Cancer breakthrough: New test could help predict best treatment for your specific cancer


Scientists at the ICR tested the new technique on individual cancer cells in the lab and tumour cells taken from lung fluid in people with lung cancer.

They used an algorithm to predict how sensitive cells were to individual cancer drugs, and found the technique could predict individual drug responses more accurately than genetic features.

Researchers then used the same approach to predict sensitivity to drug combinations – using 21 different two-drug combinations.

Of 252 total drug combinations, 128 showed some level of synergy, meaning their combined effect exceeded the effect of each drug added together.
