Summary of "Molecular screening programs in different countries: what we learned and perspectives."

Precision medicine arised as a new paradigm in oncology in which molecular profiling aims at guiding therapy in oncology. The implementation of precision medicine necessitates setting up molecular tumor boards (MTBs) that coordinate the workflow of tumor samples to efficiently seek for actionable molecular alterations. We review here the main precision medicine initiatives that involve MTBs and decipher challenges that still need to be overcome along with future perspectives for a broader implementation of precision medicine in routine patient care.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Learned expectation that one's responses are independent of reward and, hence, do not predict or control the occurrence of rewards. Learned helplessness derives from a history, experimentally induced or naturally occurring, of having received punishment/aversive stimulation regardless of responses made. Such circumstances result in an impaired ability to learn. Used for human or animal populations. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
