  13. 13. Adenocarcinoma prognosis largely depends upon the growth/stage of the cancer tumors. www.ipgdx.com Adenocarcinoma Prognosis
  14. 14. PrognostiCheck® measures the prognosis of patients with Adenocarcinoma. It enables the physician, patient and family to make better treatment decisions and to see the trajectory of the disease in an individual patient; not a statistical estimate. www.ipgdx.com Adenocarcinoma Prognosis
