The rise of Foundation One, with its liquid biopsy and tissue biopsy programs, seems to dominate that headspace, here, these days.

As for running out of chemo options, the immuno chemo approach has far greater extensibility and range available than generally realized. It's primary caveat to get to NED, seems to be to not let the tumor masses and dissemination get overwhelming, and to keep plugging away at locally curative resections despite various "it's inoperable" opinions. Basically, when we removed the largest features, one could see more immunochemo sensitivity return in the blood results. When something changes, like markers or thingies, we hit them harder, nicely
but harder, hopefully in a targeted way.
The primary problem with alternative medicine, is the general failure to systematically target and use potent quantities
of the nicest combinations of human chemistry, and to require chemo compatibility with that rather than vice versa. I have not personally found any MD or ND to do this systematically enough for our results, but I haven't been everywhere either. Mostly by stretching them, one insightful doctor in one subject area, have we been able to get pronounced, measurable results that cumulatively change the outlook.
