I have written quite a bit on the subject of Molecular Profiling only to find out that the glossary of terms around this subject are many and varied. Having now spent several hours researching this subject at the National Cancer Institute perhaps their label of Molecular Diagnostics is most common. To that end take a look at the following slide which clarifies the process associated with this revolutionary technique that represents a very advanced set of tools to diagnose and treat disease.
Another piece of exciting news on this subject hit the front page of AARPBulletintoday and is a must read. This could be the beginning of a “Ground Swell” of support directed at insurance companies and those suffering from breast cancer who need to take notice. http://bulletin.aarp.org/yourhealth/diseases/articles/good_news_about_cancer1.html
