A genetic approach to cancer treatment

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen

Article by Kristin Clift The medical community has historically defined and treated cancer based on where it is found in the body, such as the breast, lung or colon. So what has changed?  The FDA has recently started to approve treatments based on the genetic makeup of cancer rather than where the cancer is located. […]
