For patients and medical professionals

 

The more you know about your cancer, the best chance your physicians have of finding a cure.

The changes in your genes that caused your cancer make your cancer unique, and so the best medicine for you is one that focuses on your genetic profile.

Here we have gathered information to help you understand your cancer and how best to cure it. Information about cancer as a disease, the different types of cancer, tests to analyze and diagnose cancer, and care and treatment.

Understanding your cancer diagnosis

Cancer is the name given to the disease that is caused when cells start to divide uncontrollably and spread into surrounding tissues. Your cancer cells are related to your normal cells, but they have some genetic changes (sometimes called variants, mutations, or biomarkers) in their DNA, compared to the DNA of your healthy cells. Actually, every human has cells that have the potential to become cancerous, but in healthy people they don’t grow uncontrollably. Since cancer cells are related to your unique normal cells, no two cancers are the same. Although cancer diseases are often named after the organ that is the primary site, cancer is not necessarily an organ-specific disease. You may have the same cancer disease as another patient but need a different medicine that targets your unique genetic variants.

How is cancer diagnosed?

Cancer is a complex disease. Whether you develop cancer is defined by your unique genetic variants – this may be the cause of around 60% of cancers – but also by your living environment, your lifestyle, and an element of chance.

How is cancer treated?

Thanks to scientific research, a lot of biomedical knowledge is available about how variants in your genes affect whether cancer medicine is effective, ineffective, or toxic for specific patients.

The goal of your cancer medication is to stop the cancer cells growing. The medication (a chemical compound) has an effect on the cell, this is a compound-protein interaction mechanism.

Cancer biomarkers and cancer drugs

Biomarkers can be useful in determining the aggressiveness of an identified cancer as well as its likelihood of responding to a given treatment. Read the latest information on biomarkers known for your disease and what they tell us about which drugs are the best to treat it.
