Genetic mutations play a role in all cancers. Inherited mutations play a major role in 5 to 10 percent of cancers. Genetic testing can help you know if you carry one of these inherited mutations.
What we can do for you.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) enables researchers and drug developers to better understand the biology that drives cancer predisposition and proliferation. These insights have led to the development of targeted therapeutics and multi-analyte tumor analysis. This, in turn, has opened the door for novel methods to monitor cancer treatment and recurrence.
Generation Diagnostics brings innovation to oncology drug development by offering comprehensive genomic solutions and working in collaboration with leading pharmaceutical providers.
- Certain types of cancer may appear to run in your family. Genetic testing can determine if you have an inherited mutation that increases your risk of cancer.
- You should consider genetic testing for cancer risk if:
– you have a personal or family history that suggests inherited cancer risk
– there is a known mutation for the cancer type
– the results can guide your future medical care
