The hallmarks of cancer are determined by cancer-associated gene expression pattern that is determined by cancer-associated chromatin configuration (CACC). Using non-carcinogenic genotoxic drugs (NCGDs) to alter CACC could change cancer-associated gene expression pattern, which in turn, might cause disappearance of some or whole hallmarks of cancer and as a result, cancer cells could be killed by either apoptosis or immune destruction. Therefore, cancer could be prevented and treated by administ...

Advancements in technology such as proteomics, genomics have led to the concept of personalized medicine wherein the integration of biomarkers into clinic directs cancer therapeutics. Traditional staging has a stochastic element which can only predict the outcome without actual consideration of intrapatient heterogeneity. In this review, we will look at the biomarkers that prove to be valuable tools for the personalization of cancer therapeutics among lung and breast cancer patients.
