Genetic Variants Could Predict Cancer's Resistance to Radiation Therapy

October 28, 2017

This video highlights a large-scale profiling effort that seeks to identify and classify mutant alleles driving resistance to radiation therapy across different cancer types.

In this video, Brian Yard, PhD, of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, discusses results of a large-scale profiling effort that seeks to identify and classify mutant alleles driving resistance to radiation therapy across different cancer types.

Yard presented the results of the study (abstract 315) at the 2017 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, held last month in San Diego.
