Researchers find more genes linked to triple-negative breast cancer

Mutations in the BARD1, BRCA1 and 2, PALB2 and RAD51D genes appear to increase the risk for triple-negative breast cancer as well as any type of breast cancer among both white and black people, and mutations in the BRIP1 and RAD51C genes are also associated with an elevated risk for triple-negative breast cancer, researchers reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The findings might lead to more robust genetic tests and better prevention methods, study leader Fergus Couch said.
