Precision Medicine: Oncology

Current advances in technology have unveiled an enormous heterogeneity in cancer dysfunctional mechanisms. This gain of awareness has opened a new generation in oncology, which relays on the idea that each tumor is unique and should be treated in a unique way depending on its distinctive molecular dysfunctions. This is the compelling opportunity to design therapeutic approaches tailored on individual patients, namely Precision Medicine. In future, cancer management will be more individualized and based on the actual genetic changes in each person’s cancer. Recent advancements have been made in the field of molecular biology; there will be extensive genetic testing in the future that will help scientists prepared drugs that directly target those changes. Researchers around the world are carrying out studies to analyse whether treatments that target the genetic changes directly will help cancer patients, irrespective of the site of the tumour.
