Match Your Cancer with the Right Targeted Therapy
Oncofocus® – the world’s most comprehensive precision oncology test to identify the right drug for a person’s cancer to increase treatment success.
It works by sequencing the DNA and RNA of an individual’s tumour extracted from the histology sample used for diagnosis.
The sequencing of DNA and RNA identifies the genetic mutations specific to the person’s individual tumour and generates a personalised genetic profile.
Oncofocus® targets 505 genes and incorporates the most up to date genomic information linked to over 700 anti-cancer targeted therapies.
Oncofocus is a precision oncology test that gives a comprehensive picture of actionable mutations to provide your doctors with a detailed molecular blueprint to optimise therapy choices.
The Oncofocus test is performed on the biopsy sample which was taken to make your initial cancer diagnosis.
Oncofocus Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) detects genetic mutations across the major genes relevant to all tumour types.
What are targeted therapies
Targeted therapies are new drugs that kill cancer cells but do not affect healthy cells, unlike chemotherapy which kills both cancer cells and healthy cells.
Targeted cancer therapies are the cornerstone of personalized medicine, a form of medicine that uses information about a person’s DNA profile to treat cancer.
EVERY PERSON’S CANCER IS UNIQUE
This is due to the different types of cancer DNA mutations. A wide range of targeted drugs have been developed (764) against each of these different types of DNA mutation.
Cancer Screening Tests
If you would like to find out whether you may be at high risk of developing certain cancers, our screening tests can offer you the answer. Our tests can offer you peace of mind, or help you act early against future illness.
Prostate Cancer Screening
Prostatefocus is a simple and easy genetic screening test that identifies men at high risk of developing prostate cancer.
Patients who test positive with the Prostatefocus screening test can benefit from increased surveillance and preventative steps to better manage their risk for cancer.
Accurate Genetic Test
To identify the presence of faulty genes known to cause increased risk.
