Comprehensive Genomic Profiling in Lung Cancer

In this Inside Precision Medicine Webinar, our distinguished guest, Dr. Sandip Patel from UCSD, discussed the importance of comprehensive genomic profiling in lung cancer and other solid tumors to direct optimal standard of care for cancer patients. Dr. Robin Thomas presented data from a study evaluating the AVENIO Tumor Tissue Comprehensive Genomic Profiling Kit.

Combining Bacteria and Targeted Therapy Promising in Lung Cancer Model

A combination of bacterial therapy with other treatment modalities may improve cancer treatment efficacy without additional toxicity, according to a report from Columbia Engineering researchers. They have developed a new approach for preclinical evaluation of bacterial therapies in lung cancer models.

New Therapeutic Target for Lung Cancer Found

A new study in mice by Northwestern Medicine researchers demonstrates and describes a new gene that is responsible for activating an aggressive subtype of small-cell lung cancer. Findings that may lead to improved approaches and treatments.

Increased Lung Cancer Tumor Burden Linked to Circadian Rhythm Disruption

Scripps researchers observed mice that were exposed to the irregular, shifting light patterns had an increased tumor burden of 68% and found the culprit to be the heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) family of proteins, not previously associated with circadian disruption.

Amgen KRAS Inhibitor Shows Benefits in Lung Cancer Phase III  

Lung cancer patients with a KRAS G12C mutation showed benefits from Amgen’s KRAS inhibitor Lumakras compared with docetaxel.
