The Power of Personalized Medicine
Cancer Genetics, Inc. (CGI) is an oncology-focused diagnostics company. We develop tests that can help doctors diagnose cancers and help them select the best treatment for each patient. Our laboratories provide testing for major cancer centers, oncology clinics, and pharmaceutical companies.
Personalized medicine aims to provide each individual patient with the therapy they are most likely to respond to. By assessing each patient and their tumor’s unique genetic information, we can help doctors provide the most accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment selection available.
Today only 25% of initial cancer treatments are successful. This is in part due to the traditional approach to treatment, which has tended to give each patient with the same disease the same treatment. Because personalized medicine takes into account each tumor’s and each individual’s unique genetic makeup, we are able to provide more individualized treatment and help improve success rates in cancer treatment.
Our groundbreaking work in the area of genetics-based testing is good news for patients because it makes personalized medicine possible. Every person is different and every cancer is different. Genetic-based testing identifies a person’s cancer at a molecular level. With that kind of precise information, diagnosis is more specific and your doctor can recommend a treatment plan that is personalized to your needs.
Talk to your doctor to see if genetic-based testing is right for you. And if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, connect with networks, services and research that can support, inform and guide you.
