A trial looking at personalised therapy for people with cancer of unknown primary
Rare Cancers (non-specific) / Posted 1 year ago
Researchers are looking at new ways to treat cancer. An area that they are looking at is personalised therapy.
Cancer cells have changes in their genes (DNA) that make them different from normal cells. These changes mean that they behave differently. It can also make one person’s cancer different to another’s.
A technique called genomic profiling can scan the genes of the cancer and identify those changes. Doctors hope they can match a treatment to your individual cancer.
The main aim of this trial is to find out whether personalised therapy is better than chemotherapy for people with CUP.
