Scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, led by Gabriela Chiosis, revealed how the complexes are important for tumor survival in certain cases.

The partners said they will use genetic sequencing and a combination therapy to determine predictors of sustained minimal residual disease negativity.

In a cohort of more than 150 patients, none who responded well to anti-androgen therapy had AR-V7-positive circulating tumor cells detected by Epic's technology.

Sage is handling the initial data processing and cleaning for the consortium, while MSKCC is providing infrastructure for hosting the data.
