new test for response to chemo

there was an article in the daily mail recently on a new test which can identify which women will respond to chemo and which won’t. Seems a good idea to target treatment better

Mole

yes, Mole, I think it was something to do with checking the doubling up of one of the chromosones in the tumour (number 17?), which make the tumour responsive to drugs such as Epirubicin and therefore not needing to give it to those without this indicator. I was left thinking Ok well if my tumour DIDN’T have that indicator, is there anything else I would have been offered?
