RGCC aCGH

Revolutionizing Cancer Care With aCGH Technology

Recent advancements in genetics have revolutionized the ability to study chromosomes at a quick level. array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) emerges as a potential tool capable of pinpointing the specific type of cancer by studying the abnormalities in the chromosomes. The ability to identify the primary source of cancer holds significant importance in cases of CUP, as it correlates with the development of more effective treatment protocols.

How it works?

RGCC array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) test reveals the structural abnormalities present within the genome. It is a cytogenetic assay used for the detection of chromosomal abnormalities. It is an easy and quick method requiring CTCs from a patient blood sample.

Through advanced comparative genome hybridization techniques, this test offers invaluable insights into the patient’s genetic makeup, RGCC aCGH scrutinizes the patient’s DNA for abnormalities and malfunctions, providing personalized chromosomal analysis results, and guiding clinical decisions with precision to find the primary origin of the tumour.

How it is done?

The blood sample is collected from the cancer patient and CTCs are isolated. DNA is extracted from the above samples and aCGH test is performed.
array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) is a specific molecular cytogenetic method that combines aCGH and DNA microarrays and enables whole molecular cytogenetic profiling.
The process involves molecular cytogenetic methods utilizing an array of comparative genome hybridization to assess the chromosomal abnormalities.
This meticulous process ensures comprehensive analysis of chromosomal abnormalities, facilitating accurate identification of abnormal genes that might be linked to a specific type of cancer.

Why choose RGCC aCGH?

Chromosomal abnormalities: Genetic abnormalities have been associated with different diseases including cancer. Genomic aberrations might contribute to tumorigenesis and have been connected with the progression of the diseases. It enables oncologists and clinicians to gain insights into the patient’s genetic profile, identify potential cancer risk factors, and determine optimal treatment strategies.

Primary origin of the tumor: Identifying the primary origin of cancer in cases of unknown primary origin is essential for guiding treatment decisions, predicting outcomes, and monitoring the disease. aCGH test is beneficial when the primary origin of the cancer tumor is unknown. In such a case, the aCGH test helps identify chromosomal abnormalities to help detect the location of the cancer.

Which cancers are tested?

aCGH, array Comparative Genomic Hybridization test designed to identify the location of the primary tumor and detect chromosomal abnormalities helps identify chromosomal abnormalities associated with specific types of cancer. The test is used to detect carcinoma of unknown primary origin.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • Can tests be conducted during ongoing treatment?

      Absolutely, tests can be performed while undergoing treatment to assess the effectiveness of the treatment against cancer.

    • What happens to my blood sample post-testing?

      Your blood sample undergoes processing in cutting-edge laboratories by scientists and technicians to deliver insights into your cancer cells.

    • Is a blood sample sufficient?

      Yes, all RGCC tests utilize blood samples. However, certain cancers, like glioblastoma and brain tumors, may require additional samples such as CSF or tissue. Otherwise, a peripheral blood sample alone is enough.

    • Can the origin of a tumor be determined by the tests?

      Yes, tests like aCGH can pinpoint the origin of an unknown primary tumor by analyzing genetic abnormalities present in tumor cells.

    • What tests are effective in identifying the emergence of secondary tumors?

      RGCC Metastat is an effective test for identifying secondary tumors development and its potential location. It helps detect secondary tumors through analyzing Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) in the bloodstream. The test provides valuable insights into disease progression and metastasis.

    • How do tests personalize cancer treatment?

      Tests personalize treatment regimens by providing crucial information on drugs and therapies tailored to effectively target cancer cells.

    • What are CTCs and CSCs?

      Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) are cancer cells that have detached from the primary tumor and circulate in the bloodstream. Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) are a subpopulation of CTCs and both serve as biomarkers for cancer.

    • Tests like ChemoSNiP and CAMBISeq provide information on the body’s response to the drugs and sensitivity to immunotherapy.
