2019 AACR: Applying immunopeptidomics and machine learning to improve neoantigen prediction for therapeutic and diagnostic use

Applying immunopeptidomics and machine learning to improve neoantigen prediction for therapeutic and diagnostic use Neoantigens are increasingly critical in immuno-oncology as therapeutic targets for neoantigen-based personalized cancer vaccines (PCVs) and as potential biomarkers for immunotherapy response. However, optimizing technologies for identifying neoepitopes that are more likely to provoke an immune response remains an important [...]

2019 AACR: A comprehensive, highly accurate genomics platform for precision immunotherapy: Simultaneously characterize tumors and the TME from a single FFPE sample

A comprehensive, highly accurate genomics platform for precision immunotherapy: Simultaneously characterize tumors and the TME from a single FFPE sample While the success of checkpoint blockade has been hugely promising, it’s increasingly apparent that predicting response to immunotherapies and developing new ones requires a more comprehensive approach to tumor immunogenomic profiling. We believe this [...]

2019 AACR: Development and validation of an accurate exome-scale cfDNA detection platform

2019 AACR: Development and validation of an accurate exome-scale cfDNA detection platform Neoantigens are increasingly used as biomarkers for response to checkpoint blockade therapy and as therapeutic targets for neoantigen-based personalized cancer vaccines. Accurate identification of neoantigens requires comprehensive exome and transcriptome sequencing of both a tumor biopsy and a matched normal sample to [...]
