A liquid biopsy is a test for cancer, to which the material is obtained by simple blood extraction. The sample is then sent to an authorized laboratory.
The number of people diagnosed with tumors, especially malignant ones, is constantly increasing. There is also a rise in mortality rate due to delayed diagnosis and inappropriate treatment. Therefore, proper cancer diagnosis is very important. Early detection of a tumor makes it more probable that the patient will, finally, beat the cancer and recover. However, [...]
This was the busiest ASCO conference yet for Chronix Biomedical. Chronix booth was visited by clinical trial oncologists, international cancer research...
If you suspect you may have cancer, do not panic. The symptoms you are experiencing may point to another diagnosis. Immediately go to the doctor.
Chronix Biomedical reports a positive interim analysis of its ongoing validation study of its Copy Number Instability (CNI)-based therapeutic monitoring test in pancreatic cancer. The study compares the accuracy of Chronix’s CNI-based test at predicting a clinical response, as early as after the first cycle of chemotherapy compared to CA19-9, a commonly used biomarker.
Study finds CNI score to be a stronger predictor of time to recurrence in head and neck cancer than current method based on lymph node invasion. The study enrolled 54 patients undergoing surgery for this cancer type and evaluated the Chronix test as a predictor of time to progression in comparison with the current method based on the degree of tumour invasion of lymph nodes (pN status).
Chronix looks forward to working with this team of international pancreatic cancer experts.
This is the third year that Chronix is presenting its study results at ASCO — this year’s results are from a blinded prospective study validating the use of a CNI Monitor blood test to predict the treatment outcome of patients undergoing immunotherapy.
Chronix Biomedical is pleased to announce that results of a clinical trial of its liquid biopsy test have been accepted for presentation at the ASCO Annual Meeting.
The poster presentation will cover results of a study evaluating the Copy Number Instability (CNI) score as a prognostic test in head and neck cancer.
First study of a liquid biopsy to predict response to immunotherapy...
