Turning cancer into a chronic disease through our unique multimodal approach

Supporting the fight against cancer

Cancer incidence is expected to reach 30.2 million in 2040 and account for 16.3 million deaths that year.1

At SOPHiA GENETICS, our goal is to turn cancer from a potentially lethal condition to chronic disease by providing healthcare professionals with data-driven insights.

Using data-driven medicine, healthcare professionals supplement their own experience and intuition with data insights and shared knowledge from their peers to inform their action.

Data pooling and knowledge sharing

A unique multimodal approach to tackle cancer

A growing understanding of genomics has dramatically advanced cancer diagnosis and treatment. However, genomics is only one piece of the biological equation.

We believe that phenotypic information is needed to put genomic information into context and provide a more complete picture of biology and disease.

The SOPHiA DDM™ platform can compute different digital health data modalities separately or together and combine genomic and phenotypic data to deliver insightful information to further advance global understanding of cancer.

We have developed proprietary capabilities in AI- and machine learning-enabled exploration of such multimodal signatures. Through these, we unlock the synergistic power of next-generation health data to break new ground in predictive capabilities.

Solid tumor

Solid tumors account for more than 90% of new cancer cases worldwide. That’s more than 30 new cases diagnosed every minute.

Butcher, L. (2008) ‘Solid tumors: Prevalence, economics, and implications for payers and purchasers’, Biotechnology Healthcare, 5(1), pp20-21.

From targeted to comprehensive profiling, SOPHiA GENETICS supports healthcare professionals in their journey to analyze each solid tumor.

Blood cancer

Approximately 1.2 million people worldwide are diagnosed with blood cancer every year.

As science and guidelines for myeloid malignancies constantly evolve, so does SOPHiA GENETICS, with the ability to support professionals to confidently access the data they need.

Hereditary cancer

Hereditary causes account for approximately 10% of all cancers.

Al Harthi, F. S., et al. (2020) ‘Familial/inherited cancer syndrome: a focus on the highly consanguineous Arab population’, npj Genomic Medicine, 5, 3.

SOPHiA GENETICS supports the rapid detection of known hereditary cancer genes to inform efficient decision-making all along the cancer care journey.
