Film “Silent Inheritance or Coincidence?”
Angelina Jolie herself is affected and has brought it to the public: the hereditary gene mutation BRCA, which is responsible for the fact that women are more likely to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer. The film shows how patients and their families deal with the diagnosis of ovarian cancer and a possible inheritance of the BRCA gene mutation, what a genetic test means and which new therapeutic approaches are currently available for ovarian cancer patients with a proven BRCA gene mutation.
