The goal of this study is to learn more about the genetic material, called DNA, of women who have had DCIS and have the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation. This DNA can be obtained through a saliva sample. Studying DNA might help us to better understand the prognosis and outcome for this group of women and to find out whether there is a relationship between DCIS, BRCA1 and BRCA2.
You can join the Acupuncture for Sleep Problems study if you match ALL of these MAIN categories:
You have had an initial diagnosis of only DCIS (This means no invasive breast cancer at the time you first received your diagnosis of breast cancer. You are still eligible if you have invasive breast cancer if the invasive breast cancer was diagnosed at least six months after the DCIS)
You have been tested and found to have a genetic mutation in either BRCA 1 or BRCA 2
You are over 20 years old
Whether you have breast cancer or not, be sure to share with other women by tweeting or e-mailing this post. The Internet helps us easily share messages with others, so please take advantage of this great medium.
