Introducing an in vivo tumor model for predicting therapeutic efficacy1. A Personalized TumorGraft is Champions Oncology’s innovative platform for implanting a piece of your patient’s live tumor directly into an immune-deficient mouse.
- This revolutionary method preserves the characteristics of the tumor, as if it were growing in the patient, with all of its different cells and supportive stroma, inside a living environment. (Click here for a comparison of TumorGrafts to traditional xenografts.)
- Over time, the tumor will be expanded and implanted into additional mice.
- Champions will then test multiple anti-cancer drug regimens on these mice to identify which one(s) may be most effective at either shrinking or inhibiting the growth of your patient’s tumor.
Champions has conducted studies that have shown that a treatment that either shrinks the tumor or largely inhibits the growth of the tumor implanted into mice has a high likelihood of also working against the tumor in the patient’s body1,2,3.
