As described in this press release of June 28, Perthera has raised a total of $8.7 million in new capital to accelerate and broaden our growth. The funding represents much more than an investment in our company; it is also another validation that the entire field of precision medicine is real and will change healthcare in fundamental ways, and it is another step towards victory in the war against cancer.
“Precision medicine” (sometimes called “personalized medicine”) is an approach to healthcare made possible by the convergence of advancements in IT and a greater understanding of genes and their multistage conversion to proteins.
Perthera gives treating oncologists an edge in decision-making and enables the most comprehensive personalized patient care. Our analysis combines organized scientific knowledge in genomic and proteomic medicine with intelligent input of patient history and provides all necessary and current molecular knowledge in one platform.
Perthera would like to introduce you to a cancer analysis that will ultimately revolutionize the way doctors treat cancer — now and in the future. We call it Precision Cancer Analysis, or PCA for short.
Perthera’s Compassion Card program provides patients with a secure and easy crowdfunding method to pay for precision cancer treatment analysis and medical expenses.
"A big THANK YOU to everyone at Perthera for discovering my HER2 and steering my treatment to TDM-1 – definitely less toxic to the rest of me, and hopefully more toxic to my form of cancer."
“Your process gave our family hope that options were available to us.”
"My doctor and I had Perthera do the molecular analysis on my tumor. The report was extensive and very thorough. I was impressed with the diagrams that showed the pathways and components of my cancer. I would do this again as we now know what is going on with my specific cancer and have options to treat the cancer. I would not want to go in blind when deciding on treatment options."
"I have read about molecular profiling but was not sure how to get the tests done for my cancer. Perthera made it easy for me to understand. Continue the great work."
"The staff at Perthera was very kind and caring. The process was well explained and I am hopeful that the treatment my doctor chose from the report will work for me."
