Genetic Modifiers of BRCA1/BRCA2-Related Breast Cancer Risk in BRCA1/BRCA2 Mutation Carriers - CIMBA 5


OBJECTIVES:

- To identify potential genetic modifiers of breast cancer risk by contributing data and
genetic information obtained from women who are BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation carriers enrolled
in clinical trial GOG-0199 to an international consortium of clinical cancer genetics
investigators (CIMBA).

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified by study, country of
residence, ethnicity, and birth cohort. Joint analyses of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers
are further stratified by mutation.

Previously collected DNA samples are analyzed for genetic variants in selected candidate
genes (rs16942 in BRCA1, rs2237060 in RAD50, "SNP3", and rs2241193 in IGFBP5). The single
nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data from this study and selected demographic, clinical, and
epidemiological data obtained from the baseline questionnaire administered in the GOG-0199
study are submitted to the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA-Associated
Cancer (CIMBA) Central Database. The epidemiological and SNP data contributed to the Central
Database are then distributed to the investigators responsible for analysis of a particular
SNP or set of SNPs from a candidate gene or genetic pathway.
