The Power of Tumor Tissue
You get one chance to save your tumor tissue, don’t let it be thrown it away.
Research has found that there is great knowledge to be gained from tumor tissue, an item previously used by pathology and then thrown away as medical waste. We now know living tumor tissue may be the key to unlocking new personalized treatment options and revelations in cancer care that were not previously available. By saving and preserving tumor tissue alive, we can offer individuals a new and important validation step to eliminate ineffective therapies and to identify effective therapies more quickly opening the door to significant opportunities for long-term survival. Frozen tissue may also allow the 85 percent of patients being treated in their local communities access to leading-edge solutions that transcend geographic boundaries and can be delivered locally.
