Harvard-Led Team Develops Screen to Predict Clinical Efficacy of Targeted Cancer Drugs | GenomeWeb
Investigators led by a group of scientists from Harvard Medical School have developed a high-throughput platform to profile 500 cell lines derived from diverse epithelial cancers to help them predict their sensitivity to 14 kinase inhibitors.
Although the researchers found that the majority of cell lines were largely refractory to each inhibitor, they also noticed that a small subgroup of very sensitive cell lines could be identified for most inhibitors.
