102 Oncology Genomics

A recent study conducted by the University of California San Diego found that of 346 Phase I clinical trials, more than 13,000 patients whose treatment was selected based on the molecular characteristics of their tumor benefited from the advantages precision medicines offer. The study observed that tumor shrinkage rates were 30.6% at treatment sites employing precision medicine, compared to the 4.9% of those that did not. It is well known that today, the more we personalize treatment to the patient and the tumor, the more we achieve better outcomes. We no longer have to wait for the “future.”

With results like these, there is no doubt that Oncology Genetics has become a hot topic in the clinical field.

Key Concepts Covered:

  • Cancer and the role of genetics
  • The development of Precision Oncology
  • Real-life cases of Precision Oncology
  • Risks and ethical observations regarding genomics
