Excited to share our TRACERx nature publication on circulating tumor DNA (#ctDNA, #MRD) detection in resectable lung cancer led by @AbboshChris, @AFrankell, @juditkisistok, Thomas Harrison, Aaron Garnett, @nbirkbak and @NickyMcGranahan 👇👇👇 Tweetorial🧵…
🔬Circulating tumor DNA is a powerful biomarker that can guide and monitor treatment response in early-stage lung cancer patients. Technologies enabling ctDNA detection and characterization are advancing rapidly but we need to understand how to use them in the clinic…
👥 Through collaboration with scientists at @TheCrick and @uclcancer, @AstraZeneca and @Invitae, we developed and validated an anchored-multiplex PCR approach ctDNA detection in 197 patients who donated over 1000 plasma samples to TRACERx.

I just attended one of the biggest cancer meetings in the world. #ASH22 @ASH_hematology

For my followers here is a snapshot of the incredible progress happening with cancer treatment. It’s good. Thread.
1/ There is a revolution in cancer therapy that uses the power of our own immune system to fight cancer cells:

CAR-T cells
Bispecific antibodies

Both these approaches have already produced spectacular results in many cancers and we are just starting.
2/ CAR-T cells: take your own immune system cells out, engineer them to target a specific cancer, and then put them back in the body to go kill the cancer cells. A few CAR-T products have already been FDA approved. Many more to come.… Image

Delighted to share our new study… introducing PhasED-Seq out today @NatureBiotech.
A fantastic collaboration from @StanfordMedicine led by Dave_Kurtz & Joanne Soo with @max_diehn to help transform #cancer interception & monitoring by improving #LiquidBiopsy #ctDNA detection of #MRD.
For many cancers & nearly all currently available techniques, the impressive KM plots of #ctDNA #MRD immediately after definitive Rx w/ curative-intent unfortunately still miss ~50% of all events which occur in the MRD-negative subset, thus having modest NPV.

#JPM2021 #AdaptiveBiotech My Highlights: my interest lies in their angle on #LiquidBiopsy for #EarlyCancerDiagnostics, but they also deal with Life Science Research and Drug Discovery.
Their T-Detect method is aiming at #MRD monitoring, here shown in a slide that relates it to their ImmunoSEQ T-MAP Cancer mapping tool, and their Identification of clinical TCR candidates.
They stress the T-cell Diagnostics angle in different slides. I recall only @freenome explicitly mentioning immune-profiling from the group of companies in early cancer diagnostics and #epigenomics profiling (Grail/GH/Thrive/Freenome/BioStar/CEGX/etc.)

JPM Healthcare Daily Roundup #JPM2021

The first day of the conference hasn't disappointed, especially if you're a fan of talking cubes. What is this mysterious object and what sorcery is inside?

See disclosures at the end.
The Tempus One, meant to be carried in a doctor's coat or sat at the bedside, is a physical manifestation of @TempusLabs' genomic and phenotypic data-lake. Oncologists can ask One all sorts of questions regarding their patients, though I'm unsure if it'll (...)
(...) just reflex you to a computer after a sufficiently difficult question. I'm sure we'll learn more soon. Has this sort of form-factor been tried before?

I'm just hoping it has adjustable humor/honesty settings like TARS from Interstellar.

Moving right along.

Bird’s-eye view 👁 on what to look out for @WCGIC #WorldGI2020.
Opening remarks on important data 📺 @myESMO - by Dr. Eric Van Cutsem @UZLeuven.
🟩Good to see more #PrecisionMedicine🧬
🟥#Immunotherapy #Immuno-#oncology
🟦TNT & other chemo strategies
@Annals_Oncology #OncoAlert
🆕#ctDNA #liquidbiopsies 🩸🧬
👀 👇🏾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
