Today many cancer patients die as a result of tumors that are non-responsive to commonly used standard platinum chemotherapy drugs. To make matters worse, there is still no accurate way to identify these patients. Our novel method addresses this unmet need in cancer chemotherapy*. Our test will reduce mortality by identifying chemo-resistant patients prior to any drugs being administered, saving them from the unnecessary suffering from ineffective toxic drugs, and giving them a chance at more effective treatments. Our test has the potential to create a paradigm shift in cancer treatment decision making and will ultimately save millions of lives.
