CONCLUSIONS Despite the development of better prognostic markers, which is a large component of the current cancer genomics revolution, there is a need to predict which patients will respond to therapy. The ability to use an effective second- or third-line therapy and sidestep an ineffective, potentially toxic first-line therapy would greatly improve the care of 18 PART I: BASIC CONCEPTS cancer patients, especially those with advanced cancers and a predicted rapid course. Thus, it is entirely possible to envision in the near future a scenario in which therapeutic decisions are determined primarily not by the histologic assessment of the tumor but, rather, by its molecular signature.
