NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A study by a team from the Moffitt Cancer Centerhas demonstrated that proximity ligation assays, which detect aberrant gene signaling, can predict response to EGFR-inhibiting drugs.

The study results, published this week in Science Signaling, suggest that this approach could potentially complement mutation-based molecular diagnostics currently used to guide treatment with EGFR inhibitors, by detecting targetable aberrant EGFR signaling even in patients who have normal genotypes.
