Study of a new cancer sensitivity test (CANscriptTM) that could help inform physicians in selecting treatments

Research Question:
Are CANscript™ test results helpful in selecting the treatments prescribed and provided?

Basic Study Information

The purpose of this study is to trial the CANscript™ sensitivity test, which is a new and different test developed to indicate the sensitivity of different cancer types to physician-selected therapies (both drugs and/or drug combinations). CANscript™ tests how a patient's specific tumor reacts to the therapies being considered by the treating physician. CANscript™ test results have been shown to closely correspond with actual clinical results, providing physicians with information that may help him/her develop a more personalized cancer treatment and care plan based on the patient's specific condition. The researchers want to see if CANscript™ test results are helpful in selecting the treatments prescribed and provided. There will be about 800 people taking part in this study, across 5 different tumor types. The study is designed to assess the decision impact of the CANscript™ test results in informing physicians in therapy selection.
