Application for Cancer Genetic Counseling
Summary:
A research institute of a Spanish hospital has developed an innovative mobile application that orientates the medical professional according to individual, tumoral and familial characteristics of the patient to the most frequent hereditary cancer syndromes. The application is compatible with various devices and has a friendly user interface. They are looking for licensing agreement with companies working on medical sector.
Description:
According to the WHO, World Health Organization, cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. A person with hereditary cancer syndrome (HCS) has inherited mutations in genes that are linked to cell proliferation and/or DNA repair. In consequence, they have a greater susceptibility to different cancers.
More than 100 HCS are described, with their corresponding mutated genes and suspicion criteria defined by international guidelines. Knowing all the criteria for every single syndrome is very difficult, even for physicians devoted to cancer genetics. The HCS can be determined by a genetic test but always a pre-test genetic counseling is performed.

A research institute of a Spanish public hospital has developed an innovative mobile application to address this problem. They have developed a mobile application that orientates the medical professional according to individual, tumoral and familial characteristics of the patient to the most frequent HCSs.
The application is targeted to be used in the pre and post genetic results counseling, providing reinforcement of the genetic counseling process. The anticipated users of this tool are:
· Expert cancer genetic counselors, for a sharper risk assessment.
· Other physicians that need to screen patients who could benefit from genetic counseling referral in order to:
· Refer those patients at real risk.
· Avoid unnecessary worrisome to patients that have not real risk.

The researchers are looking for license agreeement with companies working on TIC for the health sector.
Advantages and Innovations:
The application has the main innovative advantages:
· Early diagnosis of HCS provides risk reducing strategies and therapeutic approaches for individuals and identifying relatives at risk. Relatives who are identified as non-carriers can be managed as the general population, sparing unnecessary follow up.
· Compatible with PC, MAC and portable devices (smart phones, tablets).
· Friendly interface, that allows an easy data introduction and saving.
· Uses individual, tumoral and familial features to orientate to specific syndromes.
· Retrieves: Syndrome/s that match the best to the case. And, future developments: risk reduction criteria according to different results and, main literature and web resources for the syndromes.
