Video: the personalized medicine revolution in cancer care

Cancer care is changing to become more individualized and personalized.  Detailed biologic analyses of individual cancers are increasingly enabling treatment to be tailored to match each cancer's unique vulnerabilities.  We wrote about this in a  prior blog post.  

Now, you can watch a great show about personalized cancer care from the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.  Click here to see the show.  Some aspects are specific to the Knight Institute, but most of the program will help you learn about personalized and targeted therapy for cancer.

The call-in lines, by the way, are no longer open.  Folks could call in with questions on the day the show ran on KOIN-TV in Portland.

To put a smile on your face see Larry's latest cartoon.
