Full data has been submitted to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2021 Annual Meeting.
“These results show there’s a significant improvement for patients when treated according to the IndiTreat® test” said Ole Thastrup, 2cureX’s Chief Scientific Officer. “This is an important achievement in this historically hard-to-treat disease. We are deeply appreciative of the cancer patients and clinical investigators who participated in this trial”.

About the IndiTreat® trial in colorectal cancer
A single-center, phase II trial included patients with metastatic colorectal cancer previously exposed to all standard therapies. A panel of off-label drugs were tested in the IndiTreat® test, and the most effective treatment was provided to the patient.
The primary endpoint of the trial was the fraction of patients with Progression-Free-Survival (PFS) after two months of IndiTreat-guided treatment.
2cureX has developed the IndiTreat® (Individual Treatment) test. IndiTreat® establishes thousands of 3D micro-tumors (tumoroids) that are similar to the patient’s tumor and identifies the treatment that most effectively kills the patient’s tumor and the treatment to which the patient is resistant. Immediately after the test, the patient can be offered the selected treatment.
The first IndiTreat® products will be in colorectal cancer. Subsequent products will help patients with ovarian cancer and patients with pancreatic cancer.
