Computer program predict the risk of breast and ovarian cancer
Some scientists developed a computer program can predict whether the women are at risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer, and the program "Boadessea" through the study of family history in detail the selection of the women most vulnerable to disease, further scans and treatment. The Professor Dag Easton Said that the Cancer Research Unit and the genetic disease at the University of Cambridge England "is a program Boadessea women''s risk of breast and ovarian cancer, using detailed information on the history of the family with cancer", and he reported that "The program calculates the likelihood that the woman be carrier to a particular genetic mutation and the general possibility of her hit of breast or ovarian cancer", as well as to identify women at risk of high levels of cancer risk will help doctors followed closely or take preventive measures such as surgery or treatment, The doctors have been monitoring that there are changes in tow genes, "B, R, C, A -1" and "P, R, C, A-2" which increasing the risk of hit of cancer and also some genes related to the hit of the disease, "Dr. Easton, who introduced the program in the British Journal of Cancer," Morthan B, R, C,A no / 1 and B-, R, C, A no/ 2 are responsible for less than 20 % of cases of hereditary breast cancer and so the program will be precise to be taking into account the possibility of other genetic mutations", and women who have suffered from mutations in the gene "B, R, C, A / 1" were at risk of breast cancer by between 60 to 85% at some where in their lives, while, the hit of ovarian cancer risk by between 20 to 40%, but the genetic defect in the B, R, C, A / 2, thus causing the exposure of breast cancer by between 40 to 60% and ovarian cancer between 10 to 20%, the computer program depends on the genetic information taken from the 1484 woman with breast cancer and 156 family and signed by the injuries of breast and ovarian cancer, Dr. Easton had a test of the program by comparing the findings of the genetic tests conducted on the women''s program predicted the possibility of significant exposure to cancer, Dr. Easton said, "after the completion of the testing results and Strongly confirmed that no more accurate than the programs developed in the past",
After the program has become much easier in practice, researchers plan to put on the Internet for use by specialists in oncology and genetic diseases, and also the scientists intends to as well as non-genetic factors such as age at menopause, history of breastfeeding and the number of children which women had, these are factors that could be have an impact on the risk of cancer,
Professor Robert Sohamme "from the British of charity Cancer Research society" the program promises to be the most accurate programs available on the computer to identify the women most vulnerable to injury breast and ovarian cancers through the study of genetic changes in the family.
