A very fresh take on cancer

It seems that we respond uniquely to chemo agents depending on our own genetics. Personalized chemo is the way of the future.

I found the part about a blood test that detects solid tumors very exciting. I wonder how early it would catch them, though. It’s not made clear in the article.

I have friends who are in clinical trials and still needing more effective treatments, Yet alive and well. It is my deepest hope that all of us who are in limbo with cancer now will benefit from this new stuff. It can’t happen fast enough for me.

I wish we spent all that Mars money on cancer instead.

  1. I’d much rather that we spent all that DOD and CIA killing money – for drones and nukes and all the other useless stuff – on cancer and other diseases…exploring Mars is OK as long as we don’t try to colonize it and ruin another planet!
