Study Description

While childhood cancer survivors are known to be at increased risk of subsequent neoplasms (SNs), the contribution of germline mutations in cancer predisposition genes to the risk of SN is largely unknown. Whole-genome sequencing (30X) was performed on 3,006 5+ year survivors of childhood cancer (median age, 35.8 [range: 7.1-69.8] years) from the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort. Survivors underwent a comprehensive clinical assessment. Germline mutations in 156 cancer predisposition genes (SJCPG156), including a subset of 60 (SJCPG60) autosomal dominant genes with moderate to high penetrance, were classified for their pathogenicity. Piecewise exponential regression, stratified by radiation exposure, was used to evaluate the relative rate (RR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) of SN occurrence by mutation status. Pathogenic or likely pathogenic mutations in SJCPG156 and SJCPG60 were identified in 11.7% and 5.8% of survivors, respectively. The most frequently mutated SJCPG60 genes included RB1 (n=43), NF1 (n=22), BRCA2 (n=14), BRCA1 (n=12) and TP53 (n=10). Mutations in SJCPG60 were ... (Show More)
