Doctor in the House: Are Asian Women At Higher Risk of Aggressive Breast Cancer?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Cancer therapies are increasingly becoming more targeted and personalised, as we understand more about the genetic profile of various cancers. But the human genome isn’t homogenous, especially when it comes to ethnic differences. So when our genetic information about cancer is derived mainly from Caucasian populations, what does that mean for our Asian population? Prof Datin Paduka Dr Teo Soo-Hwang, Chief Scientific Officer and Dr Pan Jia Wern, Deputy Head of Genomics and Bioinformatics from Cancer Research Malaysia, are here to provide answers, off the heels of a recently-published study detailing the largest genetic database of Asian breast cancers by Malaysian scientists.
