Cancer Survival Rate Inherited

Published måndag 5 november 2007 kl 11.00
Karolinska Institute

Swedish scientists say the children of cancer victims who also get cancer have the same chance as survival as their parents.

The researchers from Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute base their findings on a database including three million Swedish families and one million cancer patients.

They found an increased risk of an early death in second-generation patients with breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. The researchers say the same may also be the case with other cancers, but they weren’t represented enough to make any conclusions.

Their work has been published in the British journal “The Lancet”.
