Translating Human Cancer Sequences Into Personalized Porcine Cancer Models

The global incidence of cancer is rapidly rising, and despite an improved understanding of cancer molecular biology, immune landscapes, and advancements in cytotoxic, biologic, and immunologic anti-cancer therapeutics, cancer remains a leading cause of death worldwide. The authors explain that by creating pig models that mirror patients’ genetic profiles, researchers can improve the predictability of treatment outcomes and accelerate progress in cancer research and treatment.
