PARP inhibitors

Met with Lisa Walker head if Genetics at the Churchill. She very simply explained the effects of BRCA 1 & 2 Claire’s family history seems to indicate strongly that the gene may be present. Bloods were taken and the results will be back in 4-6 weeks. Could have had them in 12 days from the states but this was £3000.00.

Lisa also confirmed that Professor Harris is the main man in respect to clinical trials of PARP inhibitors.


We then met up with Claire’s breast care nurse Gill Stoker who helped us to obtain copies of all the CT & MRI scans for Professor Dalgleish next week.
