Experts at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have identified genome doubling in cancer and have correlated it to a worse prognosis across cancer types. Using MSK-IMPACT™ to analyze matched tumor and normal DNA, MSK researchers were able to identify an abnormality in tumors known as genome doubling. This doubling occurs in 28 percent of all cancers and could have significant implications for treatment options in the future.
