'Cancer mutates, but it has other ways to resist treatment': Expert explains how cancer can 'out smart' even the most cutting-edge drugs



Because of advances in drug design and precision medicine, researchers have been able to target certain molecules within a cell at the root of a particular disease and to develop specific therapies to undo their damages. 
Today, precision targeting combines therapy decisions with molecular insights to offer hope after a life-changing cancer diagnosis.
But there’s a dark side to cancer-killing drugs designed to match distinct cancer mutations like a key into a lock. 
Some cancers that initially respond to targeted chemotherapy become treatment-resistant – and the drug itself may not be the... read more
