Expanding the search: genetic testing reveals new targets, treatment options for cancer patients

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Researchers in Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine are using new genetic tests developed at Mayo Clinic to find more effective therapies for cancer patients who have not benefited from standard treatment and are running out of options. The new tests look at a broader range of genetic characteristics than many standard tests. As a […]

Tracing the Lineage of Lung Cancer Tumors

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

    A diagnostic test based on chromosomal rearrangements can trace the lineage of lung cancer to determine whether two separate lung cancers in the same patient are independent tumors or a tumor that has spread to another region of the lung, a Mayo Clinic study has found. For patients with multiple tumors, that distinction […]

Effective Methods for Combating Aggressive Forms of Lung Cancer Publication

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

  According to a recently published article in the journal Cancer Research, a new study from the Center for Individualized Medicine has found tumor sequencing of several different lung cancers and their surrounding tissue complicates the prevailing theory of linear lung cancer progression and offers new insights for management of this deadly cancer. Sequencing results […]

Announcing Oncospire Genomics

By

With lung cancer accounting for more cancer-related deaths each year than the next four leading cancer types combined, the need for earlier diagnosis and better treatment options is clear. Oncospire Genomics, the recently formed joint venture between Cancer Genetics, Inc and Mayo Clinic, aims to shift the tide in lung cancer treatment. The goal of […]

ASCL1 And RET Expression Defines Clinically Relevant Subgroup Of Lung Adenocarcinoma

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

A recent publication, featuring the Director of the Biomarker Discovery Program at the Center for Individualized Medicine at Mayo Clinic, George Vasmatzis,¬†examining the role of ASCL1 in the neuroendocrine¬†differentiation of lung adenocarcinoma. The clinical significance of neuroendocrine differentiation in lung adenocarcinoma, and the most appropriate biomarkers for this assessment, has long been debated. In the […]

Discovering Smoker’s Lung Cancer Biomarker

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

Researchers at Mayo Clinic recently found that a specific pair of proteins may be a successful prognostic biomarker for identifying smoking-related¬†lung cancers. The clinical significance of neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation in lung adenocarcinoma (AD), and the most appropriate biomarkers for this assessment, has long been debated. In the absence of a gold standard, investigators have most […]
