Revealing the pathway to life

Determining the functional activity of tumor-driving signal transduction pathways

Building on decades of cell biology research, unravelling the mechanisms driving tumor growth.

 

Essential knowledge has been acquired on the role of signal transduction pathways in cancer growth, providing input for development of drugs targeting signaling pathways. Identification of the tumor-driving pathway and its causative defect is crucial for selecting the most effective therapy.

Philips OncoSignal: Molecular Pathway Dx
Signal transduction pathways
10-15 Signal transduction pathways are known to drive cancer growth; Targeted drugs target the following pathways: Estrogen receptor (ER) and Androgen receptor (AR), Wnt, Notch, Hedgehog, TGF-ß, NF-κB and the growth factor stimulated signaling pathways: phosphoinositide 3-kinase/AKT/FOXO, RAS/MAPK/ERK and JAK/STAT.
Downstream pathway activity
Testing "down-stream" for mRNA transcription of the target genes of pathways OncoSignal enables functional assessment of pathway activity in tumor samples. The expression levels of selected target genes of these pathways are measured using our qPCR test kit; our sophisticated computational models interpret the data and indicate the activity scores of the different pathways. OncoSignal is applicable across a broad range of cancer types.
