TINA’S WISH RESEARCHER DR. SIMON GAYTHER PUBLISHES PAPER ON NEWLY IDENTIFIED GENES associated with an increased risk for ovarian cancer
“A team of researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer, Cedars-Sinai Cancer and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have newly identified 34 genes that are associated with an increased risk for developing the earliest stages of ovarian cancer. The findings, published today in the journal Nature Genetics, will both help identify women who are at highest risk of developing ovarian cancer and pave the way for identifying new therapies that can target these specific genes.”
