Tumor molecular profiling for lung cancer
If chemotherapy is part of your integrated lung cancer treatment plan, your lung cancer team will do everything possible to target the therapy to your individual needs. Tumor molecular profiling can help determine the probability of the tumor’s response to specific chemotherapy drugs.
- By testing the lung cancer chemotherapy drugs outside of the body, your care team may determine whether the drugs will work if administered in the body, helping to avoid unnecessary toxicity to you.
- This service also may help your care team determine combinations of chemotherapy to use for your particular type of lung cancer.
