Hereditary prostate cancer - Primetime for genetic testing?
Last Updated: Dec 17, 2019

Prostate cancer (PCa) remains the most common cancer in men. The proportion of all PCa attributable to high-risk hereditary factors has been estimated to 5-15%. Recent landmark discoveries in PCa genetics led to the identification of germline mutations/alterations (eg. BRCA1, BRCA2, ...

[Hereditary colon cancer in Lynch syndrome/HNPCC syndrome in Germany].
Last Updated: Jan 08, 2020

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch/HNPCC syndrome) is based on a germline mutation inducing increased occurrence of colorectal cancer and extracolonic carcinomas in young age. The German HNPCC consortium aims to increase awareness for detection of hereditary colon cancer ...

Screening and surgical prophylaxis for hereditary cancer syndromes with high risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer.
Last Updated: Jan 08, 2020

In the era of advanced cancer genomics, our recognition of hereditary cancer mutations continues to increase. Two of these conditions, which carry an increased risk of female cancers including endometrial, ovarian, breast, are hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome and Lynch ...

Feasibility of Identifying Patients at High Risk of Hereditary Gastric Cancer Based on Clinicopathological Variables.
Last Updated: Sep 26, 2019

Multiplex gene panel tests using next-generation sequencing (NGS) are clinically available for gastric cancer (GC). The NGS tests can reveal unexpected pathogenic variants to be associated with hereditary diseases, i.e., secondary genetic findings. We investigated whether GC patients ...

Contribution of Massive Parallel Sequencing to Diagnosis of Hereditary Ovarian Cancer in the Czech Republic.
Last Updated: Jan 07, 2020

Ovarian cancer is a disease with high mortality. Approximately 1,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the Czech Republic annually. Women harboring a mutation in cancer-predisposing genes face an increased risk of tumor development. Mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, and Lynch ...

Germline CHEK2 Gene Mutations in Hereditary Breast Cancer Predisposition - Mutation Types and their Biological and Clinical Relevance.
Last Updated: Jan 07, 2020

Hereditary mutations in the CHEK2 gene (which encodes CHK2 kinase) contribute to a moderately increased risk of breast cancer (BC) and other cancers. Large variations in the frequency of CHEK2 mutations and the occurrence of variants of unknown clinical significance (VUS) complicate ...
