Prof Fabrice Andre, Dr Ramesh Ramanathan, Prof Peter Harper and Prof Robert Leonard

ecancer Managing Editor Prof Gordon McVie chairs a roundtable discussion at ESMO 2012 with Prof Fabrice Andre (Institut Gustave Roussy, Paris, France), Dr Ramesh Ramanathan (Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center, Scottsdale, USA), Prof Peter Harper (Kings College, London, UK) and Prof Robert Leonard (Imperial College, London, UK) on personalised medicine for cancer. They look at topics such as the need to identity differences between stratified medicines versus personalised medicine and defining personalised medicine as individualising treatment for patients.

There are many factors that are already considered in treatment; however, there is a need to look further into the molecular alteration and genomics of a patient for more in-depth and effective personalised treatment.

The prediction of cytotoxic effects and retrospective analysis of genomic treatments, will allow for the selection of patients based on evidence from clinical trials, saving cost in the treatment and avoiding toxicity to the patient.
