Tracing the Lineage of Lung Cancer Tumors

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine (@samuelsmith5209)

    A diagnostic test based on chromosomal rearrangements can trace the lineage of lung cancer to determine whether two separate lung cancers in the same patient are independent tumors or a tumor that has spread to another region of the lung, a Mayo Clinic study has found. For patients with multiple tumors, that distinction […]

Customizing Individualized Medicine Using Tumor Genomics To Fight Prostate Cancer

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Researchers at Mayo Clinic, and the Center for Individualized Medicine, have recently been utilizing genomic sequencing to help develop personalized care treatments for men with castration-resistant prostate cancer, a progressive and incurable stage of prostate cancer that no longer responds to hormone therapies that stop or slow testosterone production. “Men with castration-resistant prostate cancer have abysmal […]
