Crispr Cas 9/TAPUR -What They Mean For the Future For Patients
What is CRISPR-CAS 9?
The CRISPR-CAS 9 system is a unique tool that allows scientists to make precise, targeted changes to the genome by deleting, replacing or inserting parts to specific locations in the DNA sequence.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER – BE EMPOWERED!
How It Works:
THE TAPUR STUDY (www.tapur.org):
- learn whether approved drugs might work against different cancers
- find out how genomic or molecular tests are used to care for people with advanced cancer
- use the study results to help inform future studies and aid in the care of people with cancer
- provide patients with access to therapies which may benefit them
