Claus
Version 1

Motivation:
The eClaus model can be used to calculate mutation risks for BRCA1/2 as well as life-time risks for breast cancer in women from families with multiple and/or early onset cases of breast and ovarian cancer. The model can be used to assist genetic counselors in clinical decision making regarding genetic testing, intensified surveillance, and prophylatic surgery.

Description:
The Claus model is a genetic breast cancer risk calculation model assuming a single rare, highly penetrant gene. The extended version of the Claus model (eClaus), as implemented in the commercial pedigree drawing software CYRILLIC 2.1.3, calculates BRCA1/2 mutation probabilities and breast cancer risks for female individuals (test persons) based on their personal and familial cancer histories.
