Germline rearrangements in families with strong family history of glioma and malignant melanoma, colon, and breast cancer.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Although familial susceptibility to glioma is known, the genetic basis for this susceptibility remains unidentified in the majority of glioma-specific families. An alternative approach to identifying such genes is to examine cancer pedigrees, which include glioma as one of several cancer phenotypes, to determine whether common chromosomal modifications might account for the familial aggregation of glioma and other cancers.
