    • Circulating Cell-Free DNA to Guide Prostate Cancer Treatment with PARP Inhibition. 

      Goodall, J; Mateo, J; Yuan, W; Mossop, H; Porta, N; Miranda, S; Perez-Lopez, R; Dolling, D; Robinson, DR; Sandhu, S; Fowler, G; Ebbs, B; Flohr, P; Seed, G; Rodrigues, DN; Boysen, G; Bertan, C; Atkin, M; Clarke, M; Crespo, M; Figueiredo, I; Riisnaes, R; Sumanasuriya, S; Rescigno, P; Zafeiriou, Z; Sharp, A; Tunariu, N; Bianchini, D; Gillman, A; Lord, CJ; Hall, E; Chinnaiyan, AM; Carreira, S; de Bono, JS; TOPARP-A investigators (2017-09)
      Biomarkers for more precise patient care are needed in metastatic prostate cancer. We have reported a phase II trial (TOPARP-A) of the PARP inhibitor olaparib in metastatic prostate cancer, demonstrating antitumor activity ...
    • Detection of circulating tumour cell clusters in human glioblastoma. 

      Krol, I; Castro-Giner, F; Maurer, M; Gkountela, S; Szczerba, BM; Scherrer, R; Coleman, N; Carreira, S; Bachmann, F; Anderson, S; Engelhardt, M; Lane, H; Evans, TRJ; Plummer, R; Kristeleit, R; Lopez, J; Aceto, N (2018-08)
      Human glioblastoma (GBM) is a highly aggressive, invasive and hypervascularised malignant brain cancer. Individual circulating tumour cells (CTCs) are sporadically found in GBM patients, yet it is unclear whether multicellular ...
    • Gene Copy Number Estimation from Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing of Prostate Cancer Biopsies: Analytic Validation and Clinical Qualification. 

      Seed, G; Yuan, W; Mateo, J; Carreira, S; Bertan, C; Lambros, M; Boysen, G; Ferraldeschi, R; Miranda, S; Figueiredo, I; Riisnaes, R; Crespo, M; Rodrigues, DN; Talevich, E; Robinson, DR; Kunju, LP; Wu, Y-M; Lonigro, R; Sandhu, S; Chinnaiyan, AM; de Bono, JS (2017-10-15)
      Purpose: Precise detection of copy number aberrations (CNA) from tumor biopsies is critically important to the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer. The use of targeted panel next-generation sequencing (NGS) is inexpensive, ...
    • Impact of mutational profiles on response of primary oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancers to oestrogen deprivation. 

      Gellert, P; Segal, CV; Gao, Q; López-Knowles, E; Martin, L-A; Dodson, A; Li, T; Miller, CA; Lu, C; Mardis, ER; Gillman, A; Morden, J; Graf, M; Sidhu, K; Evans, A; Shere, M; Holcombe, C; McIntosh, SA; Bundred, N; Skene, A; Maxwell, W; Robertson, J; Bliss, JM; Smith, I; Dowsett, M; POETIC Trial Management Group and Trialists (2016-11-09)
      Pre-surgical studies allow study of the relationship between mutations and response of oestrogen receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer to aromatase inhibitors (AIs) but have been limited to small biopsies. Here in phase I ...
    • Large-scale Sequencing of Testicular Germ Cell Tumour (TGCT) Cases Excludes Major TGCT Predisposition Gene. 

      Litchfield, K; Loveday, C; Levy, M; Dudakia, D; Rapley, E; Nsengimana, J; Bishop, DT; Reid, A; Huddart, R; Broderick, P; Houlston, RS; Turnbull, C (2018-06)
      Testicular germ cell tumour (TGCT), the most common cancer in young men, has a significant heritable basis that has long raised questions as to the existence of underlying major high-penetrance susceptibility gene(s). To ...
    • Rare disruptive mutations in ciliary function genes contribute to testicular cancer susceptibility. 

      Litchfield, K; Levy, M; Dudakia, D; Proszek, P; Shipley, C; Basten, S; Rapley, E; Bishop, DT; Reid, A; Huddart, R; Broderick, P; Castro, DGD; O'Connor, S; Giles, RH; Houlston, RS; Turnbull, C (2016-12-20)
      Testicular germ cell tumour (TGCT) is the most common cancer in young men. Here we sought to identify risk factors for TGCT by performing whole-exome sequencing on 328 TGCT cases from 153 families, 634 sporadic TGCT cases ...
    • Rare germline variants in DNA repair genes and the angiogenesis pathway predispose prostate cancer patients to develop metastatic disease. 

      Mijuskovic, M; Saunders, EJ; Leongamornlert, DA; Wakerell, S; Whitmore, I; Dadaev, T; Cieza-Borrella, C; Govindasami, K; Brook, MN; Haiman, CA; Conti, DV; Eeles, RA; Kote-Jarai, Z (2018-07)
      BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer (PrCa) demonstrates a heterogeneous clinical presentation ranging from largely indolent to lethal. We sought to identify a signature of rare inherited variants that distinguishes between these ...
