A new strategy for choosing cancer drugs

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Researchers at MIT and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have developed a novel way to test tumors for drug susceptibility. Using a device that measures the masses of single cells, they can predict whether a particular drug will kill tumor cells based on how it affects their growth rates.
