Computer Program Predicts Tumor Response to Therapy

A multidisciplinary team of Johns Hopkins researchers created a new computer program that can strongly predict a patient’s response to a particular immunotherapy drug for melanoma. The program, AstroPath, is based on a previously developed algorithm that analyzed millions of telescope images to create a precise digital map of the universe. The team’s big data approach could potentially provide personalized, therapeutic guidance for many cancers. Read more here.
