"Personalised management is considered as the future of cancer care: medicine aiming at giving patients the best treatment according to their personal medical history, their physiological status, and the molecular characteristics of their tumours."Get Started!
Due to time and budget constraints, current standard oncological practices unfortunately continue to rely heavily on informed guesswork and general chemotherapy and radiation. Imprecise tests (basic blood tests and ultrasounds) are the standard diagnostic practice in Canada at this time, despite the fact that these tests are unable to differentiate a cancerous tumour from a non-cancerous one.
Targets all of the rapidly reproducing cells in your body, including healthy cells like hair cells and immune cells
Has strong side effects (grade 3 and 4)
Only target cells that are carrying cancerous mutations
Are less invasive, and have fewer and less severe side effects (grade 1 and 2)
Ensure that only the cancerous cells are dying, not the healthy ones
We hear so many stories of failed cancer treatments – and of the agonizing experience of chemo – and yet it doesn't have to be this way. Cancer care has evolved far beyond basic blood tests, ultrasound, CT scans, and standard chemotherapy and radiation.
Oftentimes, with standard care, you need to wait anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks – and often longer – just to get your first appointment with an oncologist. And scheduling surgery can easily take just as long.
In other words: if you call us when you are diagnosed with cancer, you will already have a targeted treatment plan (that you can begin right away) by the time you have your first appointment with your oncologist. Our cancer specialists make it easy for your doctor to have all the information and peer-reviewed scientific data they need to feel confident exploring the treatment options our research has identified.
The good news is that medical science has made many advancements since these types of tests and treatments. There now exist:
The bad news is that these tests and treatments are not currently accessible, for the most part, via mainstream health care in North America. In Europe, organizations like ESMO are leading the way to ensure precision oncology becomes integrated into standard health care. And in North America, private companies like CTOAM are stepping up to ensure that the most advanced genomic tests and targeted treatments in the world are accessible to cancer patients who need them now.
In the future, precision oncology will absolutely be the standard in cancer treatment, beyond doubt. It is just a matter of time until mainstream health care has enough budget and time to integrate it.
In the meantime, there is CTOAM.
CTOAM also acts as your personal assistant throughout the entire process of your treatment. Our precision oncology specialists take care of everything for you and stay in constant contact, available to answer any of your questions or concerns. This includes:
The services provided by our research scientists, lab partners, and care team are also offered by the Mayo Clinic in the U.S. at double the price, on average. Likewise, the same services are offered by European cancer treatment centers at a higher cost, plus travel expenses and disruption to your daily life. At CTOAM, our specialists provide these exact same advanced services for you, wherever you are located.
So you can stay home and access the same service at half the cost of those offered elsewhere in the world.
This is a brand new model that CTOAM has created for cancer care in Canada, and it is the future of precision oncology treatment.
And remember that because Canadian privacy laws are so strong (and CTOAM is a Canadian company), all of your medical records and data that we discover remain strictly confidential until you give permission to share them.
In cancer, how fast and how accurately you act can make all the difference between life and death.
We’ve had clients who’d been told by standard medicine that there was nothing more that could be done – that the next step was palliative care. And then they came to CTOAM. After our cancer care specialists used their advanced diagnostic and imaging tests and coordinated a targeted therapy regime with the client’s doctor, the client’s tumours shrunk significantly – to the point where surgery could be performed, and in other cases, no surgery was necessary. They went from palliative care to full recovery, and are still healthy and happy years later. This is the advantage of precision oncology.
It’s a fact: you have a better chance of recovery with precision oncology’s targeted treatment options than with current standard treatment. With personalized cancer research & oncogenomics, CTOAM covers all aspects of your cancer – from its unique genetic heritage to lifestyle and environmental factors that may have influenced its development – to provide you with access to the best possible treatment options for your form of cancer.
Just imagine, within two weeks of becoming a CTOAM client, you can be moving forward with a targeted cancer therapy – one that you know is right for you – and feeling confident that you are doing the very best that you can to beat cancer and get back to enjoying life to the fullest.
