Research into rare disease leads to discovery of six new breast cancer-susceptibility genes

A decade of research into one of the world's least-known diseases has resulted in a major advance against one of the best-known: the discovery of six genes linked to inherited breast cancer. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children's Hospital Boston investigators report in Science on June 13 that an error in any of the half-dozen genes involved in Fanconi anemia – a rare childhood condition – can increase an individual's chances of developing breast cancer.
