Thank you for sharing this Lillie. Very interesting.

This is still quite new, and is actually different than what I was asking. These are 'functional' tests to look for activity that might kill the cancer cells.

I am wondering whether people have had genetic tests to look at what mutations were present in their cancer cells. Sometimes these results can have an impact on what chemos or targeted therapies may work against the tumors as well. And they can also provide additional information that recent research suggests may also tell you about prognosis.
