In this episode, we discussed genomic testing for cancer with expert oncologist and Massive Bio Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Arturo Loaiza-Bonilla.
Genomic or biomarker testing is the way physicians look for biomarkers (genes, proteins, and other substances) to provide more info about a cancer. Each tumor has a unique pattern of biomarkers, and some biomarkers affect which treatments to pursue and how they work. Biomarkers can also help to diagnose and monitor cancer after treatment.
