A new chip etched with fluid channels sends blood samples through a hydrodynamic maze to separate out rare circulating cancer cells into a relatively clean stream for analysis. It is already in use in a breast cancer clinical trial.
Immune response prognostic for prostate cancer survival, recurrence and response to radiation therapy
A new study finds that immune response in prostate cancer may be able to forecast how patients will respond to radiation therapy, as well as their likelihood of disease recurrence and survival outcomes.
A nanoparticle-assisted optical imaging technique could one day enable doctors to read those clues in real time, providing a non-invasive precision medicine approach that could match treatment to individual tumors.
University of Michigan Radiation Oncologists are attending ASTRO. Issam El Naqa, Robert Dess, Yi Luo, Yue Cao and Payal Soni will be presenting today.
