IDENTIFYING
ALTERNATIVES TO
STANDARD TREATMENTS

ConnectGene will explore whether you are suitable for immune, targeted, or gene therapy, in addition to examining the efficacy of standard treatment protocols.

IMMUNE, TARGETED & GENE-THERAPY
CANCER TREATMENT OPTIONS

Immune, targeted or gene therapies are now available for some cancers where chemotherapy or radiation were the only options. In fact, some people who might not be able to tolerate chemotherapy may be better served by these modern approaches to cancer treatment.

In clinical trials, some cancers respond very well to these therapies, especially when they are chosen to match genetic changes in the particular cancer. There are, of course, risks and side effects with any treatment.

At ConnectGene, you will work with our oncology specialist to understand these treatment options and determine the right course of treatment for you.

Genomic testing
Capabilities

ConnectGene works with our genomics testing and pathology partners to use next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, amongst other techniques, to evaluate your and your cancer’s genomic profiles.

By looking at the DNA, RNA and protein of your tumour, we can identify markers that are unique to your cancer, and find targeted solutions which may provide a breakthrough in the treatment of your cancer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS

ConnectGene can provide a crucial second opinion in your cancer care. A second opinion may assist in the decision-making process, help you further understand your current treatment, as well as provide alternative treatment options.

Seeking a second opinion from another doctor or specialist is common. Your original doctor or another doctor can provide a referral, and you may ask for your medical history to be provided to the second opinion doctor.

ConnectGene’s approach ensures that your cancer treatment is personalised to you. Our oncology specialists cover standard protocol treatments, as well as emerging treatments being provided through clinical trials.

Genomic testing offers a more personalised approach to cancer treatment, giving you the best chance of survival. By looking at the DNA of your tumour, we can identify mutations that are unique to your cancer and find targeted solutions which may help fix them.

Clinical trials of over 70,000 patients have shown that genomic profiling of tumours is the most effective way to improve outcomes, especially regarding combating of toxic effects across cancers.

Investing in genomic testing to obtain a complete diagnosis and to select appropriate therapy is small compared with the potential cost of ill-chosen treatments.

If recommended by our specialist oncologist, performing genomic testing after treatment is still useful as it can provide alternative treatment options and drug targets, discover resistance mutations that may be causing progression of the disease, and enable you to track your response to treatment.

ConnectGene’s oncology specialist will seek to understand your medical history and examine and review any scans or test results that you can provide. Together, you will discuss possible treatment plans.

If treatment is recommended, our specialist will explain the procedure, help you understand what it involves, and explain the risks and benefits to you. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions.
