Precision medicine, the most promising approach in the fight against cancer
Precision medicine uses information about genes, proteins and other characteristics of each patient’s tumor in order to determine the genetic diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
Targeted therapy is the foundation of precision medicine. Targeted therapy means personalized treatment which acts against the genetic or molecular changes which drive the growth, division and spread of cancer cells.
Personalized cancer treatments are often more effective and better tolerated than traditional treatments.
