The analysis involving GI patients in Germany showed that integrating NGS and WES into practice identified more germline variants and identified unique treatment options.

A Phase II study suggests immune-related expression signatures and other immune markers may help find metastatic prostate cancer cases with better checkpoint blockade response.

An analysis of lung adenocarcinoma brain metastases uncovered more frequent amplifications or deletions in a handful of genomic regions, pointing to potential drivers.

The study suggested that ALL glucocorticoid resistance stemming from alterations that drive down CELSR2 levels might be combated with the BCL2-targeting drug venetoclax.

The Angiosarcoma Project uses patient-partnered research to gather information and glean new genomic insights into angiosarcomas.

Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Using corrected TMB and other variables allowed Johns Hopkins researchers to more accurately predict response to immune checkpoint blockade in lung cancer.

Recent studies question the clinical utility of tumor mutational burden as a biomarker for immuno-oncology response, and the FDA clearance includes no therapeutic indications.

The approval of its Omics Core assay for tumor-normal mutational profiling opens the door for payor reimbursement, which is key to reaching profitability, NantHealth said.

Though some experts prefer the comprehensive nature of whole-genome sequencing, others find whole-exome sequencing or targeted exome panels to be more useful.
