Scientists Find Early Ovarian Cancer Develops in High-Risk Women

VOX TIMOR – Cancer ovary is one of the leading causes of death in most woman.

This is because the symptoms are often subtle and most tumors are not detected until an advanced stage or have spread to other tissues.

Life time risk cancer on population woman in general it is 2 percent, but for those who carry the BRCA-1 gene mutation, the risk increases between 35 percent and 70 percent.

From this problem, scientists are trying to figure out how genetic mutations put woman on risk high to hit cancer this.

They modeled the fallopian tube tissue in the laboratory. This method has the potential to help doctors to predict patient which will develop cancer ovary in the future, enabling researchers to detect early and provide prevention strategies.

“We created this fallopian organoid using cells from woman with a BRCA-1 mutation suffering from cancer ovary,” explains Clive Svendsen, executive director of the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute.

From this study, the researcher found that cancer ovary on patient actually starts with a lesion cancer in the lining of the fallopian tube.
