Lobular Carcinomas In Situ Display Intra-Lesion Genetic Heterogeneity and Clonal Evolution in the Progression to Invasive Disease
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This study comprises prospectively accrued, microdissected fresh frozen samples of multifocal lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), invasive lobular carcinoma and invasive ductal carcinoma from patients undergoing prophylactic or therapeutic mastectomies after a diagnosis on LCIS diagnosed and managed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). Microdissected samples were subjected to paired-end whole exome sequencing on an Illumina HiSeq 2000. The data generated were used to define the landscape of somatic genetic alterations of LCIS, DCIS, invasive lobular carcinoma and invasive ductal carcinoma, to define clonal relatedness of these lesions and to investigate the clonal shifts in the progression from in situ to invasive breast cancer.
