The company will test whether ALRN-6924 can protect patients with TP53-mutated small-cell lung cancer from the off-target effects of chemotherapy topotecan.

The firm's technology uses ex vivo organ culture to model cancer growth and predict a patient's tumor response to chemotherapy and targeted drugs. 

Patients with luminal breast cancer subtypes may do just as well without anthracycline-based chemo and avoid unnecessary toxicities, a study showed.

The test relies on a signature that Almac developed for stratifying breast cancer patients, but which, as the researchers showed, can be used in other cancers as well.

In a new analysis of the trial, researchers concluded that women over the age of 50 with recurrence scores below 25 appear to see no added benefit from adjuvant chemo.
