The reason for this scrutiny is the inability of guidelines to address all the uncertainties inherent in clinical practice.

Briefly, the importance of prior laboratory prediction of individual drug response Introduction cannot be overestimated. Drug sensitivity is determined by multiple genes. The complexity of mechanisms involved in drug sensitivity becomes apparent considering that gene expression profiles in response to drug exposure vary considerably among individuals even for the same drug or regimen. Therefore, determination of predictive marker genes for drug sensitivity is urgently needed, which will allow us to predict therapeutic response to drugs.

It is also known that an inflammatory component is present in the microenvironment of most neoplastic tissues. Cancer cure in general is difficult because the initial invasive processes during cancer development remain largely undetected. Cancer is deleterious because of, as stated earlier, the systemic dissemination of the disease and the development of metastasis.

This event is ephemeral because rapidly or eventually (depending on the type of cancer) these cells become invasive.
