MGMT Gene Methylation Detection Kit



(CE-IVD)


CHEMOTHERAPY AND PERSONALIZED TREATMENT 

O6-Methylguanine DNA-Methyltransferase (MGMT) is a highly efficient DNA repair enzyme that can repair the damage to the tumor cell DNA caused by alkylating drugs in chemotherapy. A certain level of MGMT activity in cells may lead to drug resistance.

MGMT's repair of alkylating agent damage makes it play a dual role in tumor chemotherapy: on the one hand, it protects normal tissues from alkylating agent damage and secondary cancer. On the other hand, it causes the resistance of tumor tissue to alkylating agent chemotherapeutics.




DNA methylation is closely related to the occurrence and development of glioma.The“Guidelines for Detection Technology of Tumor Individualized Therapy” states that patients with methylation of the MGMT gene will be benefit from Temozolomide treatment.

DETECTION SIGNIFICANCE 

· MGMT methylation indicates patients will be sensitive to temozolomide chemotherapy, which is helpful for clinical selection of suitable treatments.

· MGMT methylation may suggests a better prognosis.



APPLICABLE  PEOPLE

WHO grade III-IV glioma patients before chemotherapy treatment.
