PERSONALISED CANCER TESTING: AVAILABLE TESTS
Escapee cancer cells in the blood, or 'CTCs' as they are known, can be found by a simple blood test. A CTC Count test finds existing escapee cancer cells (CTCs) in a blood sample and counts them. Monitoring changes in cancer activity over time is made easy with this test... To learn more, please visit our patient or practitioner information page.
Some CTCs can hide in the blood stream for months or years before activating and forming a second tumour. Some CTCs may even resist treatment. This test analyses how a person's CTCs respond when exposed to a recommended chemotherapy regimen or botanical treatment. To learn more, please visit our patient or practitioner information page.
Biomarker analysis can be used to identify receptors that are targets for treatment, to assess the potential for cancer spread or to assist in diagnosis. The identification of certain receptors on a person's CTCs may help practitioners design personalised treatment strategies... To learn more, please visit our patient or practitioner information page.
Tumour Sphere Units tests to see if a person's CTCs can multiply to form microscopic clusters, called Tumour Sphere Units, in the laboratory. CTCs that can form clusters have stem-cell qualities, rendering them more resistant to treatment and capable of forming a second tumour, called a metastasis. To learn more, please visit our patient or practitioner information page.
Every tumour cell is affected by modifcations of its DNA – and these modifications are different for each patient. OncoDNA has developed analyses which are used to study all the characteristics of a person's tumour. This means we can provide your Oncologist with a list of the treatments most suitable for you and therefore the most effective to fight your cancer. To learn more, please visit the OncoDNA website
Biological age: We analyze your biological age by innovatively using the combination of epigenetic and telomere markers in a drop of blood.
Health + Prevention: An individualized concept for your healthy aging. For the first time, we analyze the combination of epigenetic and telomere markers together with inflammation and DNA stability markers from a drop of blood.
Metabolic health: HealthBioCare analyses as first company not only genetic but also epigenetic characteristics which change due to nutrition and life style. The use of these epigenetic markers allows to monitore results of improved nutrition and lifestyle. The results of the analysis give also advice for your recommended way of sport, skin care and health prevention. For more information, please visit the Healthbiocare website
