2cureX has commissioned independent market research experts 2HMforum to survey GI oncologists as to their ‘Attitude towards drug sensitivity testing’ and the market demand for its IndiTreat® products. Using IndiTreat® – its CE IVD-marked drug sensitivity family of tests – the company delivers insight into individual patients’ response and sensitivity to specific treatment regimes. The results of the survey were excellent and confirm the need and demand for this paradigm shift in cancer treatment.

140 experts from key markets
The survey was carried out in three of 2cureX’s key markets: its home market Scandinavia, in Spain and in Poland, the largest and second-largest market with IndiTreat® distribution respectively. Interviewees included a total of 140 experienced experts in gastrointestinal cancer. Participants were blinded to 2cureX to ensure objectivity. In a 30-minute survey, participants were asked to respond to a wide range of questions ranging from current practices and familiarity with drug sensitivity testing to willingness and interest in using the test.

The survey confirms the need and demand for advanced cancer treatment
The results were excellent, highly promising and clearly confirm the experts’ interest in the IndiTreat® products and a need for this advance in cancer treatment.

  • 46% of oncologists believe that drug sensitivity testing can be a useful tool for selecting the right treatment for individual patients. The main value highlighted (83%) was that drug sensitivity testing provides guidance for drugs that do not have an associated biomarker
  • 54% indicated they would like to try a drug sensitivity test with their patients
  • 39% of participants indicated they are likely to use this type of test over the coming 12 months
  • 72% agreed with the statement that new tools are urgently needed to support therapy decision-making in colorectal cancer.
