Molecular Pathology is the study and diagnosis of diseases through the examination of molecules within organs, tissue or bodily fluids. This specialty uses molecular testing tools to identify mutations by detecting expression levels of certain genes in the genome of tumor cells, or by testing DNA/RNA sequences for a particular pathogen. These tools can be helpful not only for diagnosing certain cancers, but also to help select the proper targeted therapy, to determine the risk for tumor relapse or metastasis, or to make an early diagnosis for hereditary cancers.
With personalized medicine at the forefront of healthcare, GoPath Laboratories has established molecular test panels--including proprietary tests--that give physicians the opportunity to identify more effective treatment options that specifically target your patient’s type of cancer. We provide a range of solid tumor molecular tests in GI/liver, prostate, bladder, breast and lung cancers, among others.
