The rate of RNASEL 471delAAAG mutation was previously reported to be less than 7% in Ashkenazi prostate cancer patients. It seems plausible that the same mutation may also be involved in breast/ovarian cancer predisposition in Jewish individuals. To evaluate the role of this mutation in cancer predisposition, a total of 1011 individuals including 294 Jewish(More)
OBJECTIVES The genes associated with familial Endometrial Cancer (EC) are largely unknown. While EC is an integral part of Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer, there is an ongoing debate if EC is indeed overrepresented in hereditary breast/ovarian cancer families. METHODS Unselected Jewish women with EC who were diagnosed from January 1982 to January(More)
Ovarian cancer usually remains clinically silent until it is far advanced, and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In view of the modest impact of adjuvant treatments on survival, much effort is devoted to early detection programs and prevention strategies. However, the usefulness of early detection programs remains to be established,(More)
Previous studies suggested that appendectomy may affect cancer risk in the general population. No data on the effect of appendectomy on cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 carriers is available. Data on appendectomy, cancer type, and age at diagnosis were collected from BRCA1 (n = 677) and BRCA2 (n = 270) female Jewish Israeli mutation carriers counseled in a(More)
In previous work we have suggested a data structure based on pruning a Huffman shaped Wavelet tree according to the underlying skeleton Huffman tree. This pruned Wavelet tree was especially designed to support faster random access and save memory storage, at the price of less effective rank and select operations, as compared to the original Huffman shaped(More)
The dual adjustment to being a cancer patient and an immigrant involves major changes in life and might be a severe experience. This study set out to describe the experience of women who have come to Israel from the former Soviet Union and are coping with ovarian cancer. It focused on illness narratives as presented by 8 patients with cancer at stage III.(More)
