Artificial intelligence could improve breast cancer treatment

Using artificial intelligence, researchers have found a way to predict with over 70 percent accuracy a patient’s response to two common chemotherapy medications used to treat breast cancer.Based on personal genetic analysis of their tumours, patients with the same type of cancer can have different responses to the same medication.While some patients will respond well and go into remission, others will develop a resistance to the medication.”Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool for predicting drug outcomes because it looks at the sum of all the interacting genes,” said Peter Rogan, professor at University of Western Ontario in Canada.”If we can use this technology to improve our knowledge of which medications to use, it could improve patient outcomes. The earlier we treat a patient with the most effective medication, the more…
