At A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, the patient is initially evaluated by a multidisciplinary group of specialists and then passes through an integrated process of care, from diagnosis to rehabilitation. The protocols of these procedures are based on scientific evidence. Doctors and scientists work together to develop research that will be applied in oncology in the future. This results in the utilization of the best therapeutic alternatives and, consequently, increases cure rates and patient survival.
“Precision dosing is imperative for cancer patients and the flexible sample collection improved the dynamics between all teams involved from lab, nurses, clinical pharmacists, and infectious disease specialists,” added Telles.
“DoseMe’s mission is to support our clinicians in delivering high-quality evidence-based medicine and the results recognized by A.C. Camargo are phenomenal,” stated Dr. Sharmeen Roy, PharmD, BCPS, Chief Strategy and Science Officer. “With our team of bioinformaticians, scientists, and clinical pharmacists, we offer clinically-validated models for adult and pediatric patients in a range of therapeutic areas, including oncology.”
DoseMe combines smart technology with science, leveraging clinically-validated PK/PD models, patient characteristics, drug concentrations, and genotype to accurately individualize a dose in seconds. The platform is HIPAA, ISO & FDA compliant and the only Bayesian dosing platform to be HITRUST CSF certified.
