Making Precision Medicine a Reality

How genomic profiling may help you understand your cancer

At Roche, we believe personalized healthcare has the potential to transform patients’ lives by delivering care tailored to the individual.

Harnessing the power of new digital and data technologies creates opportunities for patients by helping us deliver the right medicines to them at the right time, which is why we are investing in partnerships that will drive the integration of personalized healthcare into our current system. We strive to do more for patients — through richer science, deeper insights, and stronger partnerships — providing better care today, and fueling better care tomorrow.

Earlier this summer, Foundation Medicine joined the Roche Family, allowing us to bring world-leading molecular insights to Canadian physicians and their patients and, in turn, connecting them with customizable and personalized approaches to cancer treatment.  

Since no two cancers are the same, Foundation Medicine uses “Comprehensive Genomic Profiling,” to identify the unique makeup of a patient’s tumour and which gene mutations could be causing it to grow. While not a solution for everyone, this approach may provide powerful  insights that deliver comprehensive clinical decision support tools to Canadian healthcare providers and their patients.
