Safe | Accurate | Easy on the Patient
|What||Non-Invasive in vitro Chemosensitivity on Circulating Tumor Associated Cells (C-TACs) to evaluate Response / Resistance to chemotherapy drugs.|
|For Whom||All patients who have been advised chemotherapy at any stage of the disease.|
|Why||The choice of chemotherapy drugs is presently based on statistical probability of efficacy. However, a large number of patients fail on such treatments due to non-specific selection of drugs. Chemo-scale identifies the drugs which have highest probability of response and highest risk of resistance to eliminate trial and error on the patient.|
|How||C-TACs from peripheral blood are isolated and tested in vitro to observe comparative cell death when exposed to calibrated doses of cytotoxic drugs.|
|Sample Type||22 ml peripheral blood (5-6 hours fasting) as per protocol.|
|Turn Around Time||8-10 days|
