About Targeted Molecular Precision Oncology
Targeted Molecular Precision Oncology utilizes molecular and genetic profiling of tumors to identify targetable alterations, which are the used to deliver precise and highly localized diagnostic, imaging and therapeutic agents to the tumor sites. In targeted imaging and therapy radioisotopes are coupled with targeting molecules to either enable high tech imaging of tumors such as PET or SPECT/CT or deliver Beta, Alpha or Auger radiation to tumors on a cellular level. The cancer patient is considered as an individual who should be provided with personalized, targeted therapies, based on their unique biology and targetable structures of the specific tumor. The objective is to determine the most favorable therapy for an individual patient in order to significantly improve treatment results, quality of life and health economics of cancer care.
The International Centers for Precision Oncology Foundation (ICPO) is a German non-profit organization established in 2019 by leading medical and industry entrepreneurs. Recognizing a paradigm shift in cancer care from one size fits all to a personalized approach, the ICPO is helping build momentum to scale global patient access to Molecularly Targeted Precision Oncology to accelerate this paradigm shift. To scale patient access, ICPO aims to develop a network of International Centers for Precision Oncology organized in a social model based on shared know-how, certified education, and design and process standardization enabling validated best clinical practice. Furthermore, the ICPO Foundation empowers its centers network within a growing global, inclusive community spearheading its model and living up to the Precision Oncology promise to eventually be curative and abundantly available to all patients in need, irrespectively of region, country, or social status.
