Genomic Testing

clientuploads/_photos/Kelli/benchtop.jpgGenomic testing is available at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center.  The Illumina MySeq machine looks at gene changes that occur in a patient’s cancer cells so physicians can determine if there is a drug targeted specifically to help that patient. By knowing exactly which gene is driving the cancer growth and spread, the treating physician can target that gene.

The Illumina MySeq at Feist-Weiller is the only one in the area.  Additionally, FWCC belongs to a unique network offering nationwide DNA testing services which expands the comparison options. A molecular Tumor Board, which is a meeting for treating physicians and basic scientists, discuss options to individualize patient cancer care.
