GPS Cancer™: Personalized Molecular Decision Support for Cancer Therapy Before Treatment Begins
GPS Cancer is a precise and comprehensive molecular profile, integrating tumor-normal sequencing of DNA (whole genome/exome) with RNA sequencing.
GPS Cancer, run in CLIA-certified CAP-accredited laboratories, provides oncologists with a precise and comprehensive molecular profile of a patient’s cancer to inform personalized treatment strategies before treatment begins. GPS Cancer results may inform use of commonly used targeted therapies, chemotherapies, and immunotherapies.
Addressing the question:
GPS Cancer® report:
- Includes whole genome or whole exome sequencing of 20,000 genes and 3 billion base pairs
- Incorporates whole transcriptome sequencing of over 200,000 RNA transcripts
- Compares a patient’s tumor genome to their normal genome
The GPS Cancer® test results are available to the ordering physician within 21 days (typical) from receipt of tissue in a concise format. The GPS Cancer report lists potential treatment options (if applicable), including FDA-approved targeted therapies and active clinical trials with potential for clinical benefit, and/or available therapies to which the cancer may be resistant. The GPS Cancer report does not recommend treatments, and it is the responsibility of the treating physician to develop a personalized treatment plan after discussing available treatment options and the potential risks associated with each treatment option with the patient.
