WHAT IS NEXT-GENERATION SEQUENCING?
Next-generation sequencing is a tool that allows oncologists to discover significant functional mutations, genetic changes and pathways. Findings may be linked to cancer formation or progression as well as inform on sensitivity to certain therapies. Understanding the molecular basis for how tumors develop, evolve and metastasize is vital because these discoveries may act as a basis for early detection in addition to personalized and targeted treatment that will improve health outcomes.
NEXT-GENERATION SEQUENCING AT ESPERANCE
Esperance is the only clinic in Thailand that uses next-generation sequencing with Watson for Genomics, which is an advanced tool that allows oncologists to set up specific and tailor-made treatment plans. Developed by IBM, Watson for Genomics achieves this by correlating results of the genetic analysis with the most current research and leading-edge therapies available. Broadening Esperance’s expertise, we also perform next-generation sequencing in our own laboratory. Moreover, next-generation sequencing generates an intricate report, which is then communicated to the patients using easily understood language.
