適用於大腸癌病患的 IMMUNOSCORE

IMMUNOSCORE® 是評估免疫系統抵禦腫瘤細胞能力的唯一診斷性檢測。IMMUNOSCORE® 能提供針對復發風險的清晰精準結果,從而幫助醫療團隊制定平衡治療獲益與風險的最佳治療方案。

為您的醫療團隊提供關鍵資訊,以優化您的治療計劃

在 IMMUNOSCORE® 開發出來之前,醫師依賴三個因素(稱為 T、N 和 M)來評估復發的風險:

  • T-腫瘤 (T) 在受累器官內的擴散程度
  • N-癌症是否擴散到淋巴結 (N)
  • M - 癌症是否透過轉移 (M) 擴散到身體的其他部位

然而,這種方法未能考慮到免疫系統在評估復發風險方面的重要作用。

IMMUNOSCORE® 透過評估腫瘤部位的免疫反應,為醫療團隊提供更準確的復發風險評估方法。

請閱讀病患和照護人員手冊,了解免疫系統和癌症。

瞭解您的 IMMUNOSCORE®

IMMUNOSCORE® 結果分為兩類:High 和 Low

Immune system low

如果您為 IMMUNOSCORE® High,則表明復發風險較低。

IMMUNOSCORE® High 表明您的免疫系統積極對抗腫瘤,從而降低復發風險

immune system

如果您為 IMMUNOSCORE® Low,則表明復發風險較高。

IMMUNOSCORE® Low 表明您的免疫系統未能積極對抗腫瘤,從而增加復發風險。

IMMUNOSCORE® 對治療策略的影響

如果您的癌症處於 II 期

您的腫瘤為局部性腫瘤。根據 TNM 分期和其他臨床參數,您的醫生將在僅手術或手術後化療之間進行選擇。IMMUNOSCORE® 提供的資訊可用於更好地評估您的風險特征,並確定最佳的個人化治療策略。

如果您的癌症處於 III 期

您的癌症較為晚期,需要接受化療。IMMUNOSCORE® 將幫助醫生針對您的狀況,判定最恰當的化療持續時間。

與您的腫瘤科醫生討論適用於大腸癌的 IMMUNOSCORE®

如果您的腫瘤科醫生不熟悉 IMMUNOSCORE®,則可能會對檢測有疑問。以下是腫瘤科醫生可能想知道的一些關於 IMMUNOSCORE® 的事實:

  • IMMUNOSCORE® 用於局部 II 期和 III 期大腸癌
  • IIMMUNOSCORE® 被列入歐洲腫瘤醫學會 (ESMO) 2020 年大腸癌診斷、治療和追蹤臨床實踐指南
  • IMMUNOSCORE® 已在一項於 2,500 多名 I-III 期大腸癌病患中進行的國際研究中得到驗證 [1]。該研究表明,IMMUNOSCORE® 是一項有力且獨立的病患生存預後因素,在所有評估因素中對病患預後的貢獻最高。

Reduction in chemotherapy use with Immunoscore

透過 IMMUNOSCORE® 減少化療

在高危病患中,70% 的病患為 IMMUNOSCORE High,可能無需化療。
在 III 期大腸癌中,FOLFOX 治療的持續時間從 3 個月到 6 個月不等,大約 50% 的病患在 3 個月之後的延長治療期未表現出顯著的 FOLFOX 治療獲益。

IMMUNOSCORE® is validated for localized colon cancer worldwide and is also available outside the United States for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) through our Innovation Access Program.

For localized Colon cancer, in combination with standard clinicopathologic features, the Immunoscore® result is indicated as an aid to determine the risk of recurrence and to adjust adjuvant chemotherapy decision-making for patients with early-stage colon cancer.

IMMUNOSCORE® must be prescribed by the oncologist managing your treatment. They will be able to determine whether IMMUNOSCORE® is an appropriate test for your situation. Once the test is ordered, the Veracyte team will work with your medical team to obtain the necessary tissue samples and ship them to our pathology laboratory.

We will return the results of your test to your doctor in less than 10 days after the sample reaches our facility.

「我在家分析統計結果,突然發現病患的免疫系統反應確實起到了關鍵作用。資料非常清楚地表明,免疫細胞的數量越多,預期壽命越長。」

獲得 IMMUNOSCORE 的時機和方式

手術後,保留腫瘤的組織樣本以作進一步檢測。當您的醫生訂購 IMMUNOSCORE® 時,病理學實驗室將把該樣本的一部分發送到 HalioDx 實驗室進行檢測。結果將回寄給訂購的醫師以供討論結果。

您「不」需要接受任何額外的手術即可進行 IMMUNOSCORE® 檢測。
