Personalized Medicine – Highlights
Advances in Personalized Medicine
Technological advances along with developments in molecular medicine and data science have fueled the exploration of personalized medicine, as a result, several fields are already benefiting. Download this eBook to learn more about the topic.
Cancer Biomarkers: Powering Precision Medicine
Researchers are developing biomarker tests to detect cancer early, monitor therapeutic efficacy and predict outcomes – making diagnosis and treatment more precise.
Concepts and Promises of Personalized Medicine
What is personalized medicine (PM) and why do we need it? Download this infographic to learn about PM, a movement with the potential to help match patients to therapies far more efficiently than the current “trial and error” approach.
Liquid Biopsies May Predict Response to Therapy for Esophageal Cancers
Researchers have developed a liquid biopsy that can effectively determine if a patient with esophageal cancer will respond to certain treatments, potentially avoiding patients receiving unnecessary additional therapy.
Interpreting Tumor “Signatures” May Lead to Better Treatments and Survival
Scientists have found a way to interpret "signatures" in the chromosomes of tumors, revealing the genetic causes of cancers with some of the lowest survival rates. This may lead to more accurate treatments and improved survival.
Diversity in Genetic Research Is Key to Enhancing Treatment of Chronic Diseases in Africa
Researchers have used genetic data from 1.4 million people of diverse ancestry across sub-Saharan Africa to investigate how the use of diverse and representative data can impact our ability to predict risk of disease.
Chemo and Immunotherapy Combination Yields Promising Results Against Pancreatic Cancer
A randomized clinical trial found that a combination of immunotherapy and chemotherapy treatment boosted the one-year survival rate of pancreatic cancer by over 60%.
Immunotherapy Combination Could Extend Lives of Lung Cancer Patients
Late-breaking research from Cedars-Sinai Cancer finds an immunotherapy drug combination in Phase II clinical trials improves survival for patients with immunotherapy-resistant, non-small cell lung cancer.
Research Tools for Anti-Cancer Drug Targets
Currently, various treatments are available to cancer patients, such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy. Targeted therapy is a type of precision medicine that targets the proteins that control the growth, division and spread of cancer cells.
Is This Europe’s Most Modern Biobank?
The University of Szeged is one of Hungary’s leading research institutions with a long history of pioneering scientific achievements. For generations, the university’s scholars have been focused on collecting and storing biological samples for educational purposes as well as for clinical, biomedical and physiological research.
Deep Learning-Based Image Analysis for Label-Free Monitoring of iPSC and 3D Organoid Cultures
Complex 3D biological models such as organoids and patient-derived spheroids are gaining popularity in many biomedical research areas because they more closely recapitulate in vivo tissues.
