NGS of prostate cancer

Schütz, E. et al. Comparative analysis of the chromosomal origins of circulating nucleic acids in breast and prostate cancer. J ClinOncol 28:15s, 2010 (suppl; abstr 10505).

The aim of this study was to find signature CNA sequences from patients with breast cancer (BCa) or prostate cancer (PCa) compared to healthy controls, with respect to their predictive potential, as well as to provide new insights into tumor biology.

Breast Cancer cfDNA with NGS

Beck J, Urnovitz HB, Mitchell WM, Schütz E. Next generation sequencing of serum circulating nucleic acids from patients with invasive ductal breast cancer reveals differences to healthy and nonmalignant controls. Mol Cancer Res 2010; 8:335-42.

Chronix has first used the NGS technology for investigation into the use in breast cancer with very promising results.

NGS of cell-free DNA in animals

Gordon, Paul MK, et al. Disease-specific motifs can be identified in circulating nucleic acids from live elk and cattle infected with transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Nucleic Acids Research 37.2 (2009): 550-556.

In a 25-month time-course experiment, CNAs were isolated from blood samples of 24 elk (Cervuselaphus) orally challenged with chronic wasting disease (CWD) infectious material.Our results may become useful for the early diagnosis of TSE in live elk and cattle.

NGS of cell-free DNA in Healthy Humans

Beck, J. et al. Profile of the circulating DNA in apparently healthy individuals. Clin Chem. 2009; 55: 730-8.

Circulating nucleic acids (CNAs) have been shown to have diagnostic utility in human diseases. The use of mass sequencing and bioinformatics provides the basis for new diagnostic approaches that use CNAs as biomarkers for both malignant and nonmalignant diseases.
