A team co-led by Sangeeta Bhatia, researcher at Ludwig MIT, engineered strains of Salmonella bacteria to produce three types of cancer-killing drugs. The Atlantic reported on their findings, which show that, when used in combination with chemotherapy, the engineered bacteria can induce dramatic regressions of aggressive colon tumors.

GEN
Ludwig scientists speak about a blood-based screening test they’re developing to measure the a patient's risk of colon cancer recurrence after surgery and determine whether subsequent chemotherapy is advisable. "This study shows that when we find tumor DNA circulating in the blood of cancer patients, recurrence is very likely," says Nickolas Papadopoulos of Ludwig Johns Hopkins.

Cancer Research UK
Ludwig scientists have shown that fragments of tumor DNA circulating in the blood can be used to better gauge the risk of colorectal cancer recurrence and the necessity of chemotherapy following surgery. Cancer Research UK reports that these findings could one day help doctors to better monitor and tailor treatments for their patients.
