HADASSAH MEDICAL ORGANIZATION UPDATE: (What our $$$ support)
Updates in HMO Research for Breast Cancer:
- HMO Sr.Oncologist, Dr. Aviad Zick and his team are examining circulating tumor DNA in patients’blood to help identify the type of cancer present and appropriate treatment.
- HMO researchers pioneered a diagnostic regimen to prevent transmission of the BRCA mutation to the next generation. This breakthrough in invitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) enables women who carry the mutation to have their embryos pre-screened.
- Professor Tamar Peretz, head of Hadassah’s Sharett Institute of Oncology is working on diagnosing cancer through blood samples rather than invasive biopsies.
Tiby and I wish you and your families a wonderful Purim and Passover season.There will be no meeting in February but we look forward to seeing you all in March for our meeting. Check Save the Dates for all upcoming events.
