Let us answer your questions about cancer treatment options
My doctor told me there are no more ‘standard’ treatment options for my cancer care. Can Massive Bio help me find other cancer treatments?
Yes, our multidisciplinary team of experts from the most well known academic cancer centers specialize in determining precision oncology treatment plans. They stand ready to give you the best personalized strategy to fight your cancer, even if ‘standard’ treatment options are no longer viable.
My cancer is still responding to ‘standard’ treatment. Do I need to have tumor profiling?Yes, molecular profiling reveals the tumor's genetic makeup, providing valuable information about its behavior and known weaknesses. Massive Bio then identifies the best drugs to target those weaknesses. But, not all tumor profiling tests are the same. Different vendors can vary greatly in their approach and reporting. Massive Bio keeps these vendors in check, and helps you and your treating oncologist decide which one is best for you.
I already have a tumor profiling report. Can Massive Bio still help me?
Yes, our world-class experts, oncologist and molecular specialist, will review your report and provide insights on the most appropriate action based on your cancer type, its genetic makeup and your past treatments.
Am I getting the most effective cancer treatment, with the least amount of side effects?
With Massive Bio's expert top oncologist on your case, you will be. We work with your treating oncologist to select the most effective cancer treatment plan tailored to your tumor profile and clinical history. And, we do so leveraging our data-rich knowledge base of drug-related clinical benefits, treatment efficacy, side effects and toxicities.
I heard about ‘immunotherapy’ but have no idea how to proceed. Can Massive Bio help?
Yes, our PATHfinder immunotherapy plan allows you to access the most comprehensive database of available treatments aimed to harness your body’s defenses to fight cancer. From FDA-approved therapies to the latest clinical trials, we identify and prioritize the best available treatment to improve patient outcome.
How did patients with a similar tumor profile as mine respond to these personalized cancer treatment plans?
Through Massive Bio's secure web interface, your doctor will review how de-identified patients with similar tumor profiles responded to various personalized treatments.
Are clinical trials an option for me?
A clinical trial is always an appropriate treatment option, particularly if standard therapies are not working. Many promising new drugs have been developed over the last decade, but it will take years until they can be prescribed in clinics. We match your genetic and clinical profile to the most promising clinical trials available to fight your cancer today.
Are there better cancer treatments that my insurer will not pay for?
Most likely, yes. Insurers do not pay for treatments that have not succeeded in large clinical trials. Using our data-rich knowledge base and precision oncology experts, we work closely with insurers to explain the tumor profiles and clinical evidence behind each treatment, increasing the chances of reimbursement. We leverage treatment response data and insight into insurance company processes to empower patients faced with tough financial decisions.
Did my doctor give me the correct diagnosis?In most cases, yes. But, since it’s critical you receive the right diagnosis and treatment plan for your specific cancer, we review your progress notes and test results to make sure everything is in order. If a tumor profile report is available, our experts will use that information to confirm diagnosis — because we can typically match a specific molecular profile to the cancer type.
How can I reimburse your services?
You may be able to reimburse yourself in a tax-advantaged way for the costs of Massive Bio’s services or your co-pay if your oncologist orders Massive Bio’s services and documents that request, and you have either a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Savings Account (HSA), regardless of whether the services are reimbursable under your health insurance coverage.
