Laboratories that chemo sensitivity test
This article was fascinating. Where are the laboratories that did the chemo sensitivity testing on these non-chemo agents, please? Mitra is a new, live tumor testing facility, but because they are not commercial yet - Dana Farber will not biopsy tumor tissue and allow them to test it. Sigh..
Maybe there is another lab out there for me...

The lab used in this case was RGCC https://www.rgcc-group.com/ They are located in Grece but as I know they are working with multiple clinics from US. Like most of these labs, they are using either tumor sample or blood sample if tumor sample is not available. In order to learn if there is a clinic close to you to do this you should probably contact them directly and ask.
However, note that chemosensitivity tests are not yet accepted conventionally since the outcome is still debatable and its usefulness is not yet 100% clear ... yet, is better than nothing.
Thanks for Alternmed for helping us.
Here is a real test on August 2017.
