CureMatch Launches Decision Support Platform to Harness the Power of Personalized Medicine in Cancer Care
CureMatch is the first and only company to provide a comprehensive decision support system ranking personalized combination therapy options
SAN DIEGO, CA – March 7, 2017 –CureMatch today announced the launch of their decision support software platform for the selection of combinations of cancer-fighting drugs; personalized for individual patients based on the molecular profile of the patient’s tumor. The CureMatch platform is a comprehensive solution that couples expertise in oncology, genetics, proteomics, biochemistry, and cell biology with extraordinary computation power. The result is an easy to read report delivered to the oncologist with a ranking of the best matched combination therapy options. Personalized combination therapy has been shown in studies to have higher response and survival rates than traditional chemotherapy or targeted monotherapies.
“We now recognize that cancer is a highly individualized disease,” said Blaise Barrelet, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of CureMatch. “Patients have traditionally been treated with a one-size-fits-all treatment of chemotherapy, aimed largely at fighting a particular type or origin of cancer. This is old thinking with highly limited positive results.”
