  • Cover of the Journal of Breast Cancer, December 2017Li D, Mai V, Gerke T, Pinney SM, Yaghjyan L. Interactions of Family History of Breast Cancer with Radiotherapy in Relation to the Risk of Breast Cancer Recurrence. J Breast Cancer. 2017 Dec;20(4):333-339. PMID: 29285037; PMCID: PMC5743992.
  • In another study, Dr. Lusine Yaghjyan at the University of Florida and her student, Danmeng Li, used data from the UC-based Breast Cancer Registry to examine breast cancer  recurrence after radiation therapy. Since a family history of breast cancer may be an indication of a genetic risk variant, the researchers asked whether women who had a family history were more likely to have a recurrence of breast cancer after radiation therapy. In good news for these women, the researchers found that there was no difference in the rate of breast cancer recurrence in the two groups (to be published in Cancer Causes and Control).
