At Novomed, we understand that early and accurate cancer detection is paramount to successful treatment outcomes. That is why our expert oncologists offer Circulating Tumor DNA (ctDNA) testing, a revolutionary approach that has redefined the landscape of cancer diagnostics, at our clinics in Dubai. This cutting-edge technology allows us to detect and monitor cancer at a molecular level, providing personalized insights that guide treatment decisions. Continue reading to learn more bout ctDNA testing at Novomed, designed to empower patients with knowledge and offer a path to proactive cancer management.

What is a ctDNA test?

Circulating Tumor DNA (ctDNA) is genetic material shed by tumors into the bloodstream. This non-invasive “liquid biopsy” technique allows us to capture a snapshot of the genetic mutations and alterations present in a patient’s cancer cells. This information is crucial for tailoring treatment strategies, monitoring treatment response, and detecting minimal residual disease.

Advantages of ctDNA testing at Novomed

  1. Early detection: ctDNA testing enables the detection of cancer at an early stage, often before symptoms manifest, facilitating timely intervention and improved outcomes.
  2. Personalized treatment plans: By analyzing the unique genetic profile of a patient’s tumor, ctDNA testing allows our oncologists to design personalized treatment plans that target the specific mutations driving the cancer.
  3. Monitoring treatment response: Regular ctDNA testing allows us to monitor how well a treatment is working, enabling adjustments to therapy in real time for optimal results.
  4. Minimal invasiveness: Unlike traditional tissue biopsies, which may be invasive and carry certain risks, ctDNA testing requires only a simple blood draw, making it a safer and more comfortable option for patients.
  5. Comprehensive cancer panel: Novomed offers a comprehensive ctDNA testing panel that covers a wide range of cancer types, ensuring a thorough assessment of potential genetic alterations.

The ctDNA testing process: What to expect

  1. Consultation: Your ctDNA testing journey begins with a consultation with our experienced oncologist who will discuss your medical history, symptoms, and treatment goals.
  2. Blood draw: A small blood sample is collected, and the ctDNA is isolated for analysis.
  3. Laboratory analysis: The extracted ctDNA undergoes advanced genomic sequencing to identify specific genetic mutations and alterations associated with your cancer.
  4. Results interpretation: Our team of specialists interprets the results, providing you with a detailed report that outlines the genetic characteristics of your tumor.
  5. Treatment recommendations: Based on the ctDNA analysis, our oncologists will recommend personalized treatment options tailored to target the identified genetic abnormalities.
