Sciences.  Oncology.  A patent by scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences may turn into a breakthrough in preventing breast cancer in Poland

This may be a breakthrough in reducing the incidence of breast cancer. Scientists from the Institute of Human Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań have received a patent for detecting a genetic predisposition to malignant breast cancer, reports TVP3 Poznań.

Up to 10% of breast cancer cases are associated with strong genetic predispositions. There are a lot of these diseases and we need to devote more time to encouraging women to get tested. I think it is also important to raise awareness of breast cancer treatment (…). Many women fear treatmentBecause they think that it will be associated with breast loss, and this is not the case – says TVP3 Poznań Dr. Janusz Wasiwicz, Head of the Department of Surgical Oncology for Breast Diseases at the Greater Poland Oncology Center.

Over the past 20 years, the number of cases of breast cancer has increased by almost 100%. This is why the diagnosis is so important. in its early detection cancer It will help scientists from the Institute of Human Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań, who have received a patent for the discovery of a genetic predisposition to detect malignant breast cancer.

Detection of changes in genes

– This is a method for detecting changes in the plp2 rql genes responsible for an increased susceptibility to breast cancer, especially among Polish patients (…). It has been described in the scientific literature that these specific mutations, which we included in our genetic test, occur in the Polish population and increase the risk of breast cancer, – explains Emilia Lis-Tana from the Institute of Human Genetics PAS in Poznań.

changes in these genes It causes a very aggressive form of breast cancer with a poor prognosis and starts at a very young age. Prof. Dr. confirms. Andrzej Pławski of the Institute of Human Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Scientists say that future generations will benefit from these achievements. The patent will benefit many people and organizations. – HospitalsPatients who already have a family history of breast cancer (…). I also think that it can be very important for future generations, because if we had cancer in our mothers, in our grandmothers, it is already possible to test family members – Emilia Liss-Tana points out.

Little Doctors – To detect cancer at an early stage, a woman should examine her breasts once a monthAnd when he’s 50, he’s systematically doing mammograms and Pap smears.
