Abstract

In this book chapter we report our own experience of mutational analysis in selecting tailored anticancer treatments for solid tumors. Our Department of Advanced Biotechnologies and Bioimaging, IRCCS San Raffaele Pisana, Rome, Italy, routinely performs pharmacogenetic screenings for different genes such a K-ras, BRAF, KIT, PDGFRα, and EGFR on paraffi n-embedded cancer sections. Therefore, the chapter describes the mutational analysis procedures on paraffi n-embedded tumors aimed to predict individual response to anticancer therapy. These molecular diagnostic methodologies may help us in improving the translational impact of genetic information on clinical practice.
