"We had great success with CTOAM for my husband, Greg’s melanoma. Greg has followed CTOAM’s recommendations and is now over 5 years cancer free!"
Cancer is caused by certain changes in your genes, called genetic mutations. We now know hundreds of genetic mutations that cause cancer – and, happily, there are now drug therapies for almost all of them! Your cancer treatment should target your specific gene mutations. This is what targeted therapy does.
Standard chemo is designed to kill ALL the rapidly-reproducing cells in your body – it does not know the difference between cancer cells and healthy hair or skin cells. It simply kills them all. This is very harmful to your overall health.
Targeted treatment, on the other hand, only kills the cells with cancer. And it leaves your healthy cells alone to flourish and help you heal.
In order to find out what targeted treatment will work for your cancer, you need to get your genes tested. Genetic testing shows us what your specific gene mutations are. This allows us the match them to a targeted treatment that’s been proven to kill your exact mutation(s).
Precision genetic testing and targeted treatment give you much higher survival rates than standard cancer care. Plus a higher quality of life and better health overall.
Your chances of progression-free survival are greatly improved with targeted treatments and Precision Oncology. Many peer-review studies prove this. The same is true for tumour shrinkage rates.
Precision Oncology approaches cancer treatment from several different angles. Advanced diagnostic tools, detailed genomic tests, and targeted therapies all work in harmony. Together, they create the most precise diagnosis and treatment plan for your specific form of cancer.
"Precision medicine is not the future of cancer care – it is the present."
"Precision oncology is the evolving understanding of how cancers develop on a genomic level and our ability to develop drugs that hone in on those targets – ultimately leading to better patient outcomes."
"Personalised medicine can be described as: The right medicine for the right patient at the right time."
