#PutCancerToTheTest

每种癌症都是独一无二的。让我们这样对待。

#putcancertothetest是罗氏的全球倡议,提高对癌症基因组检测的重要性的认识,并鼓励患者,医生和医疗保健系统中的更多公开讨论。bob投注平台

Why is it so important?癌症基因组测试是一种诊断测试,用于识别癌细胞基因的变化,以确定每个单独的肿瘤的表现和生长。这是可能帮助患者和医生更好地了解它们的治疗选择或临床试验的重要信息。bob投注平台

我们需要谈论癌症基因组测试

尽管癌症基因组检测的重要性,但它仍然没有众所周知或广泛谈论。

由羊科学家委托的2020年全球知名度调查*,肿瘤学家委托,患有癌症和公众的人透露,调查的近一半的癌症患者对术语没有或低于术语基因组测试。bob投注平台该调查还表明,在一些国家,少于20%的患者对其医生进行了关于癌症基因组测试的患者。bob投注平台为此介绍,普通公众调查的成员表示,他们认为癌症基因组检测是寻找每个患者的正确治疗方法的最不重要因素之一1

At Roche, we want to help increase awareness and understanding of cancer genomic testing and the latest advances in cancer care. Cancer is personal. The more patients and doctors understand about an individual’s cancer, the better equipped they are to diagnose and treat it.

Cancer is not one disease

随着科学技术的发展已st several decades, so has our understanding of cancer. Historically, cancer was often defined according to where it originates in the body (e.g. lung, breast, liver). Today, we know that cancer is a基因组的疾病,意味着它是由人类细胞的潜在变化引起的,称为基因组改变。这些基因组改变可以发生在身体的任何地方,并且是导致癌细胞无法控制的原因。重要的是,癌症基因组检测可以帮助我们确定每个人癌症中的特定基因组改变,并可能识别可用的目标治疗方案或临床试验。

Take肺癌for example. Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related death worldwide, claiming the lives of 1.76 million people each year2。We used to think there were two types of lung cancer. Fast-forward to today, and more than a dozen genomic alterations have been identified in lung cancer that can be targeted by specific treatment options3.

测试个性化治疗方法

了解每个人癌症的独特基因组改变给医生有关其疾病的重要信息,以帮助诊断,并计划为他们及其癌症提供个人的治疗路径。这可能包括新的治疗方案和临床试验,否则可能存在未知,并且有助于避免治疗不太可能产生影响。随着技术的发展,所以患有癌症基因组测试。如今,一种简单而无侵入性血液测试可用于扫描数百个基因组改变。

近年来科学家们已经推出了一种新型的治疗方法,称为‘tumour-agnostic’.Tumour-agnostic treatments are specifically designed to target a tumour’s unique genomic alterations, irrespective of where the cancer is located in the body.

将癌症基因组测试与肿瘤无症状治疗相结合,可能对可能否则可能有很少或没有临床选择的人开辟新的可能性。癌症基因组检测和肿瘤 - 无症状治疗包括在更广泛的概念中,被称为个性化医疗保健。在Roche,个性化的医疗保健涉及在合适的时间识别右侧患者的正确治疗方法。

为了真正意识到癌症基因组测试的承诺,需要提高对其可以发挥的重要作用的认识和理解。

帮助我们#putcancertothetest.

At Roche, we want to#PutCancerToTheTestby spreading the word about testing and encouraging more people living with cancer to have a conversation with their doctor about whether a cancer genomic test may be right for them.

You can help us #PutCancerToTheTest by showing this article to loved ones affected by cancer and by sharing this article on social media, with the hashtag #PutCancerToTheTest.

If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with cancer,download this guide帮助您与医生进行谈话癌症基因组测试。

当你听到“测试”这个词时,你觉得什么?

癌症如何开始?
