tumor mutational burden

With RNA sequencing and other data, researchers gauged neoantigen formation, immunoediting, and clonal evolution in non-small cell lung cancers.

The effort will also help resolve open questions about liquid biopsy sequencing's validity in clinical practice in general.

Researchers traced genomic, epigenomic, and expression features in lung carcinoma in situ cases that regressed or progressed to invasive lung squamous cell carcinomas.

MSK researchers showed that high TMB may be associated with improved survival across tumor types, but the cut-offs for high and low status will vary based on histology.

The issue, discovered in late October, affected TMB reporting for up to 800 FoundationOne CDx tests during a short period of time and was quickly resolved.

The firms will partner on studies needed to support and secure US regulatory approval for the Elio tissue complete assay.

PGDx and KingMed plan to provide tumor mutational burden testing to pharmaceutical companies for clinical trials in China and Hong Kong.

The study authors cautioned that immunological signatures cannot be predicted from tumor mutational burden or microenvironment analysis of a single biopsy alone.

Researchers used an integrated analysis to find regulatory and transcriptional networks coinciding with specific DNA mutation subtypes in AML.

The study looked at chromatin accessibility in 410 TCGA tumors in the context of broader genomic features to explore functional effects of regulatory features.
