It was featured as one of “7 consumer, big data healthcare apps that you should know about” by MedCity News, and it was featured in the NYT article by Anne Eisenberg, “Variations on a gene, and tools to find them.” Genetically informed cancer medicine is becoming the next standard of care. Evidence regarding the clinical significance of tumor gene mutations for predicting response to cancer treatments is evolving at a rate that outpaces traditional approaches to knowledge dissemination. To enable this promising approach, Dr. William Pao and Dr. Mia Levy of Vanderbilt University launched My Cancer Genome (MCG) in January 2011 as the nation's first precision cancer medicine knowledge resource. MCG provides up-to-date information on mutation-specific treatments and clinical trials. As of April 2014, content covers 400 mutations in 19 cancer types. Physicians and physician–scientists from 22 institutions in 10 countries contribute content to MCG. My Cancer Genome includes a clinical trial search covering more than 37,000 cancer clinical trials, annotated with information about more than 500 cancer-related genes. My Cancer Genome also houses the DIRECT database, which provides information on outcomes of patients with EGFR mutations in lung cancer. Finally, My Cancer Genome houses a list of targeted therapeutics, either FDA approved or in clinical development.
