Prevent Breast Cancer seminar at Clarke Nicklin
Research now shows that breast cancer is not random and that women who develop the disease are genetically predisposed. This combined with their lifestyle, environmental and hormonal factors can trigger breast cancer.
Before breast cancer can be PREVENTED, the charity needs to PREDICT which women are genetically predisposed and are more likely to develop the disease in the future unless someone intervenes. By predicting and targeting these high risk women, the main focus can be to prevent them from developing breast cancer.
Current studies Prevent Breast Cancer is funding (or part-funding) into PREDICTION are:
- Predicting the Risk of Cancer at Screening (PROCAS 2)
- Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs 2)
