Despite the development of drugs inhibiting the oncogenic proteins that cancer cells are dependent on, attempts to match targeted therapies to the genetic makeup of individual tumors is proving more difficult than expected. Until now, the paradigm has been a binary correlation between a mutated cancer gene and response to a given therapy. However, recent evidence indicates that different genetic alterations, such as mutations in different codons of a cancer gene, might be related to distinct… CONTINUE READING
