Benefits of BRACAnalysis® Testing

The results of the BRACAnalysis® test enable the development of a patient-specific medical management plan to significantly reduce the risk of cancer. BRACAnalysis will allow you to:

  • Target increased surveillance and other interventions specifically to individuals with an BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation – maximizing patient care and increasing clinical efficiency
  • Significantly improve outcomes and reduce medical costs through earlier diagnosis and treatment of cancer, should it develop
  • Counsel patients and family members on the underlying causes of the pattern of breast and/or ovarian cancers in their family
  • Avoid unnecessary interventions for family members who do not test positive for the mutation known to be in the family
