Cancer and
Precision Medicine Explained

Cancer is caused by changes to genes in your body that control how our cells function. To better fight cancer, we believe that you will need to fully understand the genetic changes that lead to cancer. We provide genomic profiling tests to detect cancer as early as possible, determine your risk of cancer, and provide you with a better choice of treatment. This is also known as Precision Medicine.

Select the Right
Cancer Treatment

Every cancer, like every patient, is different. Information about genetic changes that are unique to your individual cancer can help us determine treatments that are appropriate for you. Our blood tests profile your tumor at the molecular level to detect the cancer-driving mutations. We will then match the specific mutations to a suitable targeted therapy or immunotherapy for better treatment outcomes.

Monitor Treatment and Cancer Recurrence

Cancer cells mutate easily to acquire resistance to treatment. Hence, after a period of initial treatment, your treatment may lose its effectiveness. When this happens, the cancer may regrow. Detecting this early and taking the correct action is important. Our blood tests help to monitor treatment response and signs of cancer recurrence.

Genetic Testing

Inherited cancers are cancers that run in the family. Cancer is caused by mutations in our genes. When one gene mutation is passed from one generation to another, inherited cancers can occur. Having these mutations does not mean you will get cancer. However, they increase your risk of cancer. This is one reason why cancer can occur at a younger age, or appear more often in some families.

We can determine your risk of developing cancer in your lifetime using genetic testing. With only a small amount of your blood, our tests can analyze your genes to find out if you or your family are at risk of developing cancer. This will enable your physician to help you manage and reduce your cancer risk.

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling is a process to evaluate and understand a person’s risk of developing cancer based on his/her family history by a certified genetic counselor before and after a genetic test. You may be counseled individually or together with your family members. The counselor will discuss the potential benefits and risks of genetic testing and recommendations on options for cancer prevention.

The results of a genetic test are not always straightforward and having a genetic risk for cancer does not mean you will develop cancer. For example, a woman with a 60% chance of developing cancer may remain free of cancer in her lifetime. Conversely, another woman with a 10% chance of developing breast cancer may still develop cancer in her future.

Genetic counselling allows you to better understand your genetic test results. The genetic counselor will explain the results of the genetic test to you and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Genetic Counseling At A Glance

Pre-Test Counseling

  • Evaluate medical records
  • Evaluate family history
  • Routine physical checkup
  • Order genetic test

Genetic Test

  • 2-3 weeks turnaround time

Post-Test Counseling

  • Evaluate results of the genetic test and risks involved
  • Discuss options open to patients in term of disease management and family planning etc.

What is genomic medicine?

No two people are the same, and neither are their cancers. Patients with the same type of cancer may not respond in the same way to the same treatment. Genomic medicine is a new medical approach that tailor healthcare to each person’s genetic make-up to improve treatment options and patient outcomes.

How does genomic testing work?

Our diagnostic tests are designed to profile cancer at the molecular level to match your cancer to the right treatment. It works by analyzing the DNA in cancer cells from a sample of your tumor to identify the genetic mutations driving its growth. This information will help physicians provide you with more personalized treatment such as targeted drugs based on the specific mutations in your tumor. We also have a test for the early detection of nasopharyngeal cancer before symptoms show. Additionally, our tests can check whether a person is predisposed to cancer by detecting genes commonly associated with increased risk of cancer.

What are the advantages of using genomic testing over traditional tests?

Our diagnostic tests provide a simpler and faster way to detect cancer mutations. All our tests require only one draw of blood compared to tissue biopsy, which requires surgically removing a piece of tissue from the body. The test turnaround time is also shorter with results coming back in days instead of over a week. This allows doctors to make more timely treatment decisions.

What types of cancers do your tests detect?

We specialize in the detection of cancers that are more common in Asia, which has the highest cancer death rates in the world. Our tests can target a broad range of cancers such as breast, colon, lung, pancreatic and nasopharyngeal cancers, among others.

Does the stage of cancer matter for your tests?

Our tests cover screening for early stage cancers to treatment selection for late stage cancers.
