The B44 supertype is associated with improved survival in melanoma patients treated with immunotherapy, but less so in NSCLC patients, due to mutational differences.

The funds will support continued growth in precision oncology, new product development, and new initiatives in the clinical trial and biopharmaceutical markets.

The company's approach combines whole-genome sequencing, CRISPR, liquid biopsy, and gene therapy to target cancer cells with gene fusions.

Genomic and epigenomic data suggest it may be possible to target an FGFR fusion found in open chromatin in a subset of adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas tumors.

A Sanford Cancer Center team is genomically profiling head and neck squamous cell cancer samples to look for biomarkers of immunotherapy and chemoradiation response.

Investigators plan to tap into large genomic and other datasets with an in silico patient to simulate drug responses, uncover treatment targets, and assess therapies.

The INFORM study echoed the 2019 interim results from the NCI Pediatric MATCH trial, which found that 24 percent of participants were eligible for targeted treatment.

ArcherDx will develop sequencing-based circulating tumor DNA assays for use in AstraZeneca's recently launched Phase III MERMAID-1 trial of durvalumab (Imfinzi).

The effort will compare clinical sequencing strategies and explore best practices for educating participants and applying the results to patient care.

Investigators from the Friends of Cancer Research's tumor mutational burden harmonization project shared new data this week at AACR's virtual meeting.
