Why undergoing this examination?

Substantial advances have been made in the understanding and treatment of cancer in recent years. One of these advances was the appearance of molecular subsets that receive specific treatments due to their molecular characteristics. With these advances, many challenges have arisen: The main one is to obtain the correct genotyping of the tumor samples, since changes have been described that can condition the treatment of the patients, favoring it considerably. This is the case of the EGFR gene in lung cancer or the BRAF gene in melanoma.

What is this exam?

The Tumor Mutation Profile test analyzes 223 changes in tumor DNA in more than 50 tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes. The mutations included were related to all types of tumors, so their prescription is valid for any type of solid tumor.

For whom is it indicated?

Indicated for patients with any type of solid tumor who wishes to perform a complete molecular study, but especially for:
• Aggressive, refractory or rare tumors.
• Tumors of unknown origin, in order to personalize the treatment.
• Cases in which you want to optimize the material and time to obtain results.
• Patients who have exhausted all possibilities for clinical treatment and are eligible to participate in Phase I clinical trials.

Technology

Next generation sequencing (NGS)
