tumor mutational burden

Recent studies question the clinical utility of tumor mutational burden as a biomarker for immuno-oncology response, and the FDA clearance includes no therapeutic indications.

The firm also recently released the results of collaborations with Admera Health and RareCyte that used its multiplex PCR-based target enrichment technology.

In a survey conducted by an association working group, 40 percent of respondents said they are already offering TMB, with most others planning to do the same within the year.

The company said it has seen progress in efforts to get FDA approval for its tissue and liquid biopsy tests as data continues to accumulate for pan-cancer utility.

As labs implement TMB workflows in-house, studies are showing that its is possible to validate assays with cutoff points remaining stable across complex clinical cohorts and in different drug contexts.

NantHealth's net loss fell by 37 percent, to $14.7 million, as revenue from software-related revenue jumped by 23 percent while expenses fell.

An international team documented TP53 mutation-related genomic changes across dozens of cancer types using data generated with five platforms for the Cancer Genome Atlas project.

With exome sequences from more than 600 metastatic breast tumors, researchers identified genomic alterations related to tumor progression, treatment response, and patient outcomes.

In the JAMA study, researchers confirmed the previously known clinical and genomic features of NSCLC patients in their large clinico-genomics database.

Cambridge Cancer Genomics will contribute AI, liquid biopsy technology, and a TMB sequencing panel to broaden access to cancer immunotherapies in the UK.
