Webinar On Demand: Exploring IO Signatures in Clinical Trial Genomic Data

Watch the webinar on demand:

Title: Translational Intelligence: Exploring IO Signatures in Clinical Trial Genomic Data

Duration: 30 minutes

You will learn how to:

  • Visualize gene alterations and tumor mutational burden (TMB) using heatmaps and tables, with subject and time point granularity. ​
  • Identify genes of interest and candidate signatures using visualization and statistical methods to relate clinical response data and gene expression data to regions of genomic alteration.​
  • Correlate genomic data with known signatures of immuno-oncology (IO) response through integrations with public data, knowledgebases and sponsor data.​
  • Define patient subgroups to generate deeper Read More →

Translational Intelligence: Synthesis and Integration of Genomics Data in Clinical Trials

April 21, 2021 — A modern clinical trial, with well-characterized subjects studied over periods of time, presents unmissable opportunities for sponsors to characterize mechanism of action, prioritize target pathways for their pipelines, and generate as much data as possible to support regulatory filings.

Delivering CDISC-Compliant Submissions of Biomarker and Specialty Lab Data

April 9, 2021 — With the rise of biomarkers used in clinical trials (e.g., prognostic, predictive, pharmacodynamic) and biomarker assay modalities (e.g. flow cytometry, multiplex protein detection, gene expression profiling), biomarker and specialty lab data are increasingly incorporated into FDA submissions. This data provides insights into key clinical objectives, including pharmacological effects, and drug safety and effectiveness.

Drug developers face operational challenges, however, in preparing complex, often unstructured, biomarker and specialty lab data in compliance with regulatory requirements.

Any study that began as of December 17, 2016 must use Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium Read More →

Folate pathway gene expression in metastatic colorectal cancer patients treated with arfolitixorin/5-FU-based chemotherapy

April 2, 2021 — Gene expression biomarkers can help predict clinical outcomes in response to treatment with pathway-targeting therapeutics, thereby helping to identify patient subgroups likely to respond.

In a collaboration with investigators at Isofol Medical AB, the QuartzBio team analyzed the correlation between expression of folate pathway genes and clinical outcomes in response to a combination therapy targeting this pathway in metastatic colorectal cancer, as part of a Phase III clinical trial.

They identified potential prognostic markers with clinical benefit, and presented the results at the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Read More →
