deCODE Launches deCODE BreastCancer(TM), a Genetic Test to Screen for Risk of the Common Forms of Breast Cancer
Date:10/8/2008

ng rare mutations that confer very high risk of early onset breast cancer. These are very valuable tests, but they do not measure genetic risk of the common forms of the disease. The DNA markers identified recently by deCODE represent an important step toward filling current gaps in our understanding of breast cancer risk. Ultimately, the goal is to deliver more personalized prevention and treatment for a much greater number of women," said Rebecca Sutphen, M.D., Clinical Geneticist at Moffitt Cancer Center and Advisory Board member at Informed Medical Decisions, Inc., a network of genetic counselors who provide support to physicians and patients using deCODE's tests.

"We speak to many people who are concerned about breast cancer through our 24/7 YourShoes Breast Cancer Support Center," said Margaret C. Kirk, CEO, Breast Cancer Network of Strength (formerly known as YME National Breast Cancer Organization). "We are very interested in all advances that could empower people to take charge of their health care and better understand their risk for developing breast cancer."

Owen Winsett, M.D., founder and director of the Breast Center of Austin, Texas, commented: "I have followed closely the recent scientific discoveries that are incorporated into this test. I am excited to be able to extend my screening and prevention practice, because this test applies to so many more women than the BRCA1 and BRCA2 tests. My patients are eager for this type of risk information and appreciate that the test can be done with a painless inner-cheek swab. I have ordered several tests on an early-access basis and plan to make this test a standard tool for helping me to decide which of my patients may benefit from screening at an earlier age, breast MRIs, and other risk reduction measures. This test helps define individual prevention, which is what so many of my patients want."

The deCODE BreastCancer(TM) test measures seven widely replicated single-letter variations (SN
