Molecular pathology

Molecular pathology is the study of blood samples and tissue on a molecular level. Molecular pathology has advanced tests such as sequencing performed on DNA or RNA from an individual’s blood or tissue helps in revealing the presence of genetic changes. The genetic changes can indicate which kind of cancer it is, helps in directing what type of therapy rational, and allows determining whether genetic predisposition is present to develop a disease or condition. Molecular and genomic pathologists will test the samples for the presence of certain molecular indicators that can affect prognosis of disease, diagnosis and treatment. Pathological report will help begin the best plan of care at a early stage. The purpose of molecular pathology is to evaluate the mechanisms of disease by identifying molecular and pathway alterations.
