Dr. Brufsky Discusses Future Research into Bisphosphonates
Adam M. Brufsky, MD, PhD, professor of medicine, associate chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of Pittsburgh, discusses future research into bisphosphonates.
The cancer cell itself is incredibly complex, Brufsky says. Much work has been done to understand cancer cells with next-generation sequencing and RNA-based assays.
Drugs like bisphosphonates and denosumab affect the host greatly. Research needs to be conducted focused on the genomics of the host and the factors that allow metastatic disease to come about from the host’s perspective.
