Genomic tests for better cancer treatment

certain extent to detect if the patient can go for so-called targeted therapies like Tarceva, Herceptin and other drugs. This study was carried out on old and less-specific cancer drugs like paclitaxel, topotecan and 5-fluorouracil.

The assay results of the study were compared with the actual results that the patient had with chemotherapy. 80% accuracy was obtained in the prediction of a specific drug or a combination of drugs against a tumour.

Josephine Querido of Cancer Research UK said: "Being able to predict who will respond to a chemotherapy drug and who will not is a hot topic for cancer researchers worldwide - it would allow doctors to identify which patients will benefit most from the treatment.

"The results presented in this study are very encouraging, and we hope approaches like these will soon be available in the clinic so that more patients will receive treatments that are right for them."
