A GAMEPLAN TO ATTACK THE VERY BUILDING BLOCKS OF CANCER
Ground-breaking development in the analysis and understanding of the molecular basis of tumours is the bedrock of exciting field of personalized medicine in cancer care. Close investigation of the molecular mutation is forging new pathways in the way cancer is treated. The ultimate goal of gene mutation analysis is to understand all the moving parts in the equation; mutation occurs as a result of interplay within several proteins. Our specialists study each of the genes involved and the role they play in the mutation process. This level of micro understanding of the mutation process is the genesis of powerful treatment modalities that are customized for very specific cases of cancer.
In personalized medicine, the focus is not where the cancer is but rather on the very building blocks of the cancer. Our specialists extract and delve into a wealth of data that becomes the clinical compass for accurate prognosis.
Decades of advances in basic science, technology, therapeutics, and the understanding of the genetic causes of cancer have coalesced in recent years to make personalized cancer care possible. This knowledge has allowed doctors to transition from a broad-brush approach to an era of Precision Oncology.
THE APCC EDGE IN PRECISE PERSONALZIED CANCER CARE
Molecular profiling is a great catalyst to improve efficacy of systemic therapies. Our expert pathologists and molecular biologists analyse the cancer tissue sample collected for biopsy or the patient's blood sample and perform rigorous molecular biology testing on them. These tests predict the patient’s chance of responding to cancer drugs when administered for treatment. This forms the basis for bespoke treatment plans for individual cases of cancer.
Genetic testing is a sophisticated testing algorithm that identifies changes in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. These tests are typically one of the following three kinds :
At APCC we use genetic testing as a vital precursor to initiative personalized cancer care. After the initial cancer diagnosis, our specialists conduct state-of-the-art tests on the cancer cells to look for certain gene changes. The results of these investigation reveal the molecular make-up of the tumour and help identify the optimal treatment roadmap.
