Supplementary Material

Since our breast cancer samples from Vietnamese patients is limited (n=48), we provided Supplementary Figure 1 which represents the results of the IGF-II rs680 C/T allele count from the 1000 Human Genome Ensemble ( from different ethnic groups.

Supplementary Figure 2 represents unpublished data from our own IGF-II rs680 C/T allele count from paired breast cancer samples from Caucasian American (n=32), South Korean (n=42) and African American (n=36).

Please note that when we compared the allele count for the rs680 SNP in our paired breast sample analysis from Caucasian American, South Korean and African American (Supplementary figure 2) to the 1000 Human Genome Ensemble for the same populations ( it shows that the published percentage allele count is almost identical to ours (Supplementary Figure 1). Thus, the allele count of the IGF-II rs680 in our sample size is comparable to the allele count in the reference populations where the samples range from 181-379. This is important, because it strengthen the significance of our results even though our sample size is limited.
