How does SpheroTest improve the therapy result?

Every tumor is unique, as unique as the person who has it. These individual characteristics affect not only the disease but also the effectiveness of a drug treatment.
Already today the genetic profile and other properties of a tumor that affect its response to drugs are examined.
Additionally, we can grow from the tumor tissue of the patient spherical mini-tumors so called spheroids. As these tumors are and react very similar like the individual patient's tumor, our scientists can use them to generate a biochemical and genetic profile of the patients tumor.
On this basis, our experts can make a preliminary selection of suitable drugs. The spheroids then get treated with these drugs. This allows our Scientists to find out which drug or combination of drugs is the most effective.
The data generated by Spheromed allow the treating physician to find the best individual therapy for his patients and to avoid unnecessary side effects.
