UCSF500 Cancer Gene Panel Test

The UCSF500 Cancer Gene Panel is a molecular diagnostic test appropriate for patients with advanced cancer, especially those who experience a poor response to standard therapy. In some cases, the UCSF500 is also appropriate for newly diagnosed cancer cases that are difficult to treat or diagnose with standard approaches. The purpose of the UCSF500 test is to identify genetic changes in the DNA of a patient’s cancer, which provides valuable information for clarifying the diagnosis of that cancer. Specifically, it can modify diagnosis, improve tumor classification, predict disease progression and help guide therapeutic options.
