London: Scientists have devised a new test that can identify gene defects in cancer patients, which they claim may pave the way for each patient getting "personalised" medicine. An international team, led by Harvard Medical School, says the `Snapshot` test screens patients for mutations in 14key cancer genes at the same time. The test, which examines tissue taken from tumours, gives a result within three weeks.
