Above all, cancer is a disease of mutations. Some of these are inherited, while others are acquired throughout an individual’s life. While these mutations drive the tumor growth and survival, they may also holds the key to cures for more patients. In addition to guiding decisions regarding existing treatments, the mutated proteins that arise from genetic mutations can also serve as targets for the immune system and personalized immunotherapy strategies.
In this webinar for patients and caregivers, our expert discusses the current state of genetic testing for cancer patients in the clinic as well as highlights efforts to tap into the full potential of genome-based medicine.
