ABSTRACT: We conducted a case-control exome-wide association study to discover germline variants in coding regions that affect risk for pancreatic cancer, combining data from 5 studies. We analyzed exome and genome sequencing data from 437 patients with pancreatic cancer (cases) and 1922 individuals not known to have cancer (controls). In the primary analysis, BRCA2 had the strongest enrichment for rare inactivating variants (17/437 cases vs 3/1922 controls) (P = 3.27x10

ABSTRACT: SIGNIFICANCE: The genetic basis of disease susceptibility in the majority of patients with familial pancreatic cancer is unknown. We whole genome sequenced 638 patients with familial pancreatic cancer and demonstrate that the genetic underpinning of inherited pancreatic cancer is highly heterogeneous. This has significant implications for the management of patients with familial pancreatic cancer.

ABSTRACT: The genetic basis underlying the majority of hereditary pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PC) is unknown. Since DNA repair genes are widely implicated in gastrointestinal malignancies, including PC, we hypothesized that there are novel DNA repair PC susceptibility genes. As germline DNA repair gene mutations may lead to PC subtypes with selective therapeutic responses, we also hypothesized that there is an overall survival (OS) difference in mutation carriers versus non-carriers. We therefore interrogated the germline exomes of 109 high-risk PC cases for rare protein-truncating variants (PTVs) in 513 putative DNA repair genes. We identified PTVs in 41 novel genes among 36 kindred. Additional genetic evidence for causality was obtained for 17 genes, with FAN1, NEK1 and RHNO1 emerging as the strongest candidates. An OS difference was observed for carriers versus non-carriers of PTVs with early stage (≤IIB) disease. This adverse survival trend in carriers with early stage disease was also observed in an independent series of 130 PC cases. We identified candidate DNA repair PC susceptibility genes and suggest that carriers of a germline PTV in a DNA repair gene with early stage disease have worse survival.

ABSTRACT: BRCA2-associated pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) may be sensitive to agents that target homology-directed DNA repair, such as DNA crosslinking agents (DCLs) and PARP inhibitors (PARPis). Here, we assessed the sensitivities of BRCA2-deficient (Capan-1) and BRCA2-proficient (MIA PaCa-2) PDAC cell lines to a panel of DCLs and PARPis. Compared to MIA PaCa-2, Capan-1 was significantly more sensitive to all tested DCLs and PARPis, with similar increased sensitivities to cisplatin and the PARPi BMN 673 compared to other DCLs and the PARPi veliparib. We provide further support for this observation by showing that shRNA-mediated BRCA2 knockdown in PANC-1, a BRCA2-proficient cell line, induces sensitization to cisplatin and BMN 673 but not to veliparib. These findings were validated in a PDAC murine xenograft model derived from a patient with bi-allelic BRCA2 mutations. We found 64% and 61% tumor growth inhibition of this xenograft with cisplatin and BMN 673 treatments, respectively. Cisplatin and BMN 673 treatments reduced cellular proliferation and induced apoptosis. Our findings support a personalized treatment approach for BRCA2-associated PDAC.
