Scientists discover gene strongly associated with ovarian cancer

(March 29, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Minnesota – Scientists have discovered a new gene that raises risk of ovarian cancer, according to a report published in Nature Communications. For the study, an international group of researchers compared over 16,000 ovarian cancer patients to over 26,000 healthy controls. They found that variations in the HNF1B gene were more overrepresented in one subtype of ovarian cancer and underrepresented in another. They were also able to demonstrate that DNA methylation was associated with different  ovarian cancer subtypes
