Dr Cathy Moelans - University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands

Dr Moelans talks to ecancertv at EACR 2016 about the feasibility of detecting microRNAs in nipple aspiration fluid (NAF) samples.

The study has shown that the aspiration procedure is associated with significantly lower discomfort rates than mammography and MRI.

For BRCA mutation carriers, the aim is to develop a NAF screening tool that may help these women decide on the timing of their prophylactic surgery, up to postponement or perhaps even avoidance.
