HOW DECODER WORKS

DECODER is carried out by analyzing, through Next Generation Sequencing, the Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) and Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) obtained from peripheral blood of the patient. DECODER is performed to determine the presence of more than 3.500 COSMIC mutations in more than 70 genes that are associated with the most prevalent cancers.

WHY ctDNA

Molecular characterization of ctDNA allows to know the genetic profiles of tumors. DECODER’s results provides accurate and real-time information of cancer activity and prognosis after treatment.

WHY CTCs

The enumeration and genetic analyses of CTCs represents an effective prognostic and predictive biomarker, which is able to monitor efficacy of adjuvant therapies and detect early development of metastases and at last, assess therapeutic responses of advanced disease earlier than traditional imaging methods
