This recognition by CAP augments our focus on the vision to help early stage cancer patients towards optimal treatment planning through reliable and accurate results”

OncoStem’s CanAssist Breast is a proteomic based test that assesses the expression of metastasis-related biomarkers to predict the probability of recurrence of invasive breast carcinoma in early stage ER+/Her2- breast cancer patients. It categorises the risk of cancer recurrence clearly as either ‘low or high’ with no grey area in between.This clear distinction of patients based on risk of cancer recurrence allows doctors to devise treatment plans that are in tune with the prognosis, maintaining a balance between the benefits and side effects. It makes customised treatment possible by either avoiding or shortening chemotherapy treatment cycles in low-risk patients and by identifying high risk patients who would benefit from the addition of chemotherapy.
