KT and Seoul Samsung Medical Center announced on the 11th that they signed a joint research deal for cancer gene analysis to offer customized cancer treatment. The latest treatment is to analyze genetic mutations and offer customized treatments. Currently doctors decide the types of medication and the treatment frequency based on the patients’ prognosis after the initiation of antitumor therapy. The genetic analysis allows patients to cut short the testing time and to save medical spending, and doctors can decide optimal anticancer therapy early on.

Both organizations will work on genetic information of 1000 cancer patients combining ICT such as cloud computing and genetic analysis platform, and cancer treatments and genetic analysis knowhow. It is expected to cement Samsung Medical Center’s global leadership in customized cancer treatments and genetic analysis clarifying genetic components in cancer susceptibility and developing core technologies. With the development of customized cancer treatment available for 1 million patients, it can save public health spending and enhance quality of life. 

Cha Dong-seok, Head of Healthcare Business Development at KT, said individualized medical service based on genetic analysis can be widely available with large scale of computing power and analysis technology. KT further plans to work on bioinformatics-induced genetic analysis business in the future.

Seoul Samsung Medical Center is also working with outside researchers and labs in and out of the country while strengthening the infrastructure connecting the research with clinical services for the application of genetically customized precision medicine.
