  • Mendelian Randomization of Circulating Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Colorectal Cancer Risk.

    • BACKGROUND: Results from epidemiologic studies examining polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and colorectal cancer risk are inconsistent. Mendelian randomization may strengthen causal inference from observational studies. Given their shared metabolic pathway, examining the combined effects of aspirin/NSAID use with PUFAs could help elucidate an association between PUFAs and colorectal cancer risk.METHODS: Information was leveraged from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) regarding PUFA-associated SNPs to create weighted genetic scores (wGS) representing genetically predicted circulating blood PUFAs for 11,016 non-Hispanic white colorectal cancer cases and 13,732 controls in the Genetics and Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer Consortium (GECCO). Associations per SD increase in the wGS were estimated using unconditional logistic regression. Interactions between PUFA wGSs and aspirin/NSAID use on colorectal cancer risk were also examined.RESULTS: Modest colorectal cancer risk reductions were observed per SD increase in circulating linoleic acid [ORLA = 0.96; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.93-0.98; P = 5.2 × 10-4] and α-linolenic acid (ORALA = 0.95; 95% CI = 0.92-0.97; P = 5.4 × 10-5), whereas modest increased risks were observed for arachidonic (ORAA = 1.06; 95% CI = 1.03-1.08; P = 3.3 × 10-5), eicosapentaenoic (OREPA = 1.04; 95% CI = 1.01-1.07; P = 2.5 × 10-3), and docosapentaenoic acids (ORDPA = 1.03; 95% CI = 1.01-1.06; P = 1.2 × 10-2). Each of these effects was stronger among aspirin/NSAID nonusers in the stratified analyses.CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that higher circulating shorter-chain PUFAs (i.e., LA and ALA) were associated with reduced colorectal cancer risk, whereas longer-chain PUFAs (i.e., AA, EPA, and DPA) were associated with an increased colorectal cancer risk.IMPACT: The interaction of PUFAs with aspirin/NSAID use indicates a shared colorectal cancer inflammatory pathway. Future research should continue to improve PUFA genetic instruments to elucidate the independent effects of PUFAs on colorectal cancer.

  • Cross-cancer cross-tissue Transcriptome-wide Association Study (TWAS) of 11 cancers identifies 56 novel genes
  • 2020

    • Though heterogeneous, multiple tumor types share hallmark mechanisms. Thus, identifying genes associated with multiple cancer types may shed light on general oncogenic mechanisms and identify genes missed in single‐cancer analyses. TWAS have been successful in testing whether genetically‐predicted tissue‐specific gene expression is associated with cancer risk. Although cross‐cancer genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) analyses have been performed previously, no cross‐cancer TWAS has been conducted to date. Here, we implement a pipeline to perform cross‐cancer, cross‐tissue TWAS analysis. We use newly‐developed multi‐trait TWAS test statistics to integrate the TWAS results for association between 11 separated cancers and predicted gene expression in 43 GTEx tissues, including a “sum” test and a “variance components” test, analogous to fixed‐ and random‐effects meta‐analyses. We then integrated the results across different tissues using the Aggregated Cauchy Association Test (ACAT) combined test.A total of 403 genes were significantly associated with at least one cancer type for at least one tissue; 96 additional genes were identified when combining test results across cancers; and 35 additional genes when further combining test results across tissue. Among these significant genes, 70 were not near previously‐published GWAS index variants. 14 of the 70 novel genes were identified from the single‐cancer single‐tissue test; an additional 43 were identified with the cross‐cancer test; and another 13 were identified when further combined across tissues. The newly identified genes, including RBBP8 and TP53BP , are involved in chromatin structure, tumorigenesis, apoptosis, transcriptional regulation, DNA repair, immune system, oxidative damage and cell‐cycle, proliferation, progression, shape, structure, and migration.
