GPS Cancer proﬁle results give oncologists insights into cancer therapies that may have potential beneﬁt, as well as therapies to which the cancer may be resistant. Oncologists may choose to use this information to develop targeted treatment plans based on the unique characteristics of each patient’s cancer.
With Precision Insights, your doctor can know more about your tumor than ever before and use this information to make personalized treatment decisions.
You should talk with your physician about molecular profiling and GPS Cancer, or contact us to determine whether GPS Cancer is appropriate for your type of cancer.
How It Works
The process starts when you and your doctor decide that GPS Cancer profiling is right for you.
Your doctor will send your tissue and blood samples to the GPS Cancer lab for testing.
GPS Cancer Profiling
Our lab analyzes the DNA and RNA in your tumor, then sends the results to your doctor within approximately 21 days.
Your doctor will review your GPS Cancer results with you and discuss potential treatment options.
GPS Cancer Profiling includes:
- DNA Sequencing – Pinpoints genomic alterations among the thousands of genes present in an individual tumor cell.
- Tumor-normal Sequencing – Identifies which gene changes are found only in the tumor and not in healthy cells, since these may be optimal targets for cancer therapies.
- RNA Sequencing – Identifies which gene changes are important, therefore informing which drugs are likely or unlikely to provide benefit.
Our GPS Care Center is staffed with trained GPS Nurse Navigators to support you at any time. Financial support may also be available through our NantAccess Program.
