Cytology-Based DNA Analysis to Investigate the Malignant Potential of Oral Lesions in Patients with Fanconi Anemia

2022 | British Columbia Cancer Research Institute | Research Grant

Amount Funded: $304,300

Researchers will run samples collected by brushing lesions through an automated system to detect abnormal DNA content and malignant changes. By identifying high-risk lesions, closer follow-up and early intervention can be used to prevent malignancies. The goal is to establish a centralized lab at BC Cancer to process samples to identify the risk of malignant transformation for FA patients.
