THE PILOT STUDY
Initially flagged for just 12 children but expanded to 60 on patient and doctor demand.
In about 8 weeks, patients had their cancer genetically screened and almost 10 per cent of those screened had a change in the diagnosis of their overall cancer type.
A total of 37 per cent received a recommendation for a different therapy. SA HOSPITALS AND RESEARCH INSITUTES TAKING PART
