  1. 1. Seven in One Blow: Scientists Discover DNA Regions Influencing Prostate Cancer Risk Hebrew U. Scientists Identify Molecular Basis for DNA breakage
  2. 2. FOLDING
  3. 3. FOLDING
  4. 4. The DNA is a complex macromolecule formed two helices, forming pairs of bases that according the order they follow, they encode one function or they don’t encode any function. The DNA is organized in chromosomes that, in the human being, they are organized in 23 pairs of different chromosomes. INTRODUCTION
  5. 5. Prostate cancer has become much more common in men, resulting in some prostate cells mutate and begin to multiply uncontrollably, which can spread to other parts of the body causing metastasis. Seven in One Blow: Scientists Discover DNA Regions Influencing Prostate Cancer Risk
  6. 6. Several discoveries have identified genes associated with prostate cancer, including 16 different DNA regions linked to an increase in cancer which has led to several studies in order to get to find new variables that relate specific gene. Seven in One Blow: Scientists Discover DNA Regions Influencing Prostate Cancer Risk
  7. 7. Patients with prostate cancer were studied which showed the results of new variant located in DNA regions that were associated with carcinogenesis. Seven in One Blow: Scientists Discover DNA Regions Influencing Prostate Cancer Risk
  8. 8. Seven in One Blow: Scientists Discover DNA Regions Influencing Prostate Cancer Risk This study may explain more properly the 25% risk of familial prostate cancer
  9. 9. STUDENT OBSERVATION Studies are important contributions in medicine as they lead to the implementation of new prevention techniques for people with risk of prostate cancer, achieving in the future a decrease in the number of cases.
  10. 10. Cancer is uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells or malignant cells multiply when the body needs them and die when the body does not need.   HEBREW U. SCIENTISTS IDENTIFY MOLECULAR BASIS FOR DNA BREAKAGE
  11. 11. In cancer DNA breakage is characteristic that makes it present a series of mutations that alter the normal functioning of the body as is the process of replication.   HEBREW U. SCIENTISTS IDENTIFY MOLECULAR BASIS FOR DNA BREAKAGE
  12. 12. The fragile sites are the parts that are most affected during the early stages of cancer because they are the first structures to break causing the breakdown of DNA.   HEBREW U. SCIENTISTS IDENTIFY MOLECULAR BASIS FOR DNA BREAKAGE
  13. 13. The Replication is essential for the transfer of genetic information from generation to generation which is the basis of heredity. The end result of this process two identical molecules to the original.   HEBREW U. SCIENTISTS IDENTIFY MOLECULAR BASIS FOR DNA BREAKAGE
  14. 14. STUDENT OBSERVATION This is research that provides important and significant results as analyzing the molecular basis of the breakdown of DNA may carry out treatment for filing or treat cancer, based all the features that are affected in this type of pathology and what these causes in human life.
  15. 15. With the medical application of these studies and further research may be a breakthrough in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer. MEDICAL UTILITY
  16. 16. A right and proper management can reduce cancer mortality rates currently making the purchase updated medical staff that will lead to improved quality of life for these patients. MEDICAL UTILITY
  17. 17. The good recognition of DNA alterations, mutations and affected parties leads to better cancer management solutions that help implementing the proper functioning of DNA.   MEDICAL UTILITY
  18. 18. The results of the current studies provide knowledge to allow implementation of cancer prevention methods to avoid complications in turn metastasis or death. MEDICAL UTILITY
