Tumor molecular profiling for soft tissue sarcoma
With over 50 different types of soft tissue sarcomas, in addition to the various stages and grades the tumors can represent, tumor molecular profiling may assist your doctors in finding the right chemotherapy drug, or mixture of drugs, for your needs.
By testing the soft tissue sarcoma chemotherapy drugs outside of the body, your care team may determine whether the drugs are more likely to have a positive impact if administered, thereby helping to avoid unnecessary toxicity to you. This service also helps your Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) care team determine combinations of chemotherapy to use for your particular type of soft tissue sarcoma.
Tumor molecular profiling is also useful when exploring targeted drug therapies for soft tissue sarcoma.
