What Is Live Tissue Science™ [LTS™]?

By collecting live tissue, we can initiate research real-time, moving beyond routine therapies, creating access to researchers, clinical trials, ex vivo therapy testing, clinical vaccines, organoid creation and more. Our science does not stop there. We can utilize cryopreservation, which has been proven successful with fertility and core blood treatment, to enable long-term cancer treatment capabilities. 

Exponential Testing

No longer limited to the three or four paths of treatment, we can test more than 300 drugs, all performed on live tissue vs the patient.

Tumor Travels

It no longer matters where you live or whether you feel comfortable traveling, we can collect, store and test your live tissue without you leaving your community.

Future Access

The second worst thing about being diagnosed with cancer is its recurrence.  The best way to fight cancer a first or second time is to have access to your live tissue.

Why You Need To Ask About Live Tissue Options

At SpeciCare, we’ll introduce you to options that never existed previously.

Options with Live Tissue Science

CHEMO-SENSITIVITY TESTING

We know that feeling as good as possible during treatment is important. Your tissue gives you the opportunity to test your body’s sensitivity to certain kinds of chemotherapy even before you begin treatment. It can also help clinicians evaluate effectiveness prior to administering it to you to guide their chemo choices and save valuable time when time matters most.

TUMOR-INFILTRATING LYMPHOCYTE (TILS)

Cancer is a genetic disease that is caused by changes in the DNA that change the way cells function. By testing your unique combination of genetic changes and tumor DNA sequencing, researchers can help provide information to your medical team that can aid in their treatment planning. Knowledge of your specific genetic mutation profile helps especially in identifying targeted therapies and finding precise options showing the most promise for your genetic make-up.

ACCESS TO CLINICAL TRIALS

Participating in clinical trials can be a good way to gain access to some of the latest treatment options before they become standard of care. By having frozen tumor tissue available, the researchers may be able to test the response of your tumor with their trial before testing it on you. In addition, many clinical trials pursue participants with live tumor tissue samples to aid in their research, so by having it available you increase the options available to you.

INDIVIDUALIZED VACCINE

Your tumor tissue can be used to create a vaccine that is personal to your cancer, body and immune system. The vaccine will allow your body to recognize the cancer cells so it can more effectively fight them while stimulating your immune system.

ORGANOID CREATION

A newly emerging field in precision medicine is the use of patient-derived cancer tissue that is grown into ‘organoids’ (3D cultures of cancerous cells) in the laboratory which can be used for large-scale drug screening, fundamental cancer biology research, oncogene modeling, gene discovery and chemo-sensitivity studies.

How the Medical Community Advances

The global medical community knows it cannot treat cancer as if “one size fits all,” recognizing more than 9.5 million people will die this year, 14 times the number of deaths to date from the global pandemic.  Functional precision medicine with a focus on Live Tissue Science™ is how we break the wheel of cancer deaths.

Put Your Tumor Tissue to Work

Research has proven there is great knowledge to be gained from tumor tissue, an item commonly used by pathology and then thrown away as medical waste. We now know living tumor tissue may be the key to unlocking new personalized treatment options and revelations in cancer care that were not previously available. By saving and preserving tumor tissue alive, we can offer individuals a new and significant validation step to effective therapies for long-term survival. Preserved tissue allows the 85% of patients being treated in their local communities access to leading-edge solutions that transcend geographic boundaries.

You get one chance to save your tumor tissue, don’t let it go to waste.

Increase Your Chances

Take ownership of your tissue to increase your chances. By preserving your live tumor tissue, you’re unlocking the secret to personalized care, giving yourself the greatest chance of survival. Collect, test and preserve your living tumor tissue today, to change the outcome for tomorrow.
