Ein Teil dieser Fälle geht auf bekannte ererbte Gendefekte zurück (BRCA 1 und BRCA 2, Mutationen treten bei ca. 115.000 Frauen auf). Frauen mit diesen Gendefekten tragen ein sehr hohes Risiko, schon in jungen Jahren an Brust- oder Eierstockkrebs zu erkranken. Außerdem haben Sie ein hohes Rezidivrisiko.


Ein interdisziplinäres Autorenteam hat für den Bundesverband der AOK ein so genanntes "Health know-how overview" zur Diagnostik und Beratung des erblichen Brust- und Eierstockkrebses erstellt. Das Buch bietet einen kompakten Überblick über:


- die genetische Beratung


- die verschiedenen molekulargenetischen Testverfahren


- ihre diagnostische Treffsicherheit und Verlässlichkeit und


- die Kosten


Es soll als Grundlage für alle weiteren einzuführenden Testprogramme für erblich bedingte Krebserkrankungen in Deutschland dienen.
