New sequence variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes detected by high-resolution melting analysis in an elderly healthy female population in Croatia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are associated with family predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. Novel screening methods are required for efficient and rapid detection of sequence variants in cancer patients and their family members. METHODS The screening for variants in the breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility genes BRCA1 and… (More)
