IMPROVING THE CANCER BATTLE WITH INTEGRATED GENOMICS
The fight against cancer has been boosted tremendously since the discovery of checkpoint inhibitor therapy – a form of cancer immunotherapy where key regulators of the immune system are blocked so that immune cells can attack the tumor. However, the level of patient response to currently approved therapies is quite variable, restricting the chances of success of a checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Not knowing whether a patient will respond to immunotherapy and if there are specific molecular features that can help predict a response is a substantial limitation to immune checkpoint inhibitor drugs.
