Functional Testing

Achieving stratification clarity using patient-derived model systems

No two cancers are the same —from their genetic makeup to their microenvironment —so the treatment needs to match the uniqueness. Individually tailored therapy relies on understanding both the underlying genetics and functional responses of cancers throughout the course of treatments to stay one step ahead of any emerging resistance.

In combination with genetic profiling, functional characterization is providing the clarity needed for rational selection of active combination regimens – to ultimately deliver the best possible outcome for every individual.

Reshaping cancer treatment through functional drug testing

Researchers at Pear Bio are revolutionizing personalized cancer care by ensuring every patient is matched with the optimal treatment for their unique cancer profile. Leveraging the power of high-content imaging, the team can inform healthcare professionals which treatments are most likely to be effective, while also advising on which approaches are unlikely to work. By focusing on cancers with alarmingly low 5-year survival rates, they aim to bring about a transformative shift in patient outcomes.
