A new molecular test detects genetic abnormalities in tumours and improves customised cancer diagnosis and treatment
At the Grupo Hospital Clínic, we have a new option for diagnosis of advanced cancer. It is a new test using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology which, by analysing the tumour’s DNA and RNA, detects multiple genetic abnormalities in 52 of your genes. This new cancer diagnostic test allows your treatment to be further customised. In addition, it improves current tests for the diagnosis of lung, colon and rectal cancer and melanoma.
