The Paris Breast Center [L'Institut du Sein Paris] is introducing breast cancer risk consultations
Using Mammorisk, the predictive test assessing the individual risk profile of women aged 40 and over
Paris, France, November 18, 2020 – 19h CET - The Paris Breast Center and Predilife, a pioneer in the development and marketing of innovative risk forecasting solutions for personalized medicine, are today announcing that they have established a partnership to introduce breast cancer risk consultations.
The Paris Breast Center has been at the forefront of personalized medicine ever since it was founded in 2005 by Dr. Krishna B. Clough and Dr. Claude Nos, cancer and plastic surgeons specialized in treating breast cancer, and by Dr. Isabelle Sarfati, a plastic surgeon. The Center has played a pioneering role in France thanks to its specialized, multidisciplinary team and is now introducing a breast cancer risk assessment consultation unit for all women. This new unit will be overseen by breast and cancer surgeons Dr. Anne Sabaila Ollier and Dr. Jenny-Claude Millochau.
Giving women peace of mind by providing accurate information and made-to-measure care
The purpose of the Paris Breast Center's risk assessment consultations is to identify each woman's individual risk of contracting breast cancer and to offer a personalized screening strategy. Consultations take the form of an interview and a physical examination, plus insights from radiologists specialized in breast imaging and a MammoRisk test. A genetic consultation will be arranged for women with a family history suggesting this would be useful.
Dr. Krishna B. Clough commented: “The Paris Breast Center has always made the most advanced breast cancer therapies available together with personalized support to help alleviate the condition's impact on quality of life. The risks can often be overblown in people's minds owing to the anxieties caused by breast cancer. Our team of specialists is able to assess objectively each woman's individual risk and to offer personalized monitoring. After all, breast cancer can be cured in 90% of cases when discovered at an early stage!”
The MammoRisk predictive test developed in conjunction with L'Institut Gustave Roussy and the Breast Cancer Screening Consortium in the United States is the first test to be marketed in France that incorporates clinical, imaging and genetic data. It can assess the chances of women aged 40 and over developing invasive breast cancer over a five-year period and provide a suitable screening and monitoring program tailored to their risk profile.
