New test 'could be step towards personalised care'

Breast Cancer Campaign chief executive Baroness Delyth Morgan said a new test "could be a realistic step towards making the holy grail of personalised medicine a reality".

Baroness Morgan said:

The days of one size fits all treatment are well and truly in the past.

We need to ensure the life-saving and life-extending treatments we already have in the clinic are used more effectively - directing the right treatments to those who will benefit, and sparing others from unnecessary side effects, so that by 2050 we can achieve our ambition to overcome breast cancer.
