Molecular subtypes of common pancreatic cancers can be predicted from tumour characteristics

Gene expression analysis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) tumours enables clinicians to stratify patients into molecular subgroups and select treatments that are best suited to each type; however, molecular subtyping remains cost-prohibitive and is not yet part of routine cancer care.

Whole genome and transcriptome sequencing uncovers biomarkers predicting response to immune checkpoint inhibitors

The development of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), a type of cancer therapy that helps the immune system fight tumours, was one of the most significant milestones in cancer treatment in the last decade. While ICI therapy has been used to treat different cancer types, it is not universally effective and relapsed disease occurs. A robust strategy for predicting which patients are likely to respond to ICIs is needed, enabling clinicians to select the best course of treatment for each patient.

POG researchers uncover potential biomarkers for the treatment of advanced stage breast and colorectal cancer

Cancer is a disease of the genome, and research has shown that the genomic alterations in a tumour influence treatment response and failure. For advanced-stage breast and colorectal cancer, tumour sequencing has now uncovered key alterations that can guide clinicians in determining the best course of treatment for their patients.
