Cancer treatment is rapidly changing with the availability of technologies for real-time genomic testing. Unique genomic changes associated with every individual’s cancer, detected with elegant precision, already form the basis for targeted therapies currently available or under development.
Note: These fictional, composite stories, which include data from actual representative patient cases, convey how information from comprehensive genomic testing may impact treatment management and care for people suffering from cancer.
Our understanding of the genomic basis of cancer is increasing at an exponential rate. We now know that not all cancers are the same, even those which arise in the same organ.
