Genomic Analysis Provides Clues about Most Common Form of Ovarian Cancer
In a large-scale genomic analysis of the most common and aggressive type of ovarian cancer, researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering and other centers identified genetic mutations and pathways that set the disease apart from other types of ovarian cancer and other solid tumors.
First Comprehensive Analysis Of Gene Mutations In Ovarian Cancer Brings Patients One Step Closer To Personalized Medicine
According to a large-scale genomic analysis of the most common and aggressive type of ovarian cancer, researchers from Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center and other centers within The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project identified genetic mutations and pathways that distinctly set the disease apart not only from other types of ovarian cancer, but from other solid tumors as well.
New Technology Will Improve Molecular Testing of Tumors for Patients
Memorial Sloan Kettering has made an important step forward in efficiently diagnosing gene mutations in patients' cancers on an individual basis.
Research Reveals What Drives Lung Cancer's Spread
A new study by researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center reveals the genetic underpinnings of what causes lung cancer to quickly metastasize, or spread, to the brain and the bone - the two most prominent sites of lung cancer relapse.
