Study Description: Targeted cancer therapeutics will have a major impact on cancer treatment and survival. Unlike the majority of liquid biopsy technologies that analyze cell-free fragments of DNA (cfDNA) from plasma rather than tissue biopsy, the Cynvenio LiquidBiopsy® platform uniquely generates sample that is compatible with the same molecular analysis tools typically applied to both biopsy tissue and cfDNA. This study demonstrates that with this platform, legacy epithelial circulating tumor cell (CTC) populations can be used to detect alterations with 25% the efficiency of direct biopsy analysis in a cohort of 60 metastatic breast cancer samples. However, expanding the definition of cells to include cell populations with epithelial mesenchymal (EMT) profiles increments the number of informative samples 2-3 fold such that EMT CTC are informative almost as frequently as either cfDNA or FFPE. Analysis of both EMT CTC and cfDNA thus provides complimentary analysis of rare templates from blood that are both molecularly related to traditional biopsy samples. Analysis of multiple templates increases the likelihood of a successful analysis and expands the classes of biomarkers that can be evaluated.
TME is a network of clinicians, researchers, educators and companies whose core mission is to improve the quality and access to targeted breast cancer care by fostering high quality and comprehensive educational programs and resources. TME Research is an extension of the TME mission and designs, executes and optimizes accrual in breast cancer and breast health studies with a focus on performing these studies with community leaders.
