OncologySTAT Advisors Name Year's Top Developments in Cancer Treatment and Research
Date:9/9/2008

based on both traditional markers and new biomarkers. "Where oncologists used to prescribe chemotherapy for all cancer patients, they now hunt for biomarkers to ensure they can match the cancer patient with the most appropriate, cost-effective treatments," says Axel Grothey, M.D., OncologySTAT's Associate Editor.

"The path toward such types of cancer treatment won't be easy. Oncologists who pursue personalized medicine face challenges related to logistics, handling of tumor specimens, and testing of individualized treatments in clinical trials," notes Dr. Grothey. "Still, OncologySTAT's expert panel expects genetic mutations and biomarkers to have a growing role in treating more common cancer types such as lung cancer. Eventually, oncologists will pay less attention to a patient's cancer type than to genetic changes and other types of tumor markers."
