Scientists at Glasgow University have developed a cancer testing technique that they say could transform the way we treat the disease.
The medical team based at The Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory are able to extract huge amounts of information from tiny fragments of DNA. The information could identify the type of cancer tumour as well as any genetic variations and its resistance to drugs. It could even point to a cancer patient's prognosis. It is what is known as "precision medicine", because it could allow doctors to match treatments to individual patients. Andrew Biankin, regius professor of surgery at Glasgow University, said that it was all about "getting the right treatment to the patient at the right time". Read more HERE.
