20/20 Acquires Rights to Protein Biomarkers for Lung Cancer Dx from U of Kentucky

NEW YORK, Dec. 19 (GenomeWeb News) - The University of Kentucky said last week that it has licensed a panel of protein biomarkers to 20/20 GeneSystems that the company will use to develop a lung cancer diagnostic tool.

 

University of Kentucky researchers reported in the November 2005 issue of the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine that they have identified multiple antibodies that the body's immune system produces in response to lung cancer development.

 

With the biomarkers identified by the team, 20/20 plans to create a screening test for the early detection of lung cancer using its proprietary layered peptide array platform.

Lung Cancer Response to Checkpoint Inhibitors Reflected in Circulating Tumor DNA

In non-small cell lung cancer patients, researchers find in JCO Precision Oncology that survival benefits after immune checkpoint blockade coincide with a dip in ctDNA levels.

Study Reviews Family, Provider Responses to Rapid Whole-Genome Sequencing Follow-up

Investigators identified in the European Journal of Human Genetics variable follow-up practices after rapid whole-genome sequencing.

BMI-Related Variants Show Age-Related Stability in UK Biobank Participants

Researchers followed body mass index variant stability with genomic structural equation modeling and genome-wide association studies of 40- to 72-year olds in PLOS Genetics.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.
