The collaborative effort will deliver molecular profiling, personalized treatment recommendations and clinical trial matching to patients with colorectal cancer
HOLLISTON, MA, UNITED STATES, July 13, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Perthera, the market leader in Precision Oncology, and Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), a leading colorectal cancer patient-empowerment and advocacy organization in the United States, are partnering to provide precision cancer care answers to patients from across the nation with colon and rectal cancers.
“We are excited to not only work with Fight CRC on this program, with staff and volunteers that have driven many successful campaigns on behalf of colorectal cancer patients, but also to serve a patient population that can significantly benefit from Molecular Profiling and the analysis our platform provides,” said Gary Gregory, CEO of Perthera. “Our Precision Oncology Platform has been proven to significantly improve both Overall and Progression-Free Survival for patients who follow our treatment recommendations. We’re confident we will see similar results for Fight CRC patients.”
The partnership will focus on delivering Perthera’s Precision Medicine services to patients receiving Next Generation Sequencing or any other form of molecular testing. Both patients and their oncologists will be provided Perthera’s precisely matched treatment recommendations and Clinical Trial Matching services. Perthera will coordinate molecular testing and get patient samples to participating labs as necessary. If a patient has had molecular testing in the last 12 months, Perthera can also analyze these results and provide an easy to read report with ranked therapeutic options.
“We are impressed by Perthera’s Platform which is proven to both advance patient outcomes from an overall and progression-free survival perspective and improve Clinical Trial enrollment by five times the national average,” said Anjee Davis, President of Fight CRC. “Perthera’s exceptional capabilities are aligned with our mission to enhance colon and rectal cancer research, treatment, and policy. Our partnership will deliver exemplary value to patients, physicians and our clinical trial sites across the nation.”
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 147,950 new cases of colon and rectal cancers will be diagnosed in the US in 2020, with an estimated 53,200 deaths. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. and the 4th most common cancer impacting men and women, with about 90 percent of new cases occurring in individuals 50 and older. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommends every patient with cancer, regardless of age, talks to their doctor about whether molecular testing is right for their specific cancer.
