Studies of breast cancer do not take sufficient account of patients’ race, ethnicity, economic status, education level, health insurance coverage, and other social factors, a group of scientists argue.
Oncology is the most advanced area in genomics right now. The field is setting the standard for other indications to follow and improve upon.
Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute is pushing for the use of genetic testing to transform treatment of breast cancer with the Personalised Breast Cancer Programme.
Researchers have created nanoparticles that can zap tumours with significant amounts of heat under a low magnetic field.
There’s no therapy developed yet, that can stop cancer cells from moving throughout the body. New research shows that it may be possible to do so, in freezing cancer cells and killing them where they stand.
A mechanism enabling cells to bind and isolate toxic substances could have significant implications for how tumours develop resistance to certain types of chemotherapy.
To understand the biology of diseased organs, researchers can use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types.
Computational researchers have developed a computer program which has revealed a previously unknown combination of drugs that may be the answer to triple-negative breast cancer.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic recommends genetic testing for all pancreatic cancer patients as the new standard of care, after finding six genetic mutations in patients with no family history of the disease.
The Swiss drugmaker has clearly noticed the genomic profiling group’s ability to personalise cancer care, now that it will take complete ownership of the company.
Researchers have identified a new subtype of prostate cancer that occurs in about 7% of patients with advanced disease. This subset of tumours was responsive to immunotherapy treatment.
Researchers have found that by helping to form clots within tumours, immune cells that flock to a particular type of lung cancer are actually building a foundation for the tumour to spread within the body.
