Screening for BRCA1 large genomic rearrangements in female Egyptian hereditary breast cancer patients (2013)Approximately 5%-10% of all breast cancers are inherited as the result of germline mutations in the BRCA1 gene. Large genomic rearrangements [LGRs] in BRCA1 have not been well-researched in the Egyptian population. Using multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification, we showed BRCA1 rearrangements in 4/22 cases [18.2%] of familial breast cancer. No influence of having multiple breast cancer cases within the family was observed in patients diagnosed at < or >/= 45 years and having BRCA1-positive LGRs. However, focusing on cases with first- and ...
