Radiogenomics Consortium meta-analysis of four genome wide association studies of late toxicity after radiotherapy for prostate cancer
Session type: Parallel sessions
Studies are attempting to identify common genetic variants (single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) that increase a cancer patient's risk of radiotherapy toxicity. To date few positive associations were replicated due to insufficient statistical power. Therefore, a meta-analysis was performed on existing genome wide association studies (GWAS).
