ABSTRACT
The article discusses recent developments in personalized medicine, an approach that is hoped to radically change cancer treatment. It notes that despite the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval of several new drugs with companion diagnostics, the new targeted therapies do not seem to live up to their promise. According to the author, questions about whether more targeted therapies will, in fact, bend the cost curve and improve outcomes for patients with cancer remain unanswered.
