Vanderbilt and Resolution Bioscience to present at AACR 2017 on longitudinal monitoring of cell-free DNA in patients with small cell lung cancer

Resolution Bioscience, Inc. is proud to announce the presentation by collaborators at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Northwestern University School of Medicine at today's AACR conference in Washington D.C.

Results: We detected somatic, disease-associated mutations in the cfDNA of 78% of patient samples (21/27). The allele frequency of cfDNA ranged from ≤0.5% to ≥85%. The most commonly mutated genes were TP53 and RB1, which were found in 17/27 and 10/27 samples, respectively. We also detected single nucleotide variants in PIK3CA (3/27) and PTEN (1/27) as well as copy number variants in MYC and MYCL1 (2/27). The observed mutant allele frequencies in longitudinal samples tracked closely with treatment responses. Strikingly, we found instances where the assay detected the reappearance of tumor-associated markers several weeks before clinical evidence of relapse was detected.

Conclusions: cfDNA sequencing allows for improved monitoring of disease burden, depth of responses to treatment, and timely warning of disease relapse in patients with SCLC.

Resolution Bioscience to participate at the FDA-AACR Liquid Biopsy Workshop

Resolution Bioscience is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming FDA-AACR Liquid Biopsies in Oncology Drug and Device Development Workshop on July 19th, 2016.   The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of relevant scientific advances in the field of liquid biopsies and of the regulatory environment that will support the translation of this emerging technology into improved patient care. The analysis of tumor-derived cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in plasma, a noninvasive method for detecting genetic alterations in tumors, holds considerable promise both for improving cancer diagnoses and monitoring and in drug development.

Resolution Bioscience's ctDx Blood-based NGS Platform used for Plasma Genotyping and Longitudinal Monitoring of ALK Fusion Positive Patients in Clinical Trial

— Resolution Bioscience today announced that its Resolution ctDx™ blood-based NGS platform was used to detect ALK fusions, ALK resistance mutations and other driver mutations in patients' circulating tumor DNA in a phase I/II clinical trial of the ALK inhibitor X-396 (ensartinib), Xcovery's lead drug candidate in development for the treatment of ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The results of this study will be presented at the 2016 ASCO meeting in Chicago and in a publication to follow.

Resolution Bioscience Receives CLIA Certification for its Diagnostic Laboratory and Launches CLIA-Certified Liquid Biopsy for Lung Cancer.

— Resolution Bioscience announced today the successful results from their CLIA validation of ctDx ALK™, a blood-based liquid biopsy for an ALK-gene fusion driver mutation found in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), the most common form of this cancer. Researchers or clinicians can now use the test to guide patients to personalized therapies and direct them into clinical trials with a standard blood sample.

The Department of Health, the CLIA authority in Washington State, surveyed the laboratory and gave its highest assessment of “no deficiencies.”

Resolution Bioscience announces successful collaboration on a novel, non-invasive, targeted NGS test for lung cancer

First clinically actionable, comprehensive liquid biopsy assay that can discover gene fusions that drive lung cancer.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science and Resolution Bioscience, Inc. today announced the successful completion of a collaborative agreement to co-develop a novel, blood-based, clinic ready, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) assay for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The collaboration is the first to demonstrate the successful sequencing of clinically actionable ALK, RET, and ROS1 fusions in blinded plasma samples and highlights the ability to discover all types of actionable mutations in a single assay from a standard blood draw. The results will be presented at the 2015 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) meeting on April 19th and in a joint publication to follow.
