Get The Most Accurate Cancer Tests and Treatments
After receiving a diagnosis of cancer, many patients don’t understand what’s going on in their body. Choosing a treatment is often confusing and stressful, and based on insufficient information. This is because standard cancer care is still using tests and treatments that are based largely on informed guesswork – and not the latest medical advancements in cancer research.
- Standard cancer care is failing patients:
Cancer treatments fail because most people only have access to standard treatment options. These involve non-precise tests like ultrasounds, which have a high inaccuracy rate of locating cancer tumours. Standard care also uses outdated treatments, such as chemotherapy. Standard chemo kill all cells in the body, which creates further complications and increases the chance of recurrence.
- CTOAM offers patients access to better cancer treatment:
Happily, there is a superior form of cancer treatment than what standard care offers: precision oncology (aka personalized cancer medicine). Today, there are many scientifically established tests, treatments, and supplements that are known to have a positive impact on the treatment of cancer. In other words, there are a variety of approaches that can slow or stop tumour growth with greater precision – and with fewer and less severe side effects – than current standard cancer treatment.
Accessing Affordable Personalized Onco-Genomics
However, these life-saving practices are not reaching patients because they don’t make their way to the oncologists and treatment teams on the front lines. North American mainstream health care systems do not have the time or financial budget to facilitate access to these new treatments. So, the doctors working inside these systems continue to use old approaches.
- Where is precision oncology offered?
Precision oncology services are more readily available in the US and Europe than in Canada. Still, personalized cancer treatment remains the exception, no matter where you are. And in the US, accessing these services can cost, on average, a minimum of $50,000 (USD) out-of-pocket, through companies like the Mayo Clinic.
- How to access better cancer treatment:
As one of Canada’s only (if not the only) private companies offering precision oncology services, CTOAM offers access to the same services as both the Mayo Clinic and MD Anderson at a fraction of the cost: liquid biopsies, genetic testing, advanced imaging, targeted therapies, advocacy, and personalized cancer research. And our specialists can sometimes help you get most, if not all, expenses covered through your insurance.
Get Personalized Cancer Medicine Services From Anywhere in the World
Each day new technologies emerge, new studies are conducted, and new drugs come on the scene. As a Canadian-based private company, CTOAM ensures that clients have access to the most advanced genetic testing and targeted therapies that personalized cancer medicine has available today.
