MAGENTA – Making Genetic Testing Accessible

The MD Anderson Cancer Center is doing a study about Ovarian Cancer and genetics. Through the study, they will perform genetic testing to determine if you have genetic mutations that could contribute to a higher risk of Ovarian Cancer.

The MAGENTA study aims to improve availability of genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes to at-risk individuals through the use of an online genetic testing service. Our hope is that making genetic testing accessible, without requiring them to travel to their healthcare provider, will save more lives by preventing cancer in women found to be at an increased risk of getting it.
