THE AMERICAN EXCELLENCE MEDICAL CENTER IN DUBAI (UAE) OFFERS MAMMORISK®, PREDICTIVE TEST OF BREAST CANCER
Paris, France, March 3rd, 8h-CET – PREDILIFE (Euronext Growth : ALPRE FR0010169920), specialist in innovative pathology risk prediction solutions for personalized medicine, announces the launch of Mammorisk® in Middle East.
Significant increase in breast cancer in the Middle East and North Africa
Breast cancer is the first cancer among women in the world, and the number of new cases is significantly increasing in Middle East and North Africa (1), where women display breast cancer at a younger age and with more advanced disease levels than in western countries (2).
The breast cancer predictive test MammoRisk® developed in collaboration with the Gustave Roussy Institute in Paris and the Breast Cancer Screening Consortium in United States, is a test integrating the main breast cancer risk factors. It allows doctors to assess in women over 40 the risk of developing breast cancer within 5 years and to offer women an adapted screening program.
In countries that do not yet have an established breast cancer screening strategy, the solutions developed by Predilife are an opportunity to implement an efficient personalized screening program.Indeed, current age-oriented mammography screening approach pays little attention to individual risks (3).
