Jun 3 First Friday Bioscience – Personalized Cancer Therapy…

Full Title: Personalized Cancer Therapy – How one test could identify more effective treatment possibilities

Speaker: Gitte Pederson, CEO, Genomic Expression

Host: Complya Consulting


Genomic Expression is pioneering use of RNA sequencing to identify the best drug for the patient and the best patient for the drug.

Sequencing has enabled a paradigm shift away from looking at colored tumor cells in a microscope, to define the cancer by its genetic alterations. Cancer is no longer mainly defined by tissue of origin.
In many cases the same genetic alteration can be driving breast cancer in one patient, and lung cancer in another, opening up for many more treatment options.

Genetic testing using RNA sequencing, opens up for treating with new types of drugs that target these genetic changes. Often the test can identify a less toxic and more effective targeted treatment with less side effects.
