Lung Cancer Gene Test Predicts Who Needs Chemotherapy – Tumor Profiles Determines High Risk Patients

Scientists at Duke University have developed a genomic test to determine which patients with early-stage lung cancer need chemotherapy and which do not. They describe the chemotherapy as a “toxic regimen of drugs”.

The test could potentially save thousands of lives each year by allowing doctors to make the important recommendation for chemotherapy. The developers of the test, at Dukes Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy, say that some patients should receive it, but are currently advised against it.
