New Hope, New Approach to Beat Cancer
Champion Oncology’s TumorGraft™, available at Parkway Cancer Centre, can lead to better patient outcomes through more informed and customised cancer treatments

TumorGraft™, a revolutionary transplantation procedure and study that provide insight into identifying potential customised cancer treatments for patients, is now available in Asia through Parkway Cancer Centre (PCC).

A procedure advanced by Dr David Sidransky, founder and Chairman of Champions Oncology who is named one of the most influential scientists by TIME Magazine for his work with early detection of cancer, TumorGraft™ aims to increase patients’ chances of positive cancer treatment outcome through early identification of anti-cancer agent efficacy.

Through TumorGraft™, patients can now bank their tumours and preserve them as living samples for the study. The live tumour is propagated into immune-deficient mice to be tested against treatment options in order to identify drugs with the highest treatment efficacy in the event of tumour recurrence or tumour progression.

Find out from Dr. Ang Peng Tiam, Medical Director at Parkway Cancer Centre (PCC) about stories of hope; and learn about TumorGraft™, the procedures of tumour grafting and patients’ suitability from Dr. David Sidransky.
