At the 14th St. Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference 2015, Prof. Dr. med. Michael Untch (HELIOS Klinikum Berlin-Buch, Berlin, Germany) and Prof. Dr. med. Peter Fasching (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany) discuss the functions of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins in response to DNA damage in BRCA-related breast cancer. The development of molecular profiling in BRCA-related breast cancer has allowed an increasingly accurate assessment of tumour biology and should allow us to utilise this mutation in the treatment of the cancer.
