Once metastatic disease is documented, cure is no longer the goal and the disease is generally associated with poor outcomes, with the majority of patients dying of their disease rather than other causes. The last three decades have seen significant advances in the genomics, proteomics and molecular pathology of biomarkers in cancer, allowing for individualization of therapy that has significantly and positively impacted survival outcomes. Genetic signatures have been identified that can… CONTINUE READING
