Customized cancer therapy

On the occasion of the Vienna Cancer Day on February 12th, the Medical University of Vienna mentioned the introduction of new substances as well as the increasing personalization of therapies. By introducing targeted therapies, the increasing individualization of therapy was made possible in the sense of “customized” therapies. The constant identification of new target molecules enables an increasing number of patients to undergo so-called personalized therapy” (precision medicine). The pre-requisite for this is evidence of defined mutations in the tumor tissue of the respective patient.

An impressive development can be observed with respect to immunotherapy. “It increasingly offers us the opportunity to provide therapy with a broad spectrum of drugs which can be individually tailored to the specific medical condition of the respective patients”, reported Christoph Zielinski, Head of the Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) of the Medical University of Vienna and Vienna General Hospital and Scientific Director of the Vienna Cancer Center.

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
