RGCC Oncotrace

A Comprehensive Tool For Monitoring Cancer And Treatment Progress

RGCC Oncotrace serves as a valuable follow-up tool, accurately evaluating the therapeutic response of cancer treatment. It furnishes essential data necessary for comprehending and anticipating the prognosis of cancer.

Sample Type
Whole peripheral blood sample
Sample Size
15-25ml blood
All Types
Turnaround Time
21 days

How it works?

RGCC Oncotrace guides disease progression and future prognosis. It also helps to identify a patient’s primary tumor in case of unknown primary origin. It precisely assesses the therapeutic response of cancer treatment and provides data that is pivotal for informed decision-making to enhance your overall health and well-being. The test assesses prognosis assessment and disease progression.

How it is done?

The blood sample is meticulously examined to pinpoint the presence and concentration of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs)
CTCs are characterized based on the expression of specific cell surface markers or antigens using immunological techniques that help identify and isolate Cancer Stem Cell (CSC) populations and phenotype markers

Why choose RGCC Oncotrace?

CTC  count: Helps to determine the complexity of the diseasestudies show a direct correlation between the CTC count and overall tumor burden. The CTC count helps clinicians assess the treatment responses. 

Phenotype markers: Offers insights into the tissue of origin of the cells where multiple primary cancer tumors exist in the body. Knowing the primary origin can influence the choice of treatment modalities that optimize patient outcomes by targeting the disease’s biological characteristics and underlying mechanisms. 

Stemness markers:  Indicate that certain cancer cells possess characteristics similar to those of stem cells, including self-renewal, differentiation potential, and the ability to initiate and sustain tumor growth. Identifying stemness markers in cancer is important for understanding the biology of cancer stem cells (CSCs) and their role in tumor initiation, progression, metastasis, and treatment resistance

Which cancers are tested?

Oncotrace is a baseline test that provides data on the status of your cancer before starting the treatment. The test provides information on cancer progression and prognosis which is pivotal for informed decision making.

The test applies to all types of cancer and is not just limited to the following.

Head & Neck Cancer
Liver Cancer
Kidney Cancer
Prostate Cancer
Pancreatic Cancer
Colon Cancer
Lung Cancer
Gastric Cancer
Colorectal Cancer
Bladder Cancer
Breast Cancer

Why clinicians prefer RGCC Oncotrace than other similar tests?

Dr. Vikas Agarwal

“RGCC’s Oncotrace test is invaluable for monitoring cancer recurrence. Its precision enables early detection, facilitating prompt intervention and improved patient outcomes. A vital tool in post-treatment surveillance.”

Useful Information

A simple non-invasive test to monitor cancer.

We suggest undergoing the RGCC Oncotrace test every three months during active cancer treatment to evaluate the efficacy of the ongoing treatment plan.

Every 3 months for 1 year after completing the treatment/surgery to monitor for early relapse/recurrence.

Once patients achieve full remission (when the CTC count is below 1 and all the CSC markers are negative), the test is recommended every six months.)

    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.

    • Do tests reveal drug response and sensitivity to immunotherapy?

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