“The Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium previously described six such genetic differences and now the COGS project has found five more.”
For a more complete report on the nearly doubling of the number of genetic variations linked to ovarian cancer by the Collaborative Oncological Gene-environment Study (COGS), read today’s article in ScienceDaily:
Five Genetic Variations Increase Risk of Ovarian Cancer
