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. [...]
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).
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.
