AbstractCytogenetic data on 14 breast carcinomas were examined to determine which chromosome arms and bands are preferentially involved in structural chromosome changes. Chromosome arms 17p, 16q, and 1p and band 1p13 were found to be significantly involved. A review of the world literature confirmed 1p as being the most frequently involved arm in structural chromosome changes in breast cancer and 1p13 as being the band most frequently involved in such changes. The two sets of results were pooled, and the analysis of 113 tumours revealed 229 of 304 bands to be involved, with 1p13 affected in 20% of the tumours.
