bladder cancer

A study found that patients with a mutation in ARID1A and expression of immune cytokine CXCL13 had better overall survival on immune checkpoint inhibitors.

In another study at ASCO, the immunotherapy showed benefits as maintenance therapy in advanced bladder cancer patients, regardless of PD-L1 expression status.

The platform was used to subtype patients in a Phase II trial and found that patients in the claudin-low subgroup had the best two-year progression-free survival on pembrolizumab.

This is the second approval for tislelizumab following the drug's initial approval in classical Hodgkin's lymphoma last year.

The results are of interest to drugmakers looking for scalable technology solutions for assessment of PD-L1 for predicting immunotherapy response.

The company will collaborate the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, Institut Gustave Roussy in France, and the University Health Network in Toronto, Canada.

Qiagen's test is intended to identify advanced bladder cancer patients with alterations in FGFR3 or FGFR2 genes and who are likely to respond to erdafitinib.

Clinical researchers at AACR discussed a wide range of approaches focusing on several different potential use-cases in the detection or assessment of early cancers.

The company is seeking NY State approval for its lab, which would allow it to offer both tests as LDTs, hopefully by the end of this year or early next.

In urothelial cancer, the presence of a gene signature stemming from stromal cells seemed to interfere with anti-PD-1 drug response in tumors with infiltrating T-cells.
