#GI21 time for another #Tweetorial🧵 on


in a very 🎯 “Target-rich” disease

~3️⃣0️⃣% actionable findings

Interestingly we found more #FGFR🧬 fusions on liquid🩸than tissue 🔬. #OncoAlert
🧵2️⃣ #GI21
#Cholangiocarcinoma is the poster child of actionable aberrations & truly a 🎯“Target-rich” disease.

We focused on %numbers for aberrations for which there’s either an ✅approved drug, guideline endorsement, #clinicaltrials or even off-label reports/cases.👇🏾
🧵3️⃣ #GI21
We often don’t think of #ctDNA based platforms to be as sensitive for detecting fusions; when present it is real & an actionable finding.

Interestingly we found #FGFR🧬fusions
💭 maybe because of selection bias. #ctDNA filling the void. #OncoAlert

Background: Liquid biopsies have the potential to become an invaluable tool in the management of #cancer.
That’s why, it is important to generate solid evidence to define areas in which they can guide treatment decisions.

@OncoAlert 🚨 #LiquidBiopsies #PrecisionMedicine
Accordingly, this paper by @LizzySmyth1 & team in @myESMO @Annals_Oncology on the prognostic value of longitudinal ctDNA 🧬💉 assessment in #EsophagealCancer #esocsm addresses a very relevant question.
@OncoAlert 🚨 #PrecisionMedicine #LiquidBiopsies…

✅ 97 patients that underwent neo-adjuvant chemotherapy & resection with a total of 245 available samples were identified in 🇬🇧 OCCAMS consortium dataset.

✅ Samples were analysed w a pan #cancer ctDNA panel

👀 👇🏾at the number of #clinicaltrials cropping up in this space‼️
We have 2🇺🇸studies open. #CRCSM #WorldGI2020
#WORLDGI2020 This is 🆒 ☢️ 32-P EUS-guided implantation in #pancreascancer #PANCSM @myESMO @WCGIC @Annals_Oncology.

Still miles to go. OS median of 16 months pointing again to the systemic nature of disease. Need to piggyback these local approaches to better systemic. #OncoAlert
