Defining variances in healthy

Schütz E, Akbari MR, Beck J, Urnovitz H, Zhang WW, Bornemann-Kolatzki K, et al. Chromosomal instability in cell-free DNA is a serum biomarker for prostate cancer. Clin Chem 2015;61:239-48.

In order to discriminate between normal interindividual variabilities and traces from cancer, the situation in healthy individuals is of critical knowledge.

Predicting Treatment Outcomes in Immunotherapy

Weiss, G. et al. Tumor cell-free DNA copy number instability (CNI) to predict therapeutic response to immunotherapy prior to cycle 2. J ClinOncol 34, 2016 (suppl; abstr 3027).

We measured CNAs changes during treatment by computing a genomic copy number instability index (CNI) of cfDNA and Treg-specific demethylation region (TSDR) as measure for Tregs% of leukocytes compared to response.

Predicting Treatment Outcomes in Chemotherapy

Weiss, Glen J., et al. Changes in tumor cell-free DNA copy number instability (CNI) predict therapeutic response in metastatic cancers. Cancer Research 76.14 Supplement (2016): 3138-3138.

Gains and losses of chromosomal regions – as a hallmark of cancer – have been detected in plasma as copy number aberrations (CNAs), and for several cancers a relation to tumor size has been reported.

Prostate Cancer Blood Test

Schütz, E., et al. Chromosomal Instability in Cell-Free DNA Is a Serum Biomarker for Prostate Cancer. Clinical Chemistry 2015; 61: 239-248.

Tumor-specific cell free DNA (cfDNA) present in serum and plasma provides a real-time, easily accessible surrogate. We demonstrated variations in the number of cfDNA sequences circulating in the serum of patients with prostate cancer compared with healthy controls.

HPV Genotyping and Treatment Outcome Predictions

Urnovitz, HB et al. Detection of novel HPV mutations and chromosomal number imbalance (CNI) in laryngeal cancer using next-generation sequencing (NGS). J ClinOncol 32:5s, 2014 (suppl; abstr 6072).

The detection of novel HPV mutations and CNI analysis in a single NGS run on HPV-related diseases provides important information into viral-host dynamics while generating biomarkers that can be correlated with treatment outcomes.
