Receive a second opinion from a group of three or more experienced oncology physicians who provide expert, unbiased analysis of your diagnosis.What Is The Virtual Tumor Board?
The Virtual Tumor Board is comprised of a group of expert surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and medical oncologists who gather to discuss treatment options for individual cancer patients.
After our Synergy AI software has found the best clinical trial options for you, the VTB meets to discuss those options. They take the AI-generated list and make their own expert recommendations on the best course of treatment for you. We then share this report with you and walk you through the next steps in the process.
Based on the VTB recommendations, you consult with your local physician to decide your course of action. We then facilitate the process of implementing these recommendations locally.
We track your progress and remain with you every step of the way.
I was helping to locate alternative treatment options for a friend diagnosed with terminal cancer. I am a neurological nurse and clinical research coordinator, but was finding it very difficult to sift through oncological research trials on clinicaltrials.gov. I discovered that Massive Bio takes care of this challenging task free of charge. My friend also sought a second opinion after a disappointing experience with a prestigious university hospital. Massive Bio assembled a group of quality oncologists from top US hospitals to review my friend’s medical history and past cancer treatments. Through their collaboration, they assembled treatment recommendations that were supported with up-to-date research data. In my ten years of practicing as a registered nurse, I have never seen such a comprehensive, detailed medical document. Also, one of the oncologists on the tumor board spent over half an hour on a phone conference with myself, my friend, and his family to explain the recommendations. There is a fee for the Virtual Tumor Board, but it was minimal and in no way could have fully compensated the outstanding staff and oncologists for their time. This also made me feel that the Massive Bio staff genuinely believe in and live their mission. Additionally, this experience alleviated the need for my friend to waste time traveling, as he lives in a rural part of the state. I would recommend Massive Bio wholeheartedly to anyone looking for comprehensive treatment options for their family or friends. I cannot predict that our experience with Massive Bio lengthened my friend’s life, but I’m certain it gave him peace of mind.
So far, my experience with Massive Bio has been very positive. My initial interaction with Eric was informative and he provide me with the proper forms to be completed. The initial report and clinical trial recommendations was excellent. The report provided a details summary of my complete cancer medical history including test results, chemotherapy treatments (which revealed an error in the history on file at one medical institution), and procedures. My follow up conversation with Kristin Johnston was professional, informative and educational. She spent a lot of time with me reviewing the clinical trial options, answering my questions on my current chemotherapy treatment regiment, and was proactive regarding follow up and next steps. I look forward to working with Massive Bio on my current cancer journey and hope that they can assist me with combatting and winning this battle. Best partner for cancer.
My experience with Massive Bio was professional and satisfying. As a stage 4 cancer patient seeking a second opinion and treatment plan due to recurrence of a stomach tumor, I did not have time to lose negotiating the customary hurdles of my HMO insurance plan. I needed to quickly get opinions of recognized leaders in the field. The concept of a Virtual Tumor Board with quality doctors and health care professionals affiliated with Massive Bio was appealing. I was convinced this approach was worth a try...and I was not disappointed. After meticulously collecting details about past diagnoses, treatments, and tests, a thorough report was submitted to both me and my primary oncologist within days. The treatment plan prioritized strategies and reviewed clinical trials appropriate to my case. The plan was so thorough, well conceptualized, and clearly written that my oncologist and I had only a few questions. Those that we did raise were answered quickly and concisely.
Massive Bio worked in collaboration with my local treating oncologist to analyze my carcinoma based on my personal cancer treatment information. In one week, Massive Bio's Virtual Tumor Board experts provided valuable insight and an informative medical report to my doctor. Collaboratively, we agreed that the clinical trial Massive Bio identified was the best option to move ahead.
The service Massive Bio provides is very special, going beyond other oncology services. They combine second opinion and precision oncology, taking into consideration patients’ requests and previous treatments. They provide reports from US-based physicians within a week; the diagnosis and treatment suggestions their doctors and team recommend are really personalized and sophisticated. I wish every cancer patient could get an evaluation from Massive Bio. There is absolutely no need to look for another expert service in cancer treatment advisory other than Massive Bio. I congratulate the team that now provides new opportunities for cancer patients.
Dealing with a cancer, where all the standard options are limited, Massive Bio helped make the case for new immunotherapy which was selected specifically based on my my mother’s treatment challenges. When our oncologist left, Massive Bio took us that much further.
