Molecular Cancer Profiling

You are unique and so is your cancer. Target your cancer precisely.

Precision Oncology is the exclusive distributor for Caris Molecular Intelligence® (CMI) in Australia and New Zealand. We specialise in multiplatform tumour molecular profiling, or in other words, testing a tumour’s unique molecular makeup (DNA, RNA and proteins) to identify which treatments would or would not be most effective in treating that person’s specific cancer.

This treatment method is what is known as a ‘personalised medicine’ approach. Rather than simply using the standard treatment which is normally prescribed for a cancer of that type, tumour profiling is used to identify that tumour’s specific cancer biomarkers (or targets). Multiple molecular testing technologies are used including Immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ Hybridization, 592-gene Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), Sanger Sequencing, Pyro Sequencing and Fragment Analysis to detect and analyse biomarkers. The tumour’s information is then compared with an exhaustive review of literature from thousands of the world’s leading cancer researchers, matching biomarkers to the treatments with the most clinical benefit.

A fully referenced comprehensive report detailing the tumour analysis and clinical associations is sent to the oncologist who then develops an individualised treatment plan. This individual approach means that you can also avoid treatments which may routinely be used for a cancer of that type, but which profiling has shown will have limited benefit in your specific case.

Patients share their stories

Breast Cancer: Sandy’s story

• Sandy’s cancer, first diagnosed in 1992, recurred in 2002 in her liver, bone and lungs.
• Standard therapies were no longer working, so she tried tumour profiling, to identify personalised medicine.
• Anti-cancer drugs identified through molecular profiling, have managed her cancer and given her the time to experience her children’s graduations, marriages and birth of grandchildren.

Kidney Cancer: Doug’s story

• Doug was given one year to live when first diagnosed with cancer
• He had molecular profiling of his cancer’s DNA, RNA and proteins performed with Caris
• Years later, he’s “doing well”, watching his grandchildren grow up.
