CancerPOP is a service that can help you when standard-of-care treatments no longer work, or at the beginning of your diagnosis and difficult journey. You decide when you need us. We are here for you.
The POP in CancerPOP is our Precision Oncology Program®, recognized by the Harvard Business School Precision Medicine Innovation Prize, which is available to cancer patients around the world*. The Precision Oncology Program pairs next-generation DNA sequencing with powerful computer technology to arm you and your doctors with personalized treatment information, provide medical counseling, and empower you do to everything you can to fight the disease.
Our Precision Oncology Program® can:
- predict how your cancer will respond to standard-of-care drugs
- identify drug combinations for treatment
- identify proteins within your cancer cell that explain why a drug works or will not work for you.
HOW IT WORKS
Our CancerPOP Patient Advocate walks you and your caregivers through our step-by-step process to arm you with the information you need now.
CancerPOP uses your specific DNA and an innovative computer program to map many gene variations with many drug treatment options. The computer modeling allows CancerPOP to simulate digital drug treatment options, including combined treatments. This digital, “individual, personal clinical trial” predicts which therapies will be more effective based on your genetics.
We examine your personal pharmacogenomics -- the study of how genes affect a person’s response to specific drugs. Not only will you learn about which therapies will be safe and effective, you will learn what is right for you based on your genetics.
We work one-on-one with you and your caregiver to deliver your desired level of personalized service.
Your CancerPOP team understands the importance of timing and getting answers you need as soon as possible. The Precision Oncology Program takes two weeks if prior genetic testing has been completed and the data is available*, or five to six weeks if you plan to have thorough genetic testing done in our CLIA Certified labs.
