Investigation of Exomic Variants Associated with Overall Survival in Ovarian Cancer



open access (technical)

Background: While numerous susceptibility loci for epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) have been identified, few associations have been reported with overall survival. In the absence of common prognostic genetic markers, we hypothesize that rare coding variants may be associated with overall EOC survival and assessed their contribution in two exome-based genotyping projects of the Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC).
Conclusions: Common variant rs8170 and rare variants in ATG2B may be associated with EOC overall survival, although further study is needed.
Impact: This study represents the first exome-wide association study of EOC survival to include rare variant analyses, and suggests that complementary single variant and gene-level analyses in large studies are needed to identify rare variants that warrant follow-up study.
