Table 1 Characteristics of families recruited into the TP53 study (n = 83)

From: Comparable frequency of BRCA1, BRCA2 and TP53 germline mutations in a multi-ethnic Asian cohort suggests TP53 screening should be offered together with BRCA1/2 screening to early-onset breast cancer patients

Characteristics No (%)

  1. Table 1 shows the characteristics of 83 BRCA-negative early-onset breast cancer patients analyzed for germline TP53mutations according to their ethnicity, personal and/or family history of breast cancer in first- and second-degree relatives and the presence of LFS-linked cancers (breast cancer, bone and soft tissue sarcoma, brain tumors, adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC)) in the families.
