Analysis of genetic changes in rare cancers enables early detection of hereditary cancer risk

Joint press release by the NCT/UCC Dresden and the NCT Heidelberg

The NCT is a cross-site cooperation between the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) in Heidelberg, as well as the DKFZ, the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden, the Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine at TU Dresden and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Dresden.

Hereditary genetic mutations play an important role in oncogenesis, but they usually remain undetected.
