In cancer, precision medicine uses definite information about a person's tumor to help make a diagnosis, plan treatment, find out how fine treatment is working, or make a Prognosis. Precision medicine is being used for definite cancers to help know what tests and treatment are best. Precision medicine includes testing DNA from patients' tumors to classify the mutations or other genetic changes that drive their cancer. Physicians then may be able to choice a treatment for a particular patient's cancer that finest matches, or targets, the culprit mutations in the tumor DNA. Traditional Chemotherapy works by killing cells that multiply quickly, whether usual or cancerous. Targeted therapy, a kind of precision medicine, is different. Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that targets proteins that switch how cancer cells grow, split, and spread.
There are two types of Precision Medicine of cancer:
Targeted drug therapy (drugs designed to attack a definite target on cancer cells)
Immunotherapy (medicines used to support the body's immune system attack the cancer).
