Breast Cancer Patients with the Breast Cancer Susceptibility Gene Are Poor Candidates for Some Chemotherapy Drugs

The work highlights the new field of pharmacogenomic therapy, which has become increasingly important with the sequencing of the human genome and, it is hoped, will lead to improved cancer therapies.
