GPS Cancer™ Helps Personalize Cancer Treatment for Patients in Sarasota, FL & Across the Country

Cancer Treatment Sarasota FLExciting developments in molecular testing are improving the way oncologists determine what therapies may be best for each individual patient. With the assistance of GPS Cancer™, physicians in Sarasota, Florida, and across the country can better personalize treatment plans and potentially improve patient outcomes.

GPS Cancer™ is an innovative method of molecular testing from NantHealth that carefully compares a patient’s tumor genome against his or her healthy tissue to determine the most appropriate course of treatment shortly after diagnosis. In summary, researchers will now be able to identify the number of protein biomarkers at a very low quantitative level at attomoles per microgram in cancerous cells. These biomarkers indicate how well a patient may respond to a variety of treatment approaches, including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormonal therapy
  • Targeted therapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Monoclonal antibody therapy

A comprehensive molecular profile of a tumor can be made available to a patient’s oncologist within 21 days of tissue receipt. This testing is performed in CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited laboratories.
