Combination Therapies for Personalised Cancer Medicine in drug resistant EGFR mutant lung cancer
This study involves mutagenizing a range of different cell lines with ENU to identify those mutations which engender resistance to targeted treatment. In the last decade we have begun to move towards the use of targeted therapeutics in the clinic, often resulting in dramatic response rates in cancer patients. However, clinical experience has demonstrated time and time again that such responses are invariably followed by the development of drug resistance. Identification of the underlying mechanisms may enable us to reverse such resistance. Traditional methods of modelling this resistance in vitro can lead to a plethora of potential resistance mechanisms that can be difficult to decipher.
