In the Spotlight

A new, vast international study backs up the theory of PALB2 gene as a clinically significant predisposition to breast cancer in addition to the already known risk genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. The research shows that women with rare PALB2 gene mutation have approximately 35 % risk of getting breast cancer by the age 70. The research is useful especially for genetic counselling: a gene test can be taken into clinical use, and the women carrying the PALB2 mutation can be directed to closer follow up for breast cancer.
