    Multi-syndrome, multi-gene risk modeling for individuals with a family history of cancer with the novel R package PanelPRO

    Gavin Lee et al.
    A comprehensive package for pedigree-based risk modeling, with a highly optimized computational back-end, extends existing models beyond syndrome-specific approaches and incorporates data from panel studies by allowing for an arbitrary number of gene and syndrome associations.

    Mechanism and preclinical prevention of increased breast cancer risk caused by pregnancy

    Svasti Haricharan et al.
    The transcription factor STAT5 mediates the increased breast cancer risk associated with a late age pregnancy, but intermittent anti-STAT5 treatment can lower this risk and thus prevent breast cancer.

    Increased burden of familial-associated early-onset cancer risk among minority Americans compared to non-Latino Whites

    Qianxi Feng et al.
    Familial cancer clustering was significantly higher in US minority populations compared to those of US European origin, suggesting renewed need for a focus on family cancer predisposition in US Latinos, Blacks, and Asian/Pacific Islanders.

    Pervasive duplication of tumor suppressors in Afrotherians during the evolution of large bodies and reduced cancer risk

    Juan M Vazquez, Vincent J Lynch
    Duplication of tumor suppressor genes contributed to the evolution of large, long-lived elephants.

    Identifying prostate cancer and its clinical risk in asymptomatic men using machine learning of high dimensional peripheral blood flow cytometric natural killer cell subset phenotyping data

    Simon P Hood et al.
    Diagnosing the presence and clinical significance of prostate cancer can be achieved using AI-based analysis of peripheral blood natural killer (NK) cell subset profiles.

    Predicting the effect of statins on cancer risk using genetic variants from a Mendelian randomization study in the UK Biobank

    Paul Carter et al.
    Genetic evidence in humans suggests that statins reduce cancer risk via a cholesterol-independent pathway.

    Sense of coherence and risk of breast cancer

    Kejia Hu et al.
    There is little evidence for an association between sense of coherence and risk of breast cancer.

    Effects of lifelong testosterone exposure on health and disease using Mendelian randomization

    Pedrum Mohammadi-Shemirani et al.
    Long-term increased testosterone improved body composition and bone density, but lowered HDL and raised risks of hypertension, androgenic alopecia, prostate cancer, and spinal stenosis in males.

    Cancer risk perception and physician communication behaviors on cervical cancer and colorectal cancer screening

    Diane M Harper et al.
    The physician involving the woman as much as she wants in her health care is significantly associated with up-to-date dual cervical and colorectal cancer screening compared to being up to date in only cervical cancer screening.
