New treatment for people at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer

According to a new cancer research conducted at Queen's University Belfast, the scientists here have made big news by indicating new treatments for the women at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer. The research conducted shows that the women affected with BRCA1 can use drugs to control the risk of developing the disease that is better than irreversible surgery. The new treatments will open the new doors of hope for these women, who otherwise have to face an oophorectomy. These new treatments provide new options for treatments. The research is published in USA-based journal Cancer Research. An expert, Roisin Foster, the Chief Executive, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland, explains, “Cancer Focus is delighted to fund this ground-breaking research into breast cancer, which has the potential in the forseeable future to benefit women all over the world. We are only able to support this vital work because of the generosity of our local community.”
