Precision Medicine Requires Precision Diagnostics
Standard approaches can lack the needed specificity and selectivity required to effectively neutralize cancer and may result in toxicity. Personalized care requires precision medicine and precision medicine requires a better analysis of tumor biology and proteins.
We use mass spectrometry, to precisely measure tumor protein expression to anticipate patient response or nonresponse to available approved and clinical trial therapies.
Mass spectrometry has been used to measure things like Vitamin D in the past and is now finding utility expanding to other clinical fields like proteomics.
Variation in tumor biology is thought to be a major reason therapeutic response and prognosis differ significantly from patient to patient. No two tumors are similar at genotypic and phenotypic level, and the same type of cancer shows different biomarkers from patient to patient. Traditional, standard approaches to anticancer therapy can lack the needed specificity and selectivity required to effectively neutralize some cancers and may result in unwanted toxicities.
We believe that mass spectrometry-based platforms can become part of a rational process to rapidly test and qualify large number of candidate biomarkers to identify the few that stand a chance for further development and validation and help you get to market faster.
All your oncology drugs act on a protein or are influenced by a protein. Tumor biology is complex and results in a great variation in proteins and metabolites found in them. Understanding what specific proteins constitute a tumor and in what quantities is critical to prescribing the most effective therapeutic agent for cancer treatment. Precision medicine requires precision diagnostics.
