Cancer is a disease that affects millions of people around the world. While there are many treatment options available, targeted therapy is often considered the best option for patients with cancer.
Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that targets specific molecules or genes that are involved in the growth and spread of cancer cells. This type of therapy is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as surgery or chemotherapy.
There are many different types of targeted therapies available, and not all patients will respond to the same treatment. However, a new computer platform called MatchMate is helping to match patients with the most appropriate targeted therapy for their individual case.
MatchMate is a web-based application that uses a patient’s medical information to match them with clinical trials of targeted therapies that are most likely to be effective for their specific type of cancer.
The platform was developed by a team of researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. The team used data from over 4,000 cancer patients to develop the algorithm that powers MatchMate.
MatchMate is currently being used by several cancer centers around the United States, and the team is working on expanding the application to more centers.
Targeted therapy is often the best option for patients with cancer, and MatchMate is a promising new tool that can help patients find the most effective treatment for their individual case.
