Genetic Tumor Tissue Studies for Targeted Therapy

For a number of malignant tumors, it is possible to choose a targeted therapy directly affecting the tumor cells. To decide on prescribing such therapy, the oncogenetics laboratory analyzes tumor tissue for specific genetic variants.
The identification of genetic variants makes it possible to:

  • specify the diagnosis and prognosis of a disease,
  • predict the efficiency of treatment with targeted drugs,
  • monitor the targeted therapy efficiency.
