Appel à toute femme de 36 à 63 ans (née entre 1950 et 77), non exposée au DES, pour constituer un groupe de comparaison, appelé aussi groupe témoin

Vous êtes nées entre 1950 et 1977 d’une mère qui n’a pas pris de Distilbène?
Votre parcours médical sera très utile pour établir si les descendantes des femmes traitées pendant leur grossesse par cette hormone de synthèse ont un risque accru de déclencher un cancer du sein. Des volontaires sont encore nécessaires. Le questionnaire est en ligne jusqu’au 9 septembre.
