“This is the future of cancer diagnosis, of cancer treatment, of cancer management, of cancer prognosis,” molecular medicine and genetics researcher Raj Atikkuke said Wednesday, surrounded by local oncologists and other researchers as he launched the company ITOS Oncology at Hotel-Dieu Grace.
ITOS is a biomedical company which is rolling out cutting-edge cancer-fighting technology that uses DNA sequencing to precisely identify and combat the disease in individual patients.
ITOS is the only centre in Ontario that sequences cancer genes and one of few in North America that will provide a complete genetic profile of a cancer. Currently, ITOS is doing laboratory research in a rented space at Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital with their own supplied equipment.
