Dr James Doroshow – National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA

Dr James Doroshow talks to ecancer at the 2012 WIN Symposium, Paris, about improving the assessment of developing targeted therapies to determine their future efficacy and the continuing sub division of cancer types.


Using biopsies and imaging techniques, preliminary evidence in only a few dozen patients can help researchers to understand the course of a drug's development.


Dr Doroshow also discusses the future of precision medicine and personalised medicine, in so far as the development of drugs and clinical trials is more about catering to the patient rather than the drug's future.


Dr Doroshow predicts all cancers becoming ‘rare’ types as each tumour and mutation is identified in each patient. This intense classification of disease type highlights the importance of creating national and global databases.
