Biotechnology: On Beyond Chemo and Radiation

Everything we’ve come to know about cancer treatment is changing. Cancer—the ultimate genetic wrecking ball—has become a prime focus for gene-based medicine. These changes are revolutionizing cancer treatment...and the way we live with cancer. While chemotherapy and radiation remain heavyweights, scientists are developing ever-more personalized treatments, using things like immunotherapy and molecularly targeted therapies to attack cancer at the cellular level. Cancer care is evolving from one-size-fits-all treatments to personalized therapies tailored to your specific genome.
