The decision was voted by the Agency's Collegiate Board and published in the Official Gazette of the Union on May 8, scheduled to come into force only in two months. With them, it will be easier for patients to claim this importation and to enter the process.

The regulation serves as a complement to the actions already taken by Anvisa in order for patients to have access to the product.

In the face of all this, Lindqvist argues that the woman should not expose herself to the sun. "We have known for a long time that there are three habits that are dangerous to our health: smoking, being sedentary and being overweight." Now, with this research we have seen that there is a room: avoiding exposure to the sun, "says Lindqvist.

Cancer has hereditary influence in 5% to 10% of cases

All cancers are caused by some influence on the genes of cells in some part of the body. This does not mean that this change is hereditary. Cancer can be classified as sporadic or hereditary. Sporadic cancer comprises most cases of cancer and occurs at random, with no relation to family groups. On the other hand, hereditary cancer is characterized by genetically defined syndromes, producing a high risk of developing cancer.
