DNA Molecular Testing and Personalized Medicine – Part 2

Another genetic molecular technology that has evolved tremendously is real time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). When accompanied by reverse transcription prior to PCR (RT-PCR), it has also allowed rapid multiple gene analysis useful for cancer staging such as OncotypeDx. This platform analyzes RNA for 21 genes with RT-PCR to stratify breast cancer patients according to…
