ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- MedTrust Online, LLC has incorporated the NexCura(R) Cancer ProfilerTools from Thomson Reuters into www.oncocentric.com, a free portal that provides information tools and clinically useful content to help oncologists make the best treatment decisions for their patients.
"This collaboration is another important step in helping oncologists select the best therapies for their patients," said Chris Yoo, Ph.D., president and CEO of MedTrust Online. "We are excited to develop essential tools that enable doctors to realize precision medicine."
