Precision Medicine Benefits Pediatric Cancer Care, Study Say
Investigators at the Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center found that precision medicine can be used to diagnose genetic abnormalities and properly treat patients with pediatric brain cancers.

By testing tumor samples, researchers were able to demonstrate that finding genetic anomalies in brain tumors is a clinically feasible way to guide patient treatment, the researchers concluded in a press release. The authors of the study say there is an urgent need to find new methods for treating brain cancer in children....
