Genetic signature linked to cancer prognosis identified

(Medical Research Council) Researchers from the UK's Medical Research Council Cancer Unit at the University of Cambridge have identified a genetic signature related to metabolism associated with poor patient prognosis. The results of the analysis of 8,161 tissue samples could in the future help clinicians decide how best to treat a patient as well as aid the development of new targeted treatments.
