Fox Chase Cancer Center Announces Offering of New Clinical Test CancerCode-45(TM)
Jan 7 13
Fox Chase Cancer Center offering patients with advanced cancer a cutting-edge clinical test that will provide them with a unique blueprint of their cancer genes. The new clinical test, known as CancerCode-45(TM), evaluates an individual's tumor for genetic alterations in a select group of 45 genes and gives physicians the opportunity to look at the alterations and be even more precise when choosing a course of treatment. The test is being offered through the Cancer Genome Institute at Fox Chase one of only a few centers in the nation to offer such pioneering technology in cancer molecular diagnostics. Using leading-edge technology, physicians and scientists at Fox Chase are able to perform the CancerCode-45 test and analyze the genetic information in the DNA of a patient's tumor to find changes that are crucial to supporting their cancer. This genetic analysis will examine multiple alterations in 45 cancer-related genes and provide a report to the patient's treating physician. Prior to the CancerCode-45 test being performed, patients will need to see a Fox Chase physician to provide information about their background, medical history, current medications, and ability to perform daily activities. In addition, the physician will need to take a blood sample and a sample of the tumor (which can come from a previous surgery or biopsy that the patient might have had). It takes about 20 working days to get each patient's test results.
