e., between 95th and 100th percentiles) were predicted to have a probability between 80% and 96% of developing breast cancer by age 80, compared with 42% to 50% for the 5% of carriers at lowest risk. Our findings indicated that these risk differences might be sufficient to influence the clinical management of mutation carriers. Cancer Res; 70(23); 9742–54. ©2010 AACR.

  • A high frequency of germline BRCA1/2 mutations in western Sweden detected with complementary screening techniques
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Familial Cancer. - Springer. - 1389-9600. ; 4:2, s. 89-96
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Dominant inheritance is presumed in 6-10% of breast and ovarian cancers. Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are the most commonly identified causative genes in such families. The frequency of mutation carriers with breast/ovarian cancer depends on the population studied, and display considerable variation that coincides with ethnic and geographical diversity. Mutation analyses were performed in 143 families registered at the Cancer Genetic Counseling Clinic of western Sweden. In a thorough mutation screening procedure, the entire BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes were analyzed using a combination of complementary mutation detection techniques. Mutations in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 were detected in 36% (52 out of 143) of all screened families. All families were clinically evaluated regarding age at diagnosis, type of cancer and number of cancer cases in the family. Among high-risk families, the mutation detection rate was 39% (46 out of 117). The detection rate observed among families with cases of ovarian cancer (42 out of 62, 68%), was substantially higher than in families with only breast cancer (10 out of 81, 12%). Age at ovarian cancer did not seem to have an effect on the detection rate. The analyses revealed 11 frameshift mutations, 4 nonsense mutations and 2 large deletions. Notably, the BRCA1 c.3171ins5 mutation accounted for 34 of 52 (65%) identified mutations. Seven mutations are novel: BRCA1c.409_410del; c.1912T>G; c.2228_2229del; c.3029delA; c.3433delA, a large deletion covering exons 1-3 of BRCA1and one BRCA2 mutation; BRCA2c.6287_6290del. We have shown that the founder mutation BRCA1 c.3171ins5 has a great influence on western Swedish breast/ovarian cancer families along with a high number of mutations unique for the region. In order to achieve a high mutation detection rate we suggest a combination of several detection techniques.

  • The western Swedish BRCA1 founder mutation 3171ins5; a 3.7 cM conserved haplotype of today is a reminiscence of a 1500-year-old mutation.
  • 2001
  • Ingår i: European journal of human genetics : EJHG. - 1018-4813. ; 9:10, s. 787-93
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The most recurrent BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation in Sweden is the BRCA1 mutation 3171ins5. In the western part of Sweden this mutation accounts for as much as 77% of identified mutations in these two genes. Our aim was to analyse in detail the haplotype and founder effects of the 3171ins5 and furthermore attempt to estimate the time of origin of the mutation. In the study we included eighteen apparently unrelated families with hereditary breast and/or ovarian cancer. At least one individual in each family had previously tested positive for the 3171ins5 mutation. Polymorphic microsatellite markers were used for the haplotype analyses. The markers were located within or flanking the BRCA1 gene spanning a region of 17.3 cΜ. We found several different haplotypes both for disease alleles and for the normal alleles. However, a conserved haplotype of 3.7 cΜ was observed in the 3171ins5 carriers spanning over four markers located within or very close to the BRCA1 gene. As this haplotype was not present in any of the normal controls it is highly likely that this is a mutation identical by descent, i.e. a true founder. The results from the haplotype analyses were used to estimate the age of the mutation. Estimations based on the Pexcess and linkage disequilibrium gives a first appearance of the mutation sometime around the 6th century, approximately 50 generations ago.

  • Genome-Wide Association Study in BRCA1 Mutation Carriers Identifies Novel Loci Associated with Breast and Ovarian Cancer Risk
  • 2013

  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BRCA1-associated breast and ovarian cancer risks can be modified by common genetic variants. To identify further cancer risk-modifying loci, we performed a multi-stage GWAS of 11,705 BRCA1 carriers (of whom 5,920 were diagnosed with breast and 1,839 were diagnosed with ovarian cancer), with a further replication in an additional sample of 2,646 BRCA1 carriers. We identified a novel breast cancer risk modifier locus at 1q32 for BRCA1 carriers (rs2290854, P = 2.7×10−8, HR = 1.14, 95% CI: 1.09–1.20). In addition, we identified two novel ovarian cancer risk modifier loci: 17q21.31 (rs17631303, P = 1.4×10−8, HR = 1.27, 95% CI: 1.17–1.38) and 4q32.3 (rs4691139, P = 3.4×10−8, HR = 1.20, 95% CI: 1.17–1.38). The 4q32.3 locus was not associated with ovarian cancer risk in the general population or BRCA2 carriers, suggesting a BRCA1-specific association. The 17q21.31 locus was also associated with ovarian cancer risk in 8,211 BRCA2 carriers (P = 2×10−4). These loci may lead to an improved understanding of the etiology of breast and ovarian tumors in BRCA1 carriers. Based on the joint distribution of the known BRCA1 breast cancer risk-modifying loci, we estimated that the breast cancer lifetime risks for the 5% of BRCA1 carriers at lowest risk are 28%–50% compared to 81%–100% for the 5% at highest risk. Similarly, based on the known ovarian cancer risk-modifying loci, the 5% of BRCA1 carriers at lowest risk have an estimated lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer of 28% or lower, whereas the 5% at highest risk will have a risk of 63% or higher. Such differences in risk may have important implications for risk prediction and clinical management for BRCA1 carriers.

  • The prognostic relevance of FOXA1 and Nestin expression in breast cancer metastases: a retrospective study of 164 cases during a 10-year period (2004-2014)
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Bmc Cancer. - 1471-2407. ; 19
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BackgroundCurrent prognostic markers cannot adequately predict the clinical outcome of breast cancer patients. Therefore, additional biomarkers need to be included in routine immune panels. FOXA1 was a significant predictor of favorable outcome in primary breast cancer, while Nestin expression is preferentially found in triple-negative tumors with increased rate of nodal metastases, and reduced survival. No studies have investigated the prognostic value of FOXA1 and Nestin expression in breast cancer metastases.MethodsBreast cancer metastases (n=164) from various anatomical sites were retrospectively analyzed by immunohistochemistry for FOXA1, Nestin and GATA3 expression. Cox regression analysis assessed the prognostic value of FOXA1 and Nestin expression.ResultsIn breast cancer metastases, FOXA1 expression was associated with Nestin-negativity, GATA3-positivity, ER-positivity, HER2-positivity and non-triple-negative status (P<0.05). In contrast, Nestin expression was associated with FOXA1-negative, GATA3-negative, ER-negative, and triple-negative metastases (P<0.05). Univariate Cox regression analysis showed FOXA1 expression was predictive of overall survival (OS, P=0.00048) and metastasis-free survival (DMFS, P=0.0011), as well as, distant metastasis-free survival in ER-positive patients (P=0.036) and overall survival in ER-negative patients (P=0.024). Multivariate analysis confirmed the significance of FOXA1 for both survival endpoints in metastatic breast cancer patients (OS, P=0.0033; DMFS, P=0.015).ConclusionsIn our study, FOXA1 was expressed mostly in ER-positive breast cancer metastases. Expression of Nestin was related to triple-negative metastases, where brain was the most frequent metastatic site. These findings highlight the clinical utility of FOXA1 and Nestin expression and warrant their inclusion in routine immunohistochemical panels for breast carcinoma.

  • Clustering of individuals with both breast and ovarian cancer--a possible indicator of BRCA founder mutations.
  • 2002
  • Ingår i: Acta oncologica (Stockholm, Sweden). - 0284-186X. ; 41:2, s. 153-7
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In a cohort of 60436 women with a diagnosis of invasive breast carcinoma and known to reside in Sweden in 1960, 321 had a subsequent diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma. Assuming no correlation between the two cancers, one would expect that 191 women would develop ovarian cancer (standardized incidence ratio (SIR) 1.7; 95% confidence interval 1.5-1.9). Women with breast cancer before 40 years of age were at highest risk for developing ovarian cancer (SIR 4.5). Between 40 and 49 years of age, the SIR was 1.9, and at 50 years of age or older, the SIR was 1.3. Most of the excess in ovarian cancer occurred in southern Sweden. The geographic distribution of these cases coincided with the distribution of families with known BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations. These results suggest that genetic factors account for the excess in ovarian cancer that occurs in breast cancer patients and that geographic clustering of patients who have both breast and ovarian cancer may indicate the presence of a BRCA founder mutation.

  • Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer in western Sweden with a special focus on BRCA1 3171ins5 mutation
  • 2004
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Aims: To describe the phenotype and geographic distribution of the western Swedish founder mutation BRCA1 3171ins5, evaluate the reliability of mutation analysis of this mutation on archival material, analyse the haplotype for founder effects in families with BRCA1 3171ins5 mutation, estimate the age of this mutation and evaluate whether the occurrence of both breast and ovarian cancers in the same women may be a marker of a BRCA gene mutation. Materials and methods: The first study was based on 16 families with BRCA1 3171ins5 mutation and the second study was based on 18 families with the same mutation. All affected families were selected from the cancer genetic counselling unit. Subjects for the third and fourth studies were selected from the Swedish Cancer Registry. Study III included a total of 60,436 women with a diagnosis of invasive adenocarcinoma of the breast who were identified in the Swedish Cancer Registry from 1960 to 1997. The women were born between 1920 and 1960 and information regarding their place of residence was available from the 1960 census.All women with both breast and ovarian tumours in western Sweden who had at least one of the diagnoses after 1970 were included in Study IV.Results: Paper I: There were 47 breast cancers in 39 women and 25 women developed ovarian cancer at a median 44 years and 52 years, respectively. Nine women had both breast and ovarian cancer. The penetrance of breast or ovarian cancer by age 70 was estimated to 59-93%. No differences in survival were found between these patients and matched controls. There was complete agreement between results obtained from blood and results from archival tissues. All families with this mutation originated from western Sweden.Paper II: Families with BRCA1 3171ins5 mutations shared a common haplotype, which indicates that BRCA1 3171in5 is a true founder mutation. The best estimate of the age of the mutation was 50 generations or approximately 1500 years.Paper III-IV: The standardized incidence ratio, SIR, for ovarian cancer among breast cancer patients in Sweden was 1.7. As the regions with highest risks seemed to coincide with the distribution of known BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations geographic clustering may indicate the presence of BRCA gene mutations. The founder mutation in the western region could explain the excess of ovarian cancer there compared to the neighbouring regions. The frequency of BRCA gene mutations was estimated to be about 25%among women with both breast and ovarian cancer. It is sufficiently high to offer BRCA mutation screening in this group. The precision of the histopathology diagnosis is too low to be used as an exclusion criterion for mutation screening.

  • Occurrence of both breast and ovarian cancer in a woman is a marker for the BRCA gene mutations: a population-based study from western Sweden.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Familial cancer. - 1389-9600. ; 6:1, s. 35-41
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aim: This study aimed to analyze whether the occurrence of both breast and ovarian cancer in a woman serves as a marker for BRCA gene mutations. Material and methods: This population-based study included 256 women in western Sweden who developed both invasive breast and ovarian tumors between 1958 and 1999. Archival paraffin tissue blocks of their tumors were retrieved for DNA-extraction to analyze the founder mutation, BRCA1 c.3171_3175dup (c.3171ins5), which is most common in this geographic area and four other common Scandinavian BRCA1 gene mutations and one BRCA2 mutation. Together, account these mutations for approximately 75% of the BRCA1/2 gene mutations in the clinical unit. Results: Ninteen percent (95% confidence interval (CI) 14-24%) of the women carried one of the analyzed BRCA1 gene mutations but none of the women were positive for the analyzed BRCA2 mutation. One-third of the women with both tumors before age 60 were mutation carriers. BRCA1 c.3171_3175dup (c.3171ins5) constituted 84% of all identified mutations. Although the majority of breast cancers were invasive ductal and atypical medullary types, a variety of other breast malignancies were seen among mutation carriers. Serous ovarian carcinomas predominated among ovarian tumors. A variety of other ovarian tumors, including three granulosa-theca cell tumors, were also observed among mutation carriers. Conclusions: The occurrence of both breast and ovarian cancer in a woman is associated with a high likelihood of a constitutional BRCA1 mutation. These women and their families might therefore be considered for mutation screening after appropriate genetic counselling.

  • Association of the variants CASP8 D302H and CASP10 V410I with breast and ovarian cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Cancer epidemiology, biomarkers & prevention : a publication of the American Association for Cancer Research, cosponsored by the American Society of Preventive Oncology. - 1538-7755. ; 19:11, s. 2859-68
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: The genes caspase-8 (CASP8) and caspase-10 (CASP10) functionally cooperate and play a key role in the initiation of apoptosis. Suppression of apoptosis is one of the major mechanisms underlying the origin and progression of cancer. Previous case-control studies have indicated that the polymorphisms CASP8 D302H and CASP10 V410I are associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer in the general population. Methods: To evaluate whether the CASP8 D302H (CASP10 V410I) polymorphisms modify breast or ovarian cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers, we analyzed 7,353 (7,227) subjects of white European origin provided by 19 (18) study groups that participate in the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2 (CIMBA). A weighted cohort approach was used to estimate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI). Results: The minor allele of CASP8 D302H was significantly associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer (per-allele HR, 0.85; 95% CI, 0.76-0.97; P-trend = 0.011) and ovarian cancer (per-allele HR, 0.69; 95% CI, 0.53-0.89; P-trend = 0.004) for BRCA1 but not for BRCA2 mutation carriers. The CASP10 V410I polymorphism was not associated with breast or ovarian cancer risk for BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers. Conclusions: CASP8 D302H decreases breast and ovarian cancer risk for BRCA1 mutation carriers but not for BRCA2 mutation carriers. Impact: The combined application of these and other recently identified genetic risk modifiers could in the future allow better individual risk calculation and could aid in the individualized counseling and decision making with respect to preventive options in BRCA1 mutation carriers.

  • Immune gene expression and response to chemotherapy in advanced breast cancer
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - Nature Publishing Group. - 0007-0920. ; 118:4, s. 480-488
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background:Transcriptomic profiles have shown promise as predictors of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer (BC). This study aimed to explore their predictive value in the advanced BC (ABC) setting.Methods:In a Phase 3 trial of first-line chemotherapy in ABC, a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) was obtained at baseline. Intrinsic molecular subtypes and gene modules related to immune response, proliferation, oestrogen receptor (ER) signalling and recurring genetic alterations were analysed for association with objective response to chemotherapy. Gene-set enrichment analysis (GSEA) of responders vs non-responders was performed independently. Lymphocytes were enumerated in FNAB smears and the absolute abundance of immune cell types was calculated using the Microenvironment Cell Populations counter method.Results:Gene expression data were available for 109 patients. Objective response to chemotherapy was statistically significantly associated with an immune module score (odds ratio (OR)=1.62; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.03-2.64; P=0.04). Subgroup analysis showed that this association was restricted to patients with ER-positive or luminal tumours (OR=3.54; 95%, 1.43-10.86; P=0.012 and P for interaction=0.04). Gene-set enrichment analysis confirmed that in these subgroups, immune-related gene sets were enriched in responders.Conclusions:Immune-related transcriptional signatures may predict response to chemotherapy in ER-positive and luminal ABC.
