Germline Testing After Tumor Sequencing Uncovers Clinically Actionable Variants

Genetic counseling and germline testing are recommended for patients with cancer who have suspected hereditary disease based on each patient’s presentation and family history. Separately, tumor DNA sequencing is increasingly used, most often in patients with advanced disease. More...

Novel CTC Culture Method Developed to Study Metastatic Cancer

Cancer metastasis is responsible for most cancer-associated death. During metastasis, cells that escape the primary tumor into the circulatory system are known as circulating tumor cells (CTCs). More...

Comprehensive Molecular Profiling Matches Pediatric Patients to Therapies

A major challenge of using a comprehensive profiling approach for precision medicine is separating pathogenic from non-pathogenic molecular changes within a tumor. More...

Urine-Based Liquid Biopsy Test Detects Urothelial Carcinoma

Urine cytology, which is widely used to screen for bladder cancer, has high specificity but lacks sensitivity, especially for low-grade cancers. Cystoscopy, while more accurate than cytology, is an invasive procedure with added costs and potential complications for the patient. More...

Breath Test Developed for Head and Neck Cancer Diagnosis

Breath testing is a noninvasive way to help doctors diagnose a number of conditions. By analyzing the breath, the physicians can measure the amount of certain gases, allowing doctors to arrive at a diagnosis quickly and accurately. More...

Lymphocytic Infiltration Explored as Biomarker for Stable Colorectal Tumors

Identifying stage II patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) at higher risk of progression is a clinical priority in order to optimize the advantages of adjuvant chemotherapy while avoiding unnecessary toxicity. A remarkable feature of CRC is the difference in prognosis of patients diagnosed at early versus late stages of the disease. More...

Hematological Biomarkers Predict Prognosis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an inflammation-related cancer, where non-resolving inflammation contributes to its development and progression. Peripheral inflammatory cells have been shown to be associated with the prognosis of various types of cancer. More...
