Title : Precision Oncology and Personalised Medicine: Innovative Technology for the Treatment of Colorectal Cancer


Precision oncology plays an essential role for the treatment of solid cancers. Colorectal cancer has emerged as a disease condition where abnormal genetic mutations occur in a group of colorectal cancer patients. Patients with advanced colorectal cancers are often associated with poor survival. Optimising treatment is the major goal for the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer, which can improve overall survival, progression-free survival and patients’ health-related quality of life. Many studies have been conducted to develop innovative technologies of treatment regimens tailored to the mutation profile of individual cancers, with the goal of improving overall health outcomes of patients. This talk will discuss precision medicine in the research domain of colorectal cancer and the effectiveness of innovative technologies for the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer.
