myelodysplastic syndrome

Increased incidental detection of clonal hematopoiesis and new considerations for mutations in myelodysplastic precursors herald improved precision medicine strategies.

The program is in its third year monitoring individuals with these mutations to try to detect disease early, understand their risk, and develop preventive treatments.

Transcriptomic and multi-omic data spanning more than 10,000 samples helped map "immunogenomic" interactions that may inform treatment outcomes and targets.

Onconova will use Mission Bio's Tapestri platform to study rigosertib — a drug that Onconova is developing — to target the RAS mutation in myelodysplastic syndromes.

Investigators saw signs that risky TP53 missense mutations may interfere with wild type copies of the tumor suppressor gene in acute myeloid leukemia and other myeloid cancers.

The firm is using automated laboratory testing, artificial intelligence, and single-cell omics for a "precision" approach to cancer drug discovery.

A new analysis suggests that some mutations that seem to occur in tumors might actually stem from infiltrating blood cells affected by myeloproliferative neoplasms.

Individuals with higher-than-usual mutant allele frequencies after stem cell transplantation were prone to disease progression and reduced progression-free survival.

The working group reviewed data to identify a minimum of 34 commonly mutated genes that should be included in pan-myeloid targeted panels.

Researchers identified mutations present prior to allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation that coincided with MDS survival and relapse.
