CANCER care on the NHS is set to be revolutionised thanks to a major gene study.
Patients will get fast-tracked on to life-saving treatments targeting their individual cancer thanks to the breakthrough.
Experts claim the findings may soon allow medics to offer patients more personalised therapies tailored to their cancer’s genetic make-up.
Professor Serena Nik-Zainal, of Cambridge University, said: “It’s revolutionary.
“It will change the way we treat cancer over the next five to ten years.
“It is a landmark study.
“Thanks to our findings we now have a tool that can be used across the NHS immediately.”
She added: ““Our expectation would be that you can shorten the time for patients to get the best treatment possible, and that they will respond quicker, faster and better.”
