Device Uses Cancer Cells' Mass to Predict Response to Treatment - Cancer Currents Blog
Device May Predict Cancer Treatment Response - National Cancer Institute
Scientists have designed a device that can detect minuscule changes in cell mass and may allow researchers to predict how cancer cells will respond to drug treatment. Such a device could potentially help clinicians determine personalized treatment regimens for individual patients, the study authors believe. Using cancer cells from patients and mice, the researchers showed that the device, which measures changes in the mass of single cells, correctly predicted whether the cells were sensitive or resistant to a particular drug.
