Medical science reported a breakthrough yesterday in cancer treatment. Saliva samples and DNA screening allowed doctors to identify mutant DNA strings in patients, accelerating treatment and potentially cure. Scientists made the breakthrough in prostate cancer, with similar work already being widely conducted in breast cancer. The results in identification and treatment of breast cancer have been applauded in reducing fatality rates – similar hopes now exist for prostate cancer patients.
These breakthrough findings highlight the importance of personalised healthcare, and the technology exists to provide such service at scale.
