DAMASCUS, MD, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2023/ — Travera, a leading cancer research company and Genetic Alliance, a network of organizations committed to empowering people to be the catalyst to drive precision medicine, have announced a groundbreaking collaboration to help validate the predictive value of the new Travera test. The Rapid Therapy Guidance Test moves beyond traditional trial-and-error methods to assess the efficacy of various drugs and treatments for cancer patients by testing live cancer cells outside the patient’s body against FDA-approved drugs. With a two-day turnaround, this cutting-edge technology precisely measures each drug’s effectiveness, helping doctors determine the most promising treatment options and empowering cancer patients with the information they need to regain control over their treatment plans.

To support this and other innovations in cancer, Genetic Alliance has assembled a Cancer Innovation Community on Luna to enable patient advocacy groups and individuals access to and feedback for new oncology interventions and therapies. The Luna platform provides the processes and mechanisms for individuals to control their own data and grant access to it for research that matters to them.

The partnership between Travera, Genetic Alliance, and Luna is a testament to the power of collaboration in the quest to improve cancer treatment and pave the way for its widespread adoption in cancer care.

By validating the efficacy of this breakthrough technology, the three organizations aim to revolutionize the way cancer patients are treated, offering hope and empowerment in the face of uncertainty.
