abstract

  • The results provide compelling evidence that basal-like breast cancer and high-grade serous ovarian cancer share a much more similar aetiology than breast and ovarian cancers more broadly. Further research is needed to clarify the influence of germ-line BRCA1 mutations and other risk factors on these results.
