إكتشفت Mayo Clinic أن الطفرات الجينيّة ترتبط بسرطان البنكرياس وتستدعي إجراء اختبارات موسعة

Mayo Clinic

روتشستر، مينيسوتا. — هناك ستة من الجينات الوراثية تحتوي على طفرات جينيّة يُمكن أن يتوارثها أفراد الأسرة الواحدة وتزيد بشكل كبير من خطر تعرُّض الشخص للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس. وذلك وفقًا لأحـد البحوث الصادرة عن Mayo Clinic والمنشورة في إصدار التاسع عشر من يونيو من JAMA. على الرغم من ذلك، فقد اكتشف الباحثون وجود تلك الطفرات الوراثية في مرضى لا تُعاني عائلاتهم من أي تاريخ سابق للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس، ولذلك فإنهم يوصون بإجراء اختبارات جينيّة لجميع مرضى سرطان البنكرياس كمعيار جديد للرعاية.

A Mayo Clinic descobre mutações genéticas associadas ao câncer de pâncreas e reivindica testes aprofundados

Mayo Clinic

Seis genes contêm mutações que podem ser transmitidas entre familiares, o que aumenta substancialmente o risco de uma pessoa ter câncer de pâncreas, de acordo com a pesquisa da Mayo Clinic publicada na edição de 19 de junho da JAMA. Contudo, como os pesquisadores descobriram essas mutações genéticas em pacientes sem histórico familiar de câncer de pâncreas, eles recomendam testes genéticos para todos os pacientes com câncer de pâncreas como o novo padrão de tratamento.

Mayo Clinic Discovers Gene Mutations Linked to Pancreatic Cancer, Calls for Expanded Testing

Mayo Clinic

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Six genes contain mutations that may be passed down in families, substantially increasing a person’s risk for pancreatic cancer. That's according to Mayo Clinic research published in the June 19 edition of the JAMA. However, because researchers found these genetic mutations in patients with no family history of pancreatic cancer, they are recommending genetic testing for all pancreatic cancer patients as the new standard of care.
