The global cancer burden is estimated to have risen to 18.1 million new cases in 2018 according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Asia accounts for nearly half of the new cancer cases worldwide. The Middle East accounts for approximately 0.25 million new cancer cases while Africa accounts for over 1 million new cancer cases. Guardant Health AMEA was formed to address the growing cancer burden in Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
To select the best treatment, doctors and patients must have access to detailed genomic information about the disease. But this information is not easy to obtain. Traditional tissue biopsies require physical access to tumor tissue and come with serious risks for some patients. And for many patients, they aren’t even an option.
We believe the key to conquering cancer is unprecedented access to its molecular information throughout all stages of the disease. We are developing a solution through tests that require only a blood sample.
Today, Guardant’s blood tests are enabling timely therapy selection for patients with cancer while we also advance programs for recurrence detection and early cancer detection. In addition, we are working together with pharmaceutical companies to discover and understand new treatment approaches that lead to better outcomes for patients.
