Evaluation of the Adhesion to the GENEPY Network

2019-06-14 01:54:40 | BioPortfolio


In order to best meet the needs of all those affected by the genetic risk of cancer in our region, it is important to identify the factors likely to influence the course leading to the GENEPY surveillance network. The aim of this study is to evaluatie the adhesion to the network of care of people at genetic risk of cancer in Midi-Pyrénées (GENEPY).


This network has been open since November 2015 for people who are genetically predisposed to breast / ovarian cancer. The extension to digestive pathologies (HNPCC syndrome, PAF) is in progress. It concerns not only the persons carrying a mutation also those belonging to a family without identified mutation but whose risk of predisposition is important.

The GENEPY network is based on a collaboration between oncogenetic consultations in the region and professionals practicing in institutions (private, public) and liberal: general practitioners, gynecologists, radiologists, oncologists, gastroenterologists, psychologists ...

It is therefore a multicentric and multidisciplinary network, which aims to promote the local care of people genetically predisposed (or considered at high risk of genetic predisposition), while ensuring a high level of competence, to guarantee an optimal and equitable care on the whole of Midi Pyrenees.

The diagnosis of a new genetic disease in an individual is likely to have implications for other family members who may themselves be at risk of developing the disease and / or passing it on to their children.

The inclusion of subjects in the GENEPY network follows the genealogical study of a case (index) : relatives are identified as potentially at risk. In accordance with the recommendations, but also generally at the wish of the patients, the index case is then asked to inform its relatives and to propose them to go to an oncogenetic consultation of their choice. If these people reside in the Midi Pyrenees Toulouse oncogenetic consultation is open to them. If following this consultation a mutation is identified or that their genetic risk is considered important, they are proposed to join the GENEPY network for their monitoring.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.

Autosomal dominant disorder characterized by cone-shaped epiphyses in the hands and multiple cartilaginous exostoses. Mental retardation and abnormalities of chromosome 8 are often present. The exostoses in this syndrome appear identical to those of hereditary multiple exostoses (EXOSTOSES, HEREDITARY MULTIPLE).

Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).
