Liquid Biopsy Can Help Predict Outcomes in Metastatic Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

By

A clinically relevant “liquid biopsy” test can be used to profile cancer genomes from blood and predict survival outcomes for patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), according to new research published by a multi-institutional team of researchers.1,2 Although TNBC represents just 10-15 percent of all breast diagnoses, the disease is responsible for 35 […]

Liquid Biopsies Find Distinct Genomic Profiles in Most Patients with Carcinoma of Unknown Primary

By

New research suggests that a simple blood test to evaluate circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) can correctly identify distinct genomic profiles with potentially treatable targetable alterations in patients with carcinoma of unknown primary (CUP).1 Identifying the origin of cancers historically referred to as a cancer of unknown primary it has been problematic to determine how to […]
