A Tipping Point for Comprehensive Genomic Profiling in Cancer
Comprehensive genomic profiling is essential to advancing cancer care – and here’s what lies ahead in the precision medicine journey

Precision medicine offers valuable information not just for diagnosis and treatment selection, but also for patient stratification and prognosis. But powerful tools need powerful methods – which is why comprehensive genomic profiling may be the way forward for precision oncology.
Oncology has reached a tipping point and its name is “precision medicine.” No doubt you will have heard of it; in fact, it may well form a substantial part of your daily work. Over the last few years, we have seen tremendous advances in research and in the clinic, thanks, at least in part, to the adoption of comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP), which helps guide treatment decisions based on the molecular drivers of disease. Precision medicine is changing the outlook for many people living with cancer – especially those facing advanced disease.
In breast cancer specifically, we’ve seen an avalanche of research and subsequent progress that spans multiple decades and shapes modern oncology. The progress we’re making for breast cancer patients every day is exciting and provides a glimpse into the potential of CGP and precision medicine not just for breast cancer, but for oncology as a whole.
