Based on an eight-month progression-free survival advantage in Keynote-177, oncologists said that Keytruda may be the new frontline option for this subset of patients. 

Researchers used microarray data from colorectal cancer patients to develop a model 15-mRNA prognostic signature, which they hope will ultimately guide treatment decisions.

The tool, which has been validated in two independent patient cohorts, uses artificial intelligence to predict patients likely to benefit from upfront FOLFOX.

Early sub-protocol results presented at AACR meeting hint at better outcomes for Mektovi-treated cases with NRAS codon 61 tumor mutations.

The firms will evaluate Stratafide, a pan-solid tumor diagnostic test designed to identify actionable genomic alterations in tissue or blood samples.

Encorafenib (Pfizer/Array BioPharma's Braftovi) is approved in combination with cetuximab (Eli Lilly's Erbitux) for previously treated patients.

Oncolytics will run two biomarker validation studies before pursuing the first registration enabling trial in HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer for Reolysin.

Investigators reported on how ctDNA, measured using Natera's patient-specific Signatera assays, corresponded to a patient's disease progression and other biomarkers.

In the upcoming clinical trial, the companies will evaluate the effects of Ideaya's PKC inhibitor IDE196 and Pfizer's MEK inhibitor binimetinib.

The company has seen promising activity for the drug in KRAS-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer, and biomarker-defined patient subgroups with castration-resistant prostate cancer and AML.
