cancer subtypes

Using single-cell and bulk RNA sequence data, investigators identified four pathway-based GBM subtypes, including a mitochondrial subtype that appears to respond to related inhibitors.

Using a combination of genomic and epigenomic profiling, researchers spelled out super enhancer-based subtypes, including one linked to poor clinical outcomes.

An integrated proteogenomic analysis led to previously unappreciated treatment targets or prognostic markers in craniopharyngioma, high-grade glioma, and other tumor types.

Using tumor sequencing variant data, investigators identified clonal hematopoiesis mutations in blood that appear to be linked to therapy-related neoplasm risk.

Single-cell RNA sequencing on adrenal gland samples with or without neuroblastoma helped track down key malignant subtypes and tumor features, providing prognostic clues.

Using proteomic, phosphoproteomic, and genomic data, researchers uncovered informative features in primary and metastatic samples from almost 150 CRC cases in China.

Tumor microenvironment cell transcriptomes pointed to four stromal cell clusters, including immune interacting support cells predicted to impact immunotherapy response.

The collaboration seeks to develop RNA-based signatures that could help oncologists predict disease progression and guide the use of precision therapies.

While a subset of metastatic castration-resistant tumors was marked by enhanced methylation, the analysis also pointed to recurrently hypomethylated regions.

Investigators are planning to further validate specific applications, such as prediction of lung and lymphoma cancer subtypes, in independent sample sets.
