Medical Xpress: New database could help lead to personalized treatments for breast cancer patients

Medical Xpress: New database could help lead to personalized treatments for breast cancer patients. “All current breast cancer drugs were first tested in cell lines. Each cell line began as cancer in a patient. As such, each cell line is a surrogate for that patient’s disease. A new database of 40 breast cancer cell lines, developed by Medical University of South Carolina investigators, will help researchers deepen their understanding of these cell lines and speed the development of new gene-targeted therapies.”
