About Foundation Medicine

Foundation Medicine is a molecular information company dedicated to a transformation in cancer care in which treatment is informed by a deep understanding of the genomic changes that contribute to each patient's unique cancer. The company's initial clinical assay, FoundationOne, is a fully informative genomic profile to identify a patient's individual molecular alterations and match them with relevant targeted therapies and clinical trials. Foundation Medicine's molecular information platform aims to improve day-to-day care for patients by serving the needs of clinicians, academic researchers and drug developers to help advance the science of molecular medicine in cancer. FoundationOne is a fully informative genomic profile that complements traditional cancer decision tools and often expands treatment options by matching each patient with targeted therapies that may be relevant to the molecular changes in their tumor. Using next-generation sequencing, FoundationOne interrogates all genes somatically altered in human cancers that are validated targets for therapy or unambiguous drivers of oncogenesis based on current knowledge. It reveals all classes of genomic alterations including base substitutions, insertions, deletions, copy number alterations and select rearrangements. Each patient's genomic profile is reported to the physician matched with targeted therapies and clinical trials that may be relevant based on the molecular blueprint of their tumor. Results are supported by the latest scientific and medical evidence. FoundationOne has been optimized to fit easily into the clinical workflow of a practicing oncologist. It is available for all solid tumors and clinical grade results can be obtained from as little as 50ng of DNA obtained from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor tissue samples. FoundationOne is a laboratory-developed test performed at Foundation Medicine's CLIA-certified facility and is currently available for all solid tumor types. On June 18th, 2018, Foundation Medicine was acquired by Roche Holdings.3B.

Click To get FREE SAMPLE PDF (Including Full TOC, Table & Figures): Esoteric testing is a type of medical testing that involves the analysis of rare, complex, or difficult-to-diagnose conditions or diseases. This type of testing is often used when standard laboratory tests have failed to provide a clear diagnosis or when a more specialized approach is needed to determine the underlying cause of a patient's symptoms. Esoteric testing may involve a wide range of tests, including genetic testing, molecular testing, advanced imaging studies, and specialized microbiology and virology tests. These tests often require specialized equipment and expertise, and may be performed by specialized laboratories or academic medical centers. Esoteric testing can be especially helpful in diagnosing rare diseases, identifying genetic mutations or abnormalities, and providing more targeted and personalized treatments for patients. Esoteric Testing Market Statistics: The global Esoteric Testing market size was valued at $20.218 billion in 2020, and is estimated to reach $66.214 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 12.5% from 2021 to 2030.
