Genetic Testing for Breast Cancer - Mayo Clinic
 
02:43
It could be your mom, sister, aunt or best friend. One out of 8 women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. A small subset of the women who get diagnosed have inherited an abnormal copy of a gene that runs in families and can greatly increase their risk of certain cancers. One question these women and their families face is, "Should I get tested to find out if I have a genetic risk?" The answer is always a very personal one.

Invasive Breast Cancer: We Teach You The Essentials
 
13:48
We teach you how invasive breast cancer can threaten your life and guide you to the key information you need to know to get the best possible treatment. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Specialists: 1. What is invasive breast cancer? 2. What type of breast cancer do I have? 3. What is the chance I will die of my breast cancer? 4. What are my receptor results? 5. May I have a copy of my pathology report? 6. Do I qualify for genetic testing? 7. What is invasive breast cancer? Invasive breast cancer is defined by breast cells that grow abnormally fast and have developed the ability to spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. It can take years for breast cells to slowly develop the genetic changes (mutations) to change from a normal cell to an invasive cancer cell. But once they do, some spread more rapidly and others grow very slowly and may not spread at all beyond the breast. Invasive breast cancer can threaten your life. “Non-invasive” breast cancer are cells that also grow abnormally fast, but cannot yet spread beyond the breast to threaten someone’s life. Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) is an example of non-invasive breast cancer and is generally categorized under “breast cancer” by most organizations. It is covered in our “Non-invasive DCIS” lesson and is more of a “pre-cancerous” condition. Important facts if you have an Invasive Breast Cancer: Treatments can cure 90% of all women with breast cancer The majority of all patients are diagnosed at an early stage Surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation are treatment options You have time before choosing a treatment pathway You may qualify for genetic testing Types of invasive breast cancer: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma is the most common (70%) type of invasive breast cancer. It is called “ductal” because the cancer cells originate from the cells lining the milk ducts. There are many other factors beyond “type” of cancer that are important. Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma occurs in less than 20% of patients. It is called “lobular” because the cells originate from the “lobules” of the milk ducts. Lobular cancers are no worse or better than invasive ductal cancers from a survival perspective. There are some unique features of lobular cancers that can affect diagnosis and treatment. Ask you physician how an invasive lobular carcinoma is different from an invasive ductal carcinoma. Other types: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (5%) is a very aggressive cancer. Colloid and Mucinous (3%) are considered less aggressive breast cancers and carry a lower risk to one’s health. There are other less common types of invasive breast cancer that we have not covered. What is the chance I will die of my cancer? Most women just diagnosed with breast cancer have no idea how much of a risk to their life their unique situation poses. Any invasive breast cancer does impart some level of risk to your life. However, this risk is usually less than you would assume. Why are “receptors” important? Receptors are tiny proteins on the surface of the cells that act like “light switches” that can turn on and off cancer cell growth. The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and HER2 receptor results are incredibly important for you to know and understand. Take our lesson on “My Tumor Receptors” to learn the essentials. How do you treat invasive breast cancer? The most common first treatment for early stage invasive breast cancer is surgery, possibly followed by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and then hormonal therapy. Breast cancer treatment is incredibly complex and there can be many different approaches to the same type of breast cancer. There are some situations that are better treated by “neoadjuvant chemotherapy” as a first treatment rather than surgery. The Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to help you to make the best treatment decisions with your breast specialists in your community. You may qualify for genetic testing Invasive breast cancer is known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Most breast cancers are not the result of the BRCA mutation. In fact, it is estimated that the BRCA and similar genetic mutations cause only 10 to 15% of all breast cancers. It is important to ask your physicians if you meet the guidelines for genetic counseling and testing. Take our “BRCA Genetic Testing” lesson to learn more.

**This content is intended for U.S. and Canada audiences only.** Jill and her husband took the 23andMe test to learn more about their traits and ancestry, but ended up finding out much more. With these genetic insights, Jill was able to be proactive about her health. Learn more at https://www.23andme.com/brca/. Disclaimer: The 23andMe PGS test uses qualitative genotyping to detect select clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks, including the 23andMe PGS Genetic Health Risk Report for BRCA1/BRCA2 (Selected Variants). Your ethnicity may affect the relevance of each report and how your genetic health risk results are interpreted. The test is not intended to diagnose any disease and does not describe a person's overall risk of developing any type of cancer. It is not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication, how much of a medication you should take, or determine any treatments. Warnings & Limitations: The 23andMe PGS Genetic Health RIsk Report for BRCA1/BRCA2 (Selected Variants) is indicated for reporting of the 185delAG and 5382insC variants in the BRCA1 gene and the 6174delT variant in the BRCA2 gene. The report describes if a woman is at increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, and if a man is at increased risk of developing breast cancer or may be at increased risk of developing prostate cancer. The three variants included in this report are most common in people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent and do not represent the majority of BRCA1/BRCA2 variants in the general population. This report does not include variants in other genes linked to hereditary cancers and the absence of variants included in this report does not rule out the presence of other genetic variants that may impact cancer risk. The PGS test is not a substitute for visits to a healthcare professional for recommended screenings or appropriate follow-up. Results should be confirmed in a clinical setting before taking any medical action.

Hormone Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer
 
02:30
Breastlink founder Dr. Link, author of “The Breast Cancer Survival Manual,” explains why drugs like Tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors reduce a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. When researches began sequencing cancer genes in 2003 and 2004, they discovered that cancer wasn’t a homogenous disease. There were variations and they eventually divided cancer into subtypes: triple negative (15% of breast cancer), HER2 amplified type (12-15% of breast cancer), and hormone receptor positive, also known as the luminal cancer (over 70% of breast cancer). Luminal cancer cells have estrogen and progesterone receptors on their surface and have to receive these hormones in order to survive. To prevent these tumors from getting estrogen, doctors prescribe Tamoxifen, which blocks the estrogen receptors and kills the cell. After a woman goes into menopause and her ovaries stop producing estrogen, the tumor can still receive estrogen from the adrenal gland. Aromatase inhibitors are used to block adrenal estrogen.

Will I need Chemotherapy for My Breast Cancer?
 
14:48
We teach you how your tumor receptors, lymph nodes, genomic assays, and breast cancer stage indicates if you would benefit from chemotherapy. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ____________________________________ Questions for your Medical Oncologist and Breast Surgeon: 1. Would I benefit from chemotherapy? 2. What factors suggest I will benefit from chemotherapy? 3. What is the risk to my life if I do not undergo chemotherapy? 4. What are the advantages of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” before surgery? 5. Would a “Genomic Assay” help determine if I need chemotherapy? 6. What is chemotherapy? Chemotherapy is the use of certain medications to treat cancer systemically, meaning throughout the whole body. If needed, chemotherapy is usually given after surgery for invasive breast cancer. It is a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (usually pills). Only a minority of breast cancer patients will ever need it. These complex decisions are ones you will make with your medical oncologist. You will make better treatment choices when you are informed about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy before meeting with your medical oncologist. General indications for chemotherapy We outline below some of the more common indications for needing chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy also involves being healthy enough to tolerate the treatment. Deciding who needs chemotherapy and what type of chemotherapy to administer is one of the most difficult decisions made in medicine. Your medical oncologist will guide you. Do my “receptors” suggest I need chemotherapy? Once a breast biopsy is found to be cancerous, the pathologists will automatically run more tests on the same tissue to determine what “receptors” are expressed. Your receptor pattern is a key piece of information that comes early in your breast cancer journey. In about 30% of patients with an invasive breast cancer, the receptor pattern alone can strongly suggest that chemotherapy will be needed regardless of what is found at surgery. The key points regarding receptors are outlined below. Estrogen Receptor Negative (ER -) tumors (20%) do not respond to anti-estrogen oral medications that are essential in treating estrogen receptor positive (ER +) tumors. Quite simply, patients with ER negative tumors will benefit from chemotherapy if they are healthy enough to tolerate it. ER negative tumors are more aggressive cancers, but respond more favorably to chemotherapy than ER positive breast cancers. HER2 Receptor Positive (HER2+) tumors (20%) are very responsive to chemotherapy when paired with new breakthrough drugs that target these tumors, such as Herceptin and Perjeta. The same holds true even if a HER2-positive tumor is also Estrogen Receptor positive (ER+). HER2+ tumors are more aggressive cancers, but we now can treat them more effectively with chemotherapy and new drugs that are “targeted” to destroy HER2-positive cancers. “Triple Negative” (ER-)(PR-)(HER2-) tumors are fast growing tumors that are usually treated with a specific chemotherapy regimen. These tumors are not responsive to hormonal therapy at all, but may be sensitive to chemotherapy. What if cancer is detected in the lymph nodes? If you have “lymph node positive” breast cancer, it is likely you will be offered chemotherapy. Premenopausal women and those with multiple “positive” lymph nodes generally benefit from chemotherapy. If your breast surgeon detects cancer in your lymph nodes before surgery, there may be specific advantages to undergoing “neoadjuvant chemotherapy.” “Inflammatory Breast Cancer” requires chemotherapy If you have been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, the first step is neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery. This type of cancer has a high likelihood of spreading to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body. Starting chemotherapy as soon as possible is essential to treating this aggressive breast cancer. A mastectomy is performed after chemotherapy, followed by radiation to the area of the mastectomy to lessen the chance of cancer growing back in that area. What are the advantages of “neoadjuvant chemotherapy”? Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is when chemotherapy is given before surgery, not afterwards. There are specific advantages to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in appropriately selected patients. How can a genomic “Oncotype DX” test be helpful? Patients who have a small, estrogen receptor positive, HER2 receptor negative tumor and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX genomic assay. This cutting-edge test looks deeper into breast cancer cells to better identify people who may benefit from chemotherapy with ER+, HER2 – breast cancers.
Breast Cancer Pathogenesis
 
04:40
Breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, and the second leading cause of cancer death.Breast cancer cells have receptors on their surface and in their cytoplasm and nucleus. Chemical messengers such as hormones bind to receptors, and this causes changes in the cell. Breast cancer cells may or may not have three important receptors: estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and HER2. ER+ cancer cells depend on estrogen for their growth. Untreated, HER2+ breast cancers are generally more aggressive than HER2- breast cancers. Cells that do not have any of these three receptor types are called triple-negative, although they frequently do express receptors for other hormones, such as androgen receptor and prolactin receptor. It is important to understand the aetio-pathogenesis of this common disease, which is associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially if not detected early. Therefore, the roles of early screening in high risk or susceptible individuals, as well as proper surveillance of treated cases in order to detect recurrence at the early stages have been advocated.

What is HER2-positive breast cancer? | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
 
02:25
HER2-positive breast cancer represents 15-20 percent of all new cases of breast cancer. Eric P. Winer, MD, director of Breast Oncology at the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers, describes HER2-positive breast cancer symptoms and treatment options. To find out more visit http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Breast-Cancer-Treatment-Center.aspx Transcription: HER2-positive breast cancer represents about 15% to 20% of all new cases of breast cancer. In women who have HER2-positive breast cancer—and the occasional man, of course, who may have this—there are too many copies of the HER2 gene in the nucleus of the cancer cell, and that gives rise to too much HER2 protein on the surface of the cancer cell. As a result of HER2, the cancer cell is able to grow and spread and invade more readily. HER2 is something that is very important for the cancer, because it helps it survive and flourish, which is of course good for the cancer and bad for the patient. This used to be one of the worst subtypes of breast cancer—and it probably does tend to affect younger women a little bit more than older women, although we see it for across all ages—but what has changed is that over the past 15 years, we have developed so-called ‘targeted treatments’ for HER2-positive breast cancer. The first of those treatments is the drug Trastuzumab, which a lot of people call ‘Herceptin,’ but there are three additional targeted treatments that are now approved for HER2-positive breast cancer, which include the drug called Pertuzumab and a drug called T-DM1 and a drug called Lapatinib—all of these are very drugs for HER2-positive breast cancer. Sometimes they’re used alone. Most of the time they’re used in combination with other treatments—specifically chemotherapy or other forms of anti-HER2 treatment—and they can be very, very effective. What has changed is that as a result of these treatments, there are more women with early-stage HER2-positive breast cancer who are cured of their cancer, and even in women who have more advanced forms of cancer, who have stage 4 or metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer. These drugs have prolonged life and as importantly have dramatically affected quality of life.

Genetic testing for cancer: A mother's gift to her family
 
02:29
Kristin Gilhool and Marc Hirschler inherited a lot from their mother... bright smiles and a zest for life. But, they also inherited a heightened risk for cancer. Their mother, Reenie Hirschler, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994. She was then diagnosed in 2008 with ovarian cancer. She also had skin cancer as well. Reenie insisted on having her kids tested to see if they had inherited the mutated BRCA2 gene from her. Lancaster General Health genetic counselor, Erin Sutcliffe, says that a properly-functioning BRCA2 gene will prevent a tumor from overgrowing which can lead to malignant cell growth and cancer. When there is a mutation in this BRCA2 gene, the cell growth is not functioning as it should, heightening the risk for cancer. DNA is isolated from a blood or saliva sample to test for abnormalities in gene makeup. Both Kristen and Marc tested positive for the BRACA2 gene mutation, putting them and their children at greater risk for breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. Kristin was proactive after finding out this news and decided to have her ovaries removed. She decided to keep her breasts, but has appointments every 6 months for an MRI and mammogram, so that they can catch a cancer early enough then will decide to have them removed. Marc is now screened more often then the average person for breast cancer, prostate cancer, and skin cancer. But he is grateful to his mom for having him tested, saying, "I can only say to my mom, thank you... and I'm very lucky." Reenie passed away in March 2011, but left behind a gift that may save the lives of her children and generations to come. Kristen says, "My mom saved my life and possibly the lives of my children and grandchildren." For more cancer stories, please visit http://facingcancertogether.witf.org

Genetic Testing for Elevated Risk of Breast Cancer
 
04:06
Actress Angelina Jolie has sparked a national conversation after opting to undergo a preventative double mastectomy when she tested positive for the breast cancer gene, BRCA1. Jolie's family history combined with her test results put her at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer, according to news reports. Jolie's choice to undergo a preventative double mastectomy reduced her risk of developing breast cancer from 87% to 5%. Dr. Jennifer Klemp, Ph.D, MPH, Director of the Breast Cancer Survivorship Center at The University of Kansas Cancer Center, explains what Jolie and many women go through when assessing the risks of genetic testing.

Breast Cancer Receptors: Learn What You Need to Know
 
08:26
We teach you to about breast cancer tumor receptors and why they are important in your breast cancer treatment. Chemotherapy and hormonal therapy are based on your receptor pattern. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. What receptors do my tumor have? 2. What type of treatment do they suggest I will need? 3. May I have a copy of all my pathology reports? 4. Do my receptors already suggest I need chemotherapy? 5. Do my receptors show I will need hormonal therapy? 6. Would I benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy? What are Breast Cancer Receptors? Once a breast biopsy is determined to be an invasive by a pathologist under the microscope, they will automatically run at least three more tests on the same tissue to determine what “receptors” are present. Receptors are tiny proteins on the surface of the cells that act like “light switches” that can turn cancer cell growth “on” or “off.” The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR), and HER2 receptor results are incredibly important for you to know and understand. Receptors are different than “grade” and “stage” as outlined in the diagram below. All are different pieces of the breast cancer puzzle that your physicians will assemble to determine the best therapy for you. In the case of receptors, these are key determinants as to whether you will or will not benefit from hormonal therapy (pills) or chemotherapy. The receptors involving a precancerous lesion such as DCIS have different implications and are addressed in our DCIS course. Receptors that suggest Hormonal Therapy Estrogen Receptor Positive (ER+) tumors are always treated with hormonal therapy. Usually these types of medications (pills) are taken for a total of 5 to 10 years. It is still possible that one may need chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. If you are Progesterone Receptor Positive (PR+) then you will likely need hormonal therapy, even if you are ER-. The Estrogen Receptor plays a much more important role in cancer care than the Progesterone Receptor. Receptors that suggest Chemotherapy Determining if you need chemotherapy is a very complex decision process and is primarily driven by your medical oncologist. Your “receptor pattern” is a key piece of information that is known early in your breast cancer journey. In about 30% of patients with an invasive breast cancer, the receptor pattern alone can strongly suggest that chemotherapy will be needed, regardless of what is found at surgery. We list a few of the more common “chemotherapy receptor patterns” below. Many factors, including a large cancer and cancer that is present in the lymph nodes, also point someone towards chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy“ (here). Often if someone needs chemotherapy, they will likely benefit also from hormonal therapy after chemotherapy if their estrogen receptor is positive. Estrogen Receptor Negative (ER-) tumors do not respond to anti-estrogen oral medications that are essential for treating estrogen receptor positive (ER+) tumors. Quite simply, patients with ER negative tumors will benefit from chemotherapy if they are healthy enough to tolerate it. ER negative tumors are more aggressive cancers, but respond very well to chemotherapy. This includes “triple negative” breast cancers. Progesterone Receptors (PR) play a much smaller role than estrogen or HER2 receptors and are not addressed here. HER2 Receptor Positive (HER2+) tumors are very responsive to chemotherapy when paired with new breakthrough drugs that target these tumors, such as Herceptin and Perjeta. The same holds true if a HER2-positive tumor is also ER positive. Take our “HER2-Positive“ video lesson to learn more (here). HER2-positive tumors are more aggressive cancers, but we now can treat them more effectively with chemotherapy and “targeted immunotherapy” drugs that are designed to destroy HER2-positive cancers. “Triple Negative” (ER-)(PR-)(HER2-) tumors are also fast growing tumors that are usually treated with a specific chemotherapy regimen. These tumors are not responsive to hormonal therapy at all, but are sensitive to chemotherapy. If you have “Triple Negative Breast Cancer“ review our video lesson (here). Take home message: Make sure to ask for a copy of the pathology report from your biopsy. Ask your breast surgeon and medical oncologist to explain to you what your receptors mean regarding your treatment. Sometimes the HER2 receptor results can take up to two weeks to become finalized. Inquire early on with your physicians about your benefit from hormonal therapy and/or chemotherapy.
Diagnosed with Breast Cancer - Tammy - Cancer Survivor Story
 
04:04
Today we're presenting a moving survivor story from breast cancer conquerer, Tammy. Watch to hear how doctors rushed her to decide on chemo, and how she change her diet and lifestyle with the help of The Truth About Cancer. Watch the series that changed Tammy's life here: http://bit.ly/ttac-surv-watch-agq-yt Tammy's story began when she went in for her annual exam with her primary physician concerned about a lump in her breast. When they gave her the results in February 2014, she was informed that she had Stage 3 breast cancer. And just like we've heard from so many other cancer survivors, they had her scheduled for chemo – before she could stop and think. Not knowing what to do, she followed her doctor’s orders. What followed, Tammy wouldn’t wish on her worst enemy. The terrible destruction of her body and well-being. Worse still, after five months of chemo and radiation, they told her the cancer would definitely come back. And it would definitely kill her. Only days after that, Tammy’s friend gave her The Truth About Cancer’s A Global Quest docu-series. What she learned was mind blowing and changed her life around. She focused on building up her immune system and overall health, and she prayed. Watch the video to hear all the details of Tammy's cancer journey and where she stands now.

AncestryDNA, Helix, and 23andMe offer genetic tests. But 23andMe is the only company approved by the Food and Drug Administration to include info on the risk of breast cancer, based on 3 mutations, the BRCA 1 and 2 genes. Experts claim that a "negative" result on 23andMe's test could give people the wrong idea that they're not at risk for breast cancer. But they could still be at risk. An education pamphlet will now be included in 23andMe's test. It will include the statement: "Women without a variant are still at risk of developing cancer. It's important to continue with any cancer screenings your healthcare provider recommends." Actress Angelina Jolie made news after she removed her breasts and ovaries after testing positive for the BRCA1 mutation. In addition to mutations, experts say that family history, ancestry, and lifestyle, contribute to cancer risks. http://www.businessinsider.com/23andme-new-cancer-test-problem-genetics-testing-2018-3 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

BRCA The Breast Cancer Gene
 
01:54
Cancer struck close to Leslie Anderson's heart. "I unfortunately lost my mother to breast cancer when I turned 18," says Leslie Anderson. And three years ago her sister was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The two occurrences, years apart, triggered something in Anderson. "I knew in the back of my mind that we would be excellent candidates to be tested for the BRCA gene. And out of the four sisters I have, three of us came back positive for BRCA 1," says Anderson. "BRCA gene is an inherited gene line mutation that puts people at an elevated risk for breast cancer. Basically because the protein their body makes does not repair their DNA properly," says Dr. Lea Blackwell, surgical breast oncologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. Knowledge is power. In this case, genetic advances are helping women find out if they are pre-disposed to breast and ovarian cancers. Both are linked to this BRCA gene. The information puts them in the driver's seat. "You can act on that information and try to prevent breast cancer. And what's recommended is to have a prophylactic mastectomy. And then they also recommend that you have bilateral ovarian removal," says Dr. Blackwell. It wasn't a tough choice for Anderson. It was the only choice. She had both breasts and both ovaries removed. "The research that they have done has shown that it reduces our risk from 90% to less than 2%. Having seen my mother go thru that, I just really wanted to take that off the table," says Anderson. Only a fraction of women have this mutation- it's more common in women with specific, aggressive forms of disease. "Women with triple negative breast cancer, and people under the age of 40 with breast cancer," says Dr. Blackwell. Anderson seized the chance her mother never had- and took the weight off her chest. "Almost like an anchor on your chest, I feel that's totally gone," says Anderson.

Breast Cancer Patients Declare Victory as Supreme Court Bars Patenting of Human Genes
 
18:36
http://www.democracynow.org - In a major victory for women's health, the Supreme Court has ruled 9-0 that isolated human genes may not be patented. The case concerned the firm Myriad Genetics' patent on genes linked to higher risks of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. The firm claimed it had the authority to stop all research on genes it owned to patents to — BRCA-1, or Breast Cancer One, and a similar gene, BRCA-2 — and was the only company that could conduct life-saving tests revealing if women had mutations in those genes--often at a prohibitive cost for most patients. "It's a very important decision," says our guest Judge Robert Sweet, the senior federal judge for the Southern District of New York who originally invalidated Myriad Genetics' patents in the case now before the Supreme Court. "The issue of knowledge and freedom of genomic knowledge is something that will be critical in the years to come." We're also joined by Lisbeth Ceriani, a woman who participated in the lawsuit after her oncologist noted she was at high-risk for developing ovarian cancer, only to find out her insurance didn't cover the BRCA genetic test; and by Sandra Park, a Senior Attorney with the ACLU's Women's Rights Project and a lead counsel on the case. "With the ruling today, we fully expect much better access and much better options for patients, as well as for scientists who want to look at different parts of the genome," Park says. "They no longer now need to deal with patents on the thousands of genes on our genome when they're engaging in their scientific work."
