GATC Biotech has signed a commercial agreement with Molecular Health to market and support Molecular Health’s state-of-the-art system for tumour profiling. Under this agreement, GATC Biotech will make the company’s analytical software, TreatmentMAP, available to patients worldwide.
Every cancer is unique, which is why cancer patients respond differently to cancer treatments. Scientific discoveries and technological breakthroughs can provide oncologists with more in-depth information about individual tumour biology, helping to identify potentially beneficial therapeutic agents based on the molecular makeup of the individual tumour. Based on the patient’s molecular and clinical data, the extensive biomedical data warehouse of Molecular Health and the TreatmentMAP analytical software provide physicians with detailed, actionable information. This way, it will be possible to select the best suitable treatment to an individual tumour profile. TreatmentMAP is the first registered medical device of its kind in Europe for personalized cancer medicine. In the United States, it is run as an end-to-end laboratory test that includes next-generation sequencing (NGS).
