2020 AACR: Quantification of tumor-infiltrating immune cell populations with an augmented transcriptome

2020 AACR: Quantification of tumor-infiltrating immune cell populations with an augmented transcriptome Comprehensive characterization of the tumor and tumor microenvironment (TME) can improve our understanding of tumor progression and treatment outcomes. In particular, quantification of the immune infiltrate has the potential to inform mechanisms of immune escape and predict response to therapy. Standard experimental [...]

2020 AACR: Precision neoantigen discovery using a pan-predictive machine learning model integrated into ImmunoID NeXT Platform®

2020 AACR: Precision neoantigen discovery using a pan-predictive machine learning model integrated into ImmunoID NeXT Platform® Technologies for neoantigen discovery are critical for developing personalized cancer vaccines and neoantigen-based biomarkers. Precision neoantigen discovery entails comprehensive detection of tumor-specific genomic variants and accurate prediction of MHC presentation of epitopes originating from such variants. Our ImmunoID [...]

2020 AACR: Sensitive HLA loss of heterozygosity detection reveals allele-specific neoantigen expansion as resistance mechanism to anti-PD-1 therapy

2020 AACR: Sensitive HLA loss of heterozygosity detection reveals allele-specific neoantigen expansion as resistance Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in the HLA locus is increasingly being recognized as an important mechanism of immune escape and a proposed biomarker for immunotherapy response. Neoantigens that bind to a deleted HLA allele will no longer be presented to [...]

2020 ASCO: Exome scale liquid biopsy characterization of putative neoantigens and genomic biomarkers pre- and post anti-PD-1 therapy in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

2020 ASCO: Exome scale liquid biopsy characterization of putative neoantigens and genomic biomarkers pre- and post anti-PD-1 therapy in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Background: The reduced scope, and number of genes profiled by typical liquid biopsy panels can result in missed biomarkers including neoantigens, which may change with treatment, as [...]

2019 SITC: Comprehensive profiling of tumor-immune interaction in anti-PD-1 treated melanoma patients reveals subject-specific tumor escape mechanisms

2019 SITC: Comprehensive profiling of tumor-immune interaction in anti-PD-1 treated melanoma patients reveals subject-specific tumor escape mechanisms Checkpoint inhibitor therapy has demonstrated meaningful antitumor activity for many patients, though the majority fail to achieve complete response. Thus, it is of particular interest to identify biomarkers and mechanisms that promote positive response to immunotherapy. In [...]
