cancer subtypes

Researchers profiled cancer gene mutations, expression, protein patterns, and other features in 23 recurrent or metastatic cases of olfactory neuroblastoma.

A proportion of pediatric ALL patients appear to have germline TP53 mutations associated with later diagnoses, poorer outcomes, and increased secondary cancer risk.

New studies suggest low-, intermediate-, and high-methylation subgroups exist in juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, potentially offering insights into patient outcomes.

The Danish informatics firm is exploring analytical tools for its InWeb_InBioMap network, which currently contains more than 700,000 protein-protein interactions. 

Using RNA sequences for thousands of cells, researchers looked at head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and proposed streamlined expression subtypes.

Investigators have established hundreds of patient-derived xenografts, cell lines, and tumor samples, which appear to represent a wide range of melanoma molecular subtypes.

Using an integrated omics approach, researchers identified non-muscle invasive bladder cancer subtypes, along with pathways that are frequently altered in the disease.

Many molecularly distinct subgroups emerged from a meta-analysis bringing together more than 1,000 high-grade glioma or diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma cases.

The team found that cancer-causing genes depend on the BTK gene, which they believe they can shut down with an existing drug.

The Belgian company recently received €3.6 million to develop the signature into a clinical test within the next three years.
