Genetic Test Shows Risk of Breast Cancer

If you think you have a genetic risk for breast cancer there is now a test you can take to make sure.

InterGenetics, an Oklahoma City-based company, developed the OncoVue test.

You use a mouthwash-type substance then sends the fluid to a lab where DNA from the cheek is analyzed.

The CEO of the company says the product is the result of about 14 years of research. The test costs $397 and has been accepted by the federal Food and Drug Administration.
