Cancer is a very personalized disease which is why conventional oncology treatment following the ‘one size fits all’ method is unable to cure all patients effectively and for this, cancer remains one of the leading causes of death throughout the world as well as one of the incurable diseases, despite the tremendous advancements in medical science.
