Unique database of cancer -- designed to personalize treatment -- is launched
Date:10/26/2010

Washington, DC Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of Georgetown University Medical Center, announces the launch of the Georgetown Database of Cancer or G-DOC. Under development for two years, G-DOC is a repository for biological information that is normally only available in scattered information libraries and tissue banks, if at all. Data sets grow as researchers deposit new information. G-DOC also contains relevant tools to analyze the data, plus new ones not seen before.

An overall goal of G-DOC's use is to accelerate the ability to tailor or personalize medical treatment for patients. For physicians and researchers, G-DOC means they need only access a single website portal on their computers to open a unique universe of information on cancer something that has not been widely available before to oncology researchers who must access a variety of data through different information systems. Researchers at Georgetown will be able to incorporate the G-DOC analytical capabilities immediately into their clinical and laboratory research, as their funding allows. The G-DOC developers hope to open the database for use outside of Georgetown in 2011.

G-DOC is a "one-stop shop" designed to make the vision of personalized medicine a reality, says its creator, Louis M. Weiner, MD, director of Lombardi, which largely funded G-DOC's development. By giving cancer researchers all the information and analytical tools they need, "you can develop a much more complete picture of what causes individual cancers to develop and to grow, and what new agents are needed to treat them."

G-DOC is one part of the systems medicine paradigm that GUMC has launched. "Systems medicine is an approach that will allow health care providers to understand the interplay between genetics and the environment in such a way that one day, they will be able to predict who is at greatest risk, rather than simply react to symptoms," says Howard J. Fede
