Big data analysis identifies prognostic RNA markers in a common form of breast cancer
Date:4/29/2013

stic genes are newcomers, and therefore they might represent novel drug targets," says Croce, who is also the John W. Wolfe Chair in Human Cancer Genetics. "They also are novel genes with unknown function and need further study."

He noted that these genes could also be candidates for a blood test for early detection.

Key points related to the study's findings include:

  • The identified RNA signature might predict response to treatment, as well as being prognostic;

  • DNA methylation was used to confirm the association between mRNA expression and overall survival;

  • The signature includes mutations in PIK3CA and its pathway, indicating that the PIK3CA/AKT2/PTEN axis is an important and independent cofactor in prognosis;

  • The prognostic value of the integrated signature was highest in early stage I and II breast cancers, making this a potentially valuable biomarker signature in clinical practice.
