The program provides a larger patient base for rare cancers – 55 percent of all cancer cases in Singapore are captured by the NCCS network. New in 2007 Compassionate Care Protocol Craig Webb, Ph.D., director of VAI’s Program of Translational Medicine, spearheads the Compassionate Care Protocol, a study by VAI and several clinical partners that aims to provide personalized medicine to advanced-stage cancer patients. Using a database developed by Webb’s lab, detailed molecular and genetic data from patients’ tumors helps determine which unique combination of drugs will have the greatest impact on treatment. The study continues in 2008 with the hope of including up to 200 local cancer patients.
