esophageal cancer

A new analysis hints that adenocarcinomas or squamous cell carcinomas may have certain overlapping expression patterns, regardless of the tissue of origin.

The five-year award will provide funding for researchers to investigate genetic determinants of Barrett's Esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma.

In Genome Research this week: esophageal adenocarcinoma sequencing study, the automated BLAST pipeline Leapfrog, and more.

The activity follows a recent financing round that has enabled OncoDNA to build out its sales team as it courts new clients.

OncoDNA has launched two new precision cancer medicine projects, the budgets for which total €16 million and are being supported in part by the Belgian Walloon Region.

The study also found that esophageal squamous cell carcinomas resemble head and neck cancer, while esophageal adenocarcinomas are similar to gastric cancers.

Eleven new recommendations were issued to address appropriate HER2 testing and clinical guidance in individuals with advanced gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma.

Genome sequencing on more than 100 esophageal adenocarcinoma tumors led to structural rearrangements and three esophageal adenocarcinoma mutational subtypes.

Researchers uncovered ties between a germline VSIG10L mutation, inherited forms of Barrett esophagus, and related esophageal cancer cases.

The company's technology will be used to analyze samples from a large cohort of Chinese volunteers to identify biomarkers for early cancer detection.
