Introducing Molecular Profile Testing
Life-Saving, Next Generation Cancer Treatment
What if the very tumor growing inside your body held the secret of how best to fight it? It’s possible.
So that a patient with breast cancer could avoid unnecessary chemotherapy. So that a patient with lung cancer didn’t go down the wrong path of treatment. So that a patient with cancer who is running out of options may find a new option. Molecular Profile Testing uses cells taken through a biopsy of your tumor to identify the specifics of the tumor—and then compares it with similar tumors and the preferred ways of treating that type of tumor.
Who is a candidate for Molecular Profile Testing?
Discuss molecular profile testing with your oncologist if you have recently been diagnosed with any type of cancer or your cancer has not responded to chemotherapy.
