The Cancer Genome Institute makes Fox Chase one of the first cancer centers in the nation to offer a powerful new diagnostic test for advanced cancers.
Through next-generation DNA sequencing, tumor-specific genetic alterations now can potentially be matched to precision drugs.
How it works:
- We use leading-edge technologies to compare the genetic profile of an individual's tumor against a panel of 45 cancer-related genes.
- Patients with advanced cancers can elect to have their tumors examined for these genetic alterations, with the potential of being matched to established or experimental targeted therapies directed at the altered gene.
