Latest BRCA1 Stories
LANSDALE, Pa., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A guide to BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic testing has been released by Hayes, Inc.
Genome rearrangements in 24 breast cancers.
New findings may help explain why women who carry a mutated BRCA1 gene have greater rates of infertility as well as a greater risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Westchester Medical Center Physician and Fertility Preservation Expert leads study examining the association of breast cancer genes, breast cancer and infertility VALHALLA, N.Y., Dec.
Women with mutations in either their BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes have a dramatically increased risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer.
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYGN) announced today that it has launched a hereditary breast and ovarian cancer Public Awareness Campaign in five Midwest states, including Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio.
A recent study published in the Journal of Cancer Epidemiology has reinforced the correlation between being overweight, smoking and breast cancer. What makes this study unique is how test subjects were not diagnosed for BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, which predispose women to breast cancer.
A new genetic marker associated with ovarian cancer risk was recently discovered by an international research group, led by scientists from the Cancer Research Genetic Epidemiology Unit in the United Kingdom.
Forty percent of women who have a high risk of breast cancer had risk-reducing mastectomies and 45 percent had ovaries removed, British researchers said. These surgeries are widely used by carriers of BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations to reduce the risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Many women at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer are choosing to undergo surgery as a precautionary measure to decrease their cancer risk, according to a report in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
