Commenting on the award, Dr. Manjiri Bakre said, “I am extremely happy to receive this award and to be recognized by a prestigious platform like ET Healthworld. At OncoStem,we have always believed that technology has the potential to redefine cancer care and treatment. Our AI based prognostic test has helped a number early stage breast cancer patients avoid over treatment of cancer. This recognition further strengthens our commitment towards customizing breast cancer treatment by allowing low-risk patients to avoid chemotherapy.”

OncoStem’s CanAssist Breast is a prognostic test for early-stage hormone receptor positive breast cancer patients. It makes customized treatment possible by analysing the patients tumor in depth and providing a patient specific report. CanAssist Breast categorizes patients based on the risk of cancer recurrence clearly as either ‘low or high’ with no grey area in between. This clear distinction of patients based on risk of cancer recurrence allows doctors to devise treatment plans that are in tune with the prognosis, maintaining a balance between the benefits and side effects. Patients who are at low risk of relapse can potentially avoid chemotherapy and its associated side-effects while patients who are at high risk of relapse would benefit from the addition of chemotherapy to their treatment regimen.
