Genetic testing within research studies

For people diagnosed with cancer, some treatment studies cover the cost for genetic testing as part of the study.

For people who have been diagnosed with cancer, some targeted therapy studies, such as PARP inhibitor studies, include genetic testing for people who qualify for participation. You can view the PARP inhibitor studies enrolling patients on our Featured Research Page or by searching our HBOC Research Search Tool and putting the word PARP in the search field. 

For people who have not been diagnosed with cancer and for those who are not in active treatment, there are some research studies that include genetic counseling and testing. The MAGENTA Study is a clinical trial looking at different types of genetic counseling services for people with a personal or family history of breast cancer or a family history of ovarian cancer. Visit our Research Study Search Tool to find other studies that include genetic counseling and/or testing as part of the study.
