BREVAGenplus® involves a simple cheek swab-based test, which helps in determining women’s risk of developing sporadic breast cancer. It is a first test of its kind as it is clinically validated, which evaluates risk for sporadic breast cancer. It is CLIA-approved and be used in Caucasian, Hispanic and African-American women aged more than 35.

As per the report, one in eight women will suffer breast cancer in their lifetime. 15% of the breast cancers are hereditary with 5% to 10% of breast cancers caused by BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations or 5% to 10% are unknown hereditary cancers. Rest 85% of breast cancer cases are non-hereditary (sporadic) with less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family history and only half will test positive for the BRCA mutation. Genetic Technologies’ enhanced breast cancer test covers all non-BRCA related cancers.

Its breast cancer risk assessment test offers the potential for more efficient use of screening resources, such as mammography and MRI, through precision genetic risk profiling across the entire population of women. As per the report, screening programs that test all women at the same intervals will be over-screening seven women and underscreening one woman.

Every year more than 240,000 new breast cancer cases are diagnosed in the U.S., where more than 40,000 patients lose their life. With early detection, more than 95% of such cases can be prevented.

In risk assessment over tumor invasive stages, it is observed that 95% chances of survival for five years with tumors less than 20 mm, 82% chances of survival for tumors between 20mm and 50 mm, and 63% chances of survival for tumors more than 50 mm. Breast cancer develops before it is detected, therefore, it is suggested as “Know Your Risk”. Hence, an early detection results in a better outcome of the treatment.
