Double Mutations in Oncogene May Improve Patient Response to Targeted Therapy

10 days ago   |   By Pacific Biosciences

The PIK3CA oncogene has been the target of intense research scrutiny for decades. Remarkably, though, a new paper in Science today reports completely novel findings about compound mutations that are associated with patients who respond extremely well to targeted therapies. While more studies are needed, this work has important implications for delivering treatment to patients with breast cancer and other common cancers.
