Study: AI might prove helpful against asbestos-linked cancer

“A new international genomics research led by the University of Leicester used artificial intelligence (AI) to study an aggressive form of cancer, which could be helpful in improving patient outcomes.

…New research undertaken by the Leicester Mesothelioma Research Programme has now revealed, using AI analysis of DNA-sequenced mesotheliomas, that they evolve along similar or repeated paths between individuals. These paths predict the aggressiveness and possible therapy of this otherwise incurable cancer.”
