A research study led by physicians at Allegheny General Hospital found that a certain genetic variation will predict whether women at high risk for breast cancer will respond to the preventive drugs tamoxifen and raloxifene. The findings from the study of more than 600 high-risk women are a step forward toward a time when all cancer care is tailored to a patient's individual genetics, said Dr. Thomas Julian, Director of Breast Surgical Oncology at Allegheny General, in an interview with KDKA-TV.
