Blood test could personalize treatment

Postby biggles » Thu May 04, 2017 9:53 am

Hi
I've not posted for a while but always keep an eye on the news. I thought this new research to tackle advanced prostate cancer could be a big step forward. :)

Apparently this new blood test could see in advance, before chemo, whether the drugs might work. To my mind, anything which cuts out unnecessary treatment and looks at the individual person rather than taking a "one size fits all" approach, must be good. Details here:

Best to you all,
