Improving Clinical Outcomes by Looking at Individual Response to Drug Therapies

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pharmacogenomics — prescribing medications based on a person’s genomic information — is one area of precision medicine that can offer an immediate impact on improving a patient’s care.  People metabolize different drugs at different rates, some faster, some slower.  On occasion, a specific drug may have devastating consequences to a patient.  Pharmacogenomics, or PGx as we […]

Genomic Rearrangement Drives Pancreatic Cancer

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pancreatic cancer remains the fourth leading cause of cancer-associated deaths in the United States. While prognosis has improved for other major cancers thanks to early diagnosis, better therapies and a more comprehensive knowledge of genetic factors, death rates from pancreatic cancer continue to rise. Roughly 90 percent of pancreatic cancers are ductal pancreatic adenocarcinomas (PDAC) […]
