At the WIN Symposium, a researcher from Sheba Medical Center discussed ongoing efforts to develop a 22-gene signature for predicting brain metastasis in NSCLC.
A new analysis indicates that colorectal cancer metastases arise from a small number of cells before the primary tumor is large enough to be detected clinically.
With exome sequences from more than 600 metastatic breast tumors, researchers identified genomic alterations related to tumor progression, treatment response, and patient outcomes.
Using exome or transcriptome data from more than 400 metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer cases, researchers identified survival-related alterations in the RB1 gene.
A CTC and ctDNA analysis suggests that the number of alterations affecting the androgen receptor can offer survival insights for TP53 mutation-free advanced cancer cases.
The researchers are developing a web-based tool to help physicians predict their patients' relapse risk and are planning clinical trials to study outcomes.
A multi-omic analysis implicated a handful of transcription factors, along with genes and regulatory RNAs down- and upstream of them, in metastatic colorectal cancer.
The researchers also reported that combining an ER-directed therapy with an irreversible HER2 kinase inhibitor could overcome resistance.
A circulating tumor DNA analysis identified somatic mutations in more than 64 percent of advanced non-small cell lung cancer cases, including some drug targets.
Investigators are studying samples from a group of 100 patients to try to lock down patterns in circulating tumor DNA that can be used to validate monitoring methods for the clinic.
Holden Thorp is to be the new editor-in-chief of Science and its related journals.
