NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An international consortium of researchers has linked 12 new loci to ovarian cancer risk.

OncoArray Consortium investigators conducted genetic association studies of epithelial ovarian cancer using more than 25,500 cases and nearly 41,000 controls to home in on six loci associated with serous ovarian cancer, two with mucinous ovarian cancer, and one with endometrioid ovarian cancer. A meta-analysis of high-grade serous ovarian cancer uncovered an additional three susceptibility loci.
