Reverse Engineering Personalized Medical Therapies: Finding the Disease to Fit the Drug

■ Medicine / Reverse Engineering Personalized Medical Therapies: Finding the Disease to Fit the Drug A chemistry-first approach for identifying drug targets in lung cancer. Researchers in a multi-national research consortium have developed a novel strategy for identifying drugs that target patient-specific disease mechanisms in lung cancer, thereby addressing the pressing need for effective treatments across the broad patient population with diverse underlying genetic lesions. By screening the effects of a large library of disparate chemical compounds against a broad, well characterized panel of cellular models for the various genetic mutations and characteristic physical features of lung cancers, the researchers including the team led by … Continue reading Reverse Engineering Personalized Medical Therapies: Finding the Disease to Fit the DrugRead More →
