Research Focus

Reduced DNA repair capacity resulting from genetic polymorphisms of various DNA repair genes has been shown in clinincal research to be associated with improved survival with platinum-based chemotherapy. Reduced efficacy of the XRCC3 protein, a consequence of the polymorphic variant, may result in impaired ability to repair cisplatin DNA damage.
