Incidence of breast cancer and its subtypes in relation to individual and multiple low-penetrance genetic susceptibility loci.
CONTEXT: There is limited evidence on how the risk of breast cancer and its subtypes depend on low-penetrance susceptibility loci, individually or in combination. OBJECTIVE: To analyze breast cancer risk, overall and by tumor subtype, in relation to 14 individual single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) previously linked to the disease, and in relation to a polygenic risk score. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Study of 10,306 women with breast cancer (mean age at diagnosis, 58 years) and 10,...Expand abstract
