Lack of diversity in genomic databases may affect therapy selection for minority groups

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Low representation of minority groups in public genomic databases may affect therapy selection for Black patients with cancer, according to new Mayo Clinic research published in npj Precision Oncology. The researchers investigated the use of genomic databases and found that tumor mutation burden was significantly inflated in Black patients compared to White patients. As a […]

Twenty-first century precision medicine cancer care

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

As genomic sequencing has become faster and less expensive, physicians have used this new technology to guide and manage care for patients with cancer. Genomic testing, also known as genomic profiling, was initially used for patients with advanced cancer when standard therapy failed. The goal of the testing was to identify unique genetic characteristics of […]

Study evaluates effectiveness of deep genomic profiling in clinical setting

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Genomic profiling is used today for patients with advanced cancers to help develop new ways to diagnose and treat their disease and offer an individualized treatment plan. While gene panel testing is relatively commonplace, there are many barriers to using new and more sophisticated DNA technologies. According to Mitesh Borad, M.D., an oncologist at the […]

New biomarker discovery approaches to improve patient care

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Biomarkers are an important measure of health and disease that can help doctors understand how to more effectively treat cancerous tumors. The topic of TIGER-Bio, a new approach to biomarker discovery, came into the spotlight in a workshop on the final morning of Individualizing Medicine 2016: Advancing Care through Genomics, The session, TIGER-Bio: The Integrated […]
