BC Cancer - 2017 Donor Impact Report - 8

Precision Medicine
Because of donors like you,

we are changing the way we treat and
manage cancer with precision medicine.
So many patients are seeing improved
results when treated according to
their genomic makeup. This is truly
making a difference in the lives of
British Columbians.

CBC DOCUMENTARY
FEATURES POG PROGRAM
On February 23, The Nature of Things:
Cracking Cancer episode profiled the
journey of seven cancer patients at
BC Cancer as participants in the POG
Program. Visit CBC.ca/NatureofThings

PERSONALIZED ONCO-GENOMICS
PROGRAM CONTINUES TO GROW
The groundbreaking Personalized Onco-Genomics
(POG) Program at BC Cancer is funded almost
exclusively by philanthropy. POG looks at specific
mutations that cause cancer to develop in an
individual. Doctors can then customize treatment
options to target those mutations.
The study's approach pinpointed the exact genetic
drivers of Zuri Scrivens' [cover] cancer, which led to
a precise treatment regime, including a diabetes
drug that has since kept her disease at bay.

More than 800 patients have been consented to
take part in POG. The next phase of this program
will see the number of patients expand to 2,000,
setting a global precedent both in terms of the
diversity of cancers investigated and the number
of participants.
