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.

Minimal Residual Disease in Breast Cancer

Urnovitz, HB et al. Modulation of breast cancer cell-free DNA with surgical resection. J ClinOncol 31, 2013 (suppl; abstr 11060).

In this study, we sought to determine whether cfDNA decreases after surgery in patients with operable invasive breast cancer. Serum was collected before and 1-4 weeks after surgery from 16 breast cancer patients and also from 24 age and gender matched controls.

Breast Cancer cfDNA with NGS

Beck, J. et al. Next Generation Sequencing of Serum Circulating Nucleic Acids from Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer Patients Reveals Differences to Healthy and Non-malignant Controls. Mol. Cancer Res. 2010; 8: 385-92.

Circulating nucleic acids (CNA) isolated from serum or plasma are increasingly recognized as biomarkers for cancers.We report specific DNA-transposable element sequences that could discriminate all stages of invasive ductal breast carcinoma with significant specificity and sensitivity.
