TargetCancer Foundation is at the forefront of advancing rare cancer research.

Since our founding in 2009 by a patient facing cholangiocarcinoma, we have worked to speed the path to more effective and personalized rare cancer treatments through research. Our research initiatives engage key rare cancer stakeholders, including patients, advocates, researchers, clinicians, drug developers, and regulators. These initiatives include:

TCF-001 TRACK Clinical Trial

The TCF-001 TRACK clinical trial represents a cutting-edge approach in the field of precision oncology, specifically focusing on rare cancers and cancers of unknown primary. This trial is currently enrolling 400 patients using a remote consenting process. This process allows patients to conveniently enroll in the TRACK study from the comfort of their homes, eliminating the need for travel to clinical trial sites.

Once enrolled, patients gain access to biomarker testing of their tissue and blood at no cost, and the results of these tests are reviewed and interpreted by a multidisciplinary panel of esteemed clinicians and scientists specializing in rare cancers. This expert panel provides patients with individualized treatment recommendations, informed by the latest advancements in genomic research and personalized to their unique health needs.


I consider this THE national precision medicine trial for rare cancers.
