A genome-wide association study conducted among women with deleterious BRCA1 mutations has identified a common allele associated with breast cancer risk in BRCA1 carriers and estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer in the general population. This suggests that genetic association studies focused on particular subtypes may provide further insight into complex diseases.
