The “ACGH PROGENIE PROJECT”, design of slides for array CGH for genomic analises aiming at the diagnosis and the prevention of some pathologies at high medical and social impact”, aims, nowadays, to the production of a new service based on the genomic analises of array CGH and genetic in NGS.
With this service the aim is to effect the experimentation of the slides and of the genic panels. Designed for the prevention and the diagnosis of pathologies at high medical and social impact, such as mental retardation sindrome, during the prenatal phase, whose prevalence rates, nowadays, fluctuate between 0,5% and 2,5% for the industrialized countries and 4,6 % for the developing countries and regarding four different types of cancer: colorectal cancer, melanoma, breast cancer, ovarian tumor.
The colorectal cancer represents, nowadays, the third tumor, which is the most commonly diagnosed in the world, with about 1.23 millions of cases diagnosed every year and 600.000 deaths.
The melanoma is the cause of the 75% of deaths associated to the skin cancer.
Every year about 160.000 new cases are diagnosed and about 48.000 of people die, because of the consequences related to the melanoma.
The breast cancer represents 22.9% of all types of cancer in the women and it is the cause of the 13.7% of deaths for the tumor between the women.
