NGS testing is widely used to find genetic changes in the tumors to look for suitable targeted drugs in cancer treatment. Further newer generation of drugs such as antibody drugs conjugate (ADC) and immune drugs can be used to help the patients when cancer relapse develops due to drug resistance to the first generation of drugs. We are anticipating cancer diseases can be converted into chronic diseases with patients having long term survival in the future.
