Precision oncology approaches have made great strides harnessing individual tumor mutation profiles to guide targeted therapy choices. However, deeper molecular insights are needed to improve personalized treatment decisions that are tailored to specific molecular characteristics of a tumor. Integrating gene expression analysis in personalized oncology provides an additional level of insight that cannot be provided by genomic data alone.
These analyses include evaluating expressed mutations and drug targets, novel gene fusions, clinically relevant signatures, and the tumor immune microenvironment (TME).
Comprehensive molecular tumor analysis (CMTA) is an NGS-based tumor diagnostic test developed by Alacris Theranostics. The test integrates whole exome and transcriptomic sequencing (WES and RNAseq) and is deployed as an end-to-end accredited diagnostic platform from tumor sample uptake (FFPE or frozen) to personalized clinical interpretation reports. Designed to serve all cancer patients, CMTA is a tumor-agnostic test that displays a unique molecular view of each sample and is particularly well-suited to refractory cancers with complex patterns or tumors of unknown origin.
In this webinar, Alacris Theranostics will discuss the benefits of comprehensive tumor profiling in clinical settings and present the strategy implemented in their bioinformatics pipeline to identify cancer-relevant somatic events. In addition, the diagnostic company will share how they use QIAGEN Clinical Insight (QCI) Interpret to annotate variants and identify potential therapeutic entry points.
