Researchers used Mission Bio's Tapestri assay to identify and monitor the evolution of cancer mutations in acute myeloid leukemia in response to targeted treatment.

With DNA methylation data for more than 1,800 chronic lymphocytic leukemia B cells, researchers tracked CLL epimutation rates and saw lineages with distinct treatment responses.

In work presented at the recent American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting, they found that T-cell cytokine production predicted patient response.

If cancer patients carrying the variants could be identified early, their therapeutic strategy could be altered to reduce their risk of cardiomyopathy.

Results from the phase 3 ADMIRAL trial were announced during the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting.

A genomic and transcriptomic analysis of an aggressive form of leukemia suggests that subtypes differ in their prognosis and may respond to different therapies.

The signature is enriched for genes involved in immune-related processes, such as T cell co-stimulation and antigen presentation, and suggests personalized treatments.

The St. Louis-based firm will offer a sequencing service to help researchers separate target signals from errors made during next-generation sequencing.
