Genetically Targeted Fractionated Chemotherapy


GTFC, or Genetically Targeted Fractionated Chemotherapy, is a new form of genetically targeted chemotherapy only offered at Envita. A high percentage of patients that are or will be prescribed chemotherapy will experience chemotherapy resistance, and for cancer patients the time spent on treatment that may not work could mean the difference between success and failure. GTFC’s goal is to remove the guess work and the resistance that can occur with chemotherapy and to help achieve better results for patients. This is done through the science of biomarkers and molecular profiling: using detailed genetic information from a patient’s cancer cells to guide better treatment. We have found in our clinical experience that 85% of our patients failed and had exhausted all “conventional” chemotherapy options. GTFC is considered by our doctors to many times be a viable option for patients and after years of seeing cancer patients fail with conventional chemotherapy, Envita has looked to better technology to help win the war on cancer.

The BIG Difference Between Genetic Chemotherapy and GTF Chemotherapy

Genetic chemotherapy is becoming a broad term used by many different cancer centers but not all genetic testing is the same. Many times when other cancer centers perform genetic testing it is from the tumor biopsy, which can contain old information that can lead to patients receiving outdated treatment. The main difference in GTFC is that we test for the circulating tumor cells in the patient’s blood, which may give our doctors the most up to date, real time information on the patient’s cancer targets.

Moving Beyond Outdated Chemotherapy Drugs

Thanks to GTFC, personalized cancer care has gone from a distant dream, to a reality. With cutting edge technology, our doctors look beyond simply the “Pharma recommended drug” for cancer but rather at what drug and supportive natural agents respond best to a patient’s individual cancer cells. At Envita, clinically we have seen this therapy help patients when everything else has failed, and our hope is that patients receive access to this type of personalized cancer approach.
