Genetic association of gastric cancer with miRNA clusters:Results from the EPIC-EURGAST study
An extensive European collaboration work has describe a previously unreported genetic association of gastric cancer with microRNA clusters in chromosomes 7 and X. These microRNAs have been identified as novel genetic susceptibility factors for gastric cancer. Yolanda Espinosa is the fist autor of this study published in International Journal of Cancer.
