Brief description Women with a faulty BRCA1 gene are at high lifetime risk for breast cancer. Identifying a safe and effective prevention therapy is therefore a ‘holy grail’. We have discovered that denosumab, used to treat osteoporosis or breast cancer spread to bone, could be ‘repurposed’ as a prevention drug. BRCA-P is an international randomised controlled study that will determine if denosumab prevents breast cancer. Associated translational research will facilitate swift transfer to the clinic.
