Mayo Clinic: Biomarker that may improve quality of life during treatment for colorectal cancer

... Because the variations occur in genes involved in detoxifying oxaliplatin, the researchers hypothesized that the variations could be used as biological markers -- biomarkers -- that would indicate which patients are most susceptible to oxaliplatin's negative side effects. Their results confirmed this. Using gen...
