tumor sequencing

From changes in trial enrollment to increased flexibility, clinical trials in precision oncology and other fields are feeling the brunt of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

After a study showed that patients who received guidance from Perthera's tumor board lived longer than those who didn't, the company wants to make its technology more accessible.

Paired tumor/germline analysis is not routinely done in cancer care, but some labs are starting to report incidental germline findings alongside patient's tumor profiles.

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.

The vaccine, based on a patient's unique tumor variations, will be combined with cytokine immunomodulator IL-12 and a PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor.

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.

With exome sequences from more than 600 metastatic breast tumors, researchers identified genomic alterations related to tumor progression, treatment response, and patient outcomes.

At the ACMG meeting, a Children's Hospital of Philadelphia researcher described finding relatively high rates of hereditary cancer variants in tumor sequence data.

The hospital is in the process of clinically validating a sequencing pipeline for its pediatric cancer patients, with the goal of demonstrating clinical utility.
