Cancer treatment continually improves as new drugs seek to exploit consistent differences between cancer cells and normal cells, a process greatly aided by our increasing understanding of patient and cancer genetics, and of the complex interactions between cancers and the body’s immune system.

This information is increasingly allowing the development by clinicians of personalised therapies for individuals. Patients also have vital active roles to play, including donating tissue samples for research and in working with researchers to develop better family and whānau support.
