At yesterday’s AACR (American Association of Cancer Research) Meeting in Washington DC researchers presented results from the Battle Trial which is a hypothesis- driven prospective study that identifies biomarkers(BM’s) to predict tumor response and thus helps select personalized therapy for lung cancer patients.Biopsy specimens were tested for eleven biomarkers from four NSCLS pathways:EGFR,KRAS,BRAF and VEGF.The Conclusion was that the BATTLE study establishes a new paradigm to investigate BM’s and molecularly targeted treatments in lung cancer patients.
