In oncology, precision medicine is not just a hope for the future

There are plenty of advances in oncology treatments to be excited about – from immunotherapy to cancer vaccines and monoclonal antibodies – but unfortunately cancer is such a complex disease that none of these are guaranteed to work for every patient.

Precision medicine may be the answer to this problem. Also known as personalised medicine, it involves giving patients the treatments that will best help their condition based on specific genetic biomarkers they display.
