Individual building block of tumor therapy

Dear Sir or Madam,

A tumor alone is debilitating enough for patients, but the medication against it is also hard to deal with. Patients are often hit by strong side effects or the tumor is not affected by a drug at all, so that the patient needs to try other substances. TherapySelect in Heidelberg is specialized to look at these aspects. See in our latest video how the diagnostics company wants to improve and individualize tumor therapy.

Have a nice week,

Medicine is getting more and more personalized. This is particularly interesting for oncology, since a cancer is as individual as the respective patient. When choosing a therapy, both the characteristics of the tumor and the personal characteristics of the patient must be considered.
