Massive Bio, Inc., a leader in providing simplified and affordable access to precision oncology to cancer patients treated at community-based oncology practices, announced today that the first patient has been enrolled in a global registry for cancer patients evaluating the feasibility and clinical utility of an Artificial Intelligence-based precision oncology clinical trial matching tool powered by a virtual tumor board (VTB) program. This registry will assess its clinical impact on world-wide patients with advanced cancer to facilitate clinical trial enrollment (CTE), as well as financial impact.
Carriers of germ-line mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 from families at high risk for cancer have been estimated to have an 85 percent risk of breast cancer. Since the combined frequency of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations exceeds 2 percent among Ashkenazi Jews, we were able to estimate the risk of cancer in a large group of Jewish men and women from the Washington, D.C., area.
Continuing adjuvant aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy for 2 years beyond the current standard 5 years of treatment yielded the same level of recurrence prevention as continuing the treatment for an extra 5 years, according to a report at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
The purpose of the this study is to evaluate the clinical outcome of VEGFR-TKIs interruption in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) after achieving stable disease (SD) or better response.
Tumors continuously evolve to maintain growth; secondary mutations facilitate this process, resulting in high tumor heterogeneity. In this study, we compared mutations in paired primary and metastatic colorectal cancer tumor samples to determine whether tumor heterogeneity can predict tumor metastasis.
Docetaxel-based chemotherapy led to significant improvement in progression-free (PFS) and overall survival for patients with resectable gastric or gastroesophageal juncture (GEJ) cancer, according to a study reported at the European Society for Medical Oncology conference in Madrid.
