targeted sequencing

Interim results from a study in the Netherlands suggest whole-genome sequencing can be done fast enough to uncover treatment targets in metastatic cancer patients.

Thermo Fisher said the assay is the first and, so far, only FDA-approved test of its kind for a targeted treatment for RET fusion-positive NSCLC.

The trial will use Natera's Signatera test to determine patient enrollment eligibility based on the presence of ctDNA and to evaluate response based on ctDNA clearance.

Tumor microenvironment cell transcriptomes pointed to four stromal cell clusters, including immune interacting support cells predicted to impact immunotherapy response.

A consortium convened by Friends of Cancer Research has made progress in quantifying sources of TMB assay discordance and created a new test-alignment software tool.

With at-home testing and online, patient-centered reports, the CureCloud initiative sets out to break down barriers to targeted treatment options while building a broad patient dataset.

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 gap in care suggests that more education and decision support tools are needed to help physicians prescribe drugs based on highly actionable tumor alterations, researchers said.

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

Data presented at ACMG's online annual meeting suggests that more than 10 percent of prostate cancer patients across disease stages carry inherited cancer-related variants.
