    Hereditary Cancer in Clinical Practice is an open access journal that publishes articles of interest for the cancer genetics community and serves as a discussion forum for the development appropriate healthcare strategies.

    Cancergenetics encompasses a wide variety of disciplines and knowledge in the field is rapidly growing, especially as the amount of information linking genetic differences to inherited cancer predispositions continues expanding. With the increased knowledge of genetic variability and how this relates to cancer risk there is a growing demand not only to disseminate this information into clinical practice but also to enable competent debate concerning how such information is managed and what it implies for patient care.

    Topics covered by the journal include but are not limited to:

    • Original research articles on any aspect of inherited predispositions to cancer.
    • Reviews of inherited cancer predispositions.
    • Application of molecular and cytogenetic analysis to clinical decision making.
    • Clinical aspects of the management of hereditary cancers.
    • Genetic counselling issues associated with cancer genetics.
    • The role of registries in improving health care of patients with an inherited predisposition to cancer.
