The researchers also reported that combining an ER-directed therapy with an irreversible HER2 kinase inhibitor could overcome resistance.

The projects are organized by the Eliminate Cancer Initiative, the National Brain Tumor Society, and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Using a mouse model of immunotherapy resistant disease, the researchers found that this program could be targeted by an inhibitor to improve response.

Count Me In is aiming to sign up more than 100,000 patients across all major cancer types, as well as rare cancers, over the next several years.

The researchers analyzed whole-exome sequencing data from 249 tumors and matched normal tissue from patients with known outcomes to immunotherapy.

Genomic analysis uncovered genetic, transcriptional, and drug response shifts between different cultures, or "strains," of the same human cancer cell lines.

As Dana-Farber migrates its dozens of medical and radiation oncology protocols to the Philips platform, its focus is on digital pathology, genomics, and informatics.
