Complete DNA analysis for young adults with cancer

KWF finances the expansion of the infrastructure for cancer research in young adults with almost 4.5 million euros. These are young people aged 18 to 39, also known as AYAs: Adolescents and Young Adults. With this grant, Hartwig Medical Foundation will use the latest techniques to visualize the complete DNA of the tumor for 1,000 […]

Single WGS analysis of metastases is sufficient in most cases

DNA analysis of the tumor is of crucial importance to determine treatment options for patients with metastasized lung cancer. But how often does this procedure have to be repeated during the course of the disease? In many cases, a single complete DNA analysis by means of whole genome sequencing (WGS) suffices, concludes researcher Joris van […]

Actionable metastatic cancer genome is remarkably stable over time, despite treatment with drugs

A one-time analysis of the entire tumor DNA is almost always sufficient to find all DNA errors that may be relevant for treating metastatic cancer. This is because actionable DNA errors remain remarkably stable over time, despite treatment with drugs. This discovery was made by Dutch researchers in a study led by the Netherlands Cancer […]
