Clinical Services and Clinical Trials Support

  • Cancer mutation analysis using the Oncomine OCAv3 assay detecting mutations, gene amplifications and gene fusions in 161 cancer genes
  • DICER1 sequencing in support of the International PPB and Ovarian and Testicular Stromal Tumor Registries
  • Pathologist review and classification of disease pre- and post-treatment
  • Biomarker analysis

 

If you know someone who has been diagnosed with pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB), Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor or another type of DICER1 syndrome condition, we perform consultations free of charge through the International PPB Registry and the International Ovarian and Testicular Stromal Tumor Registry.

 

If you or someone you know has cancer, we have just launched the Oncomine Comprehensive Assay v3 (OCAv3). OCAv3 is the latest cancer genetic testing panel from Thermo | Life Technologies. Ask your oncologist about the importance of molecular classification of your tumor to determine if you qualify for a clinical trial.

Other Consulting Services

Oncomine Comprehensive Assay v3 for Cancer Mutation Testing

The Oncomine Comprehensive Assay v3 tests 161 genes for hotspot driver mutations, loss of function mutations in tumor suppressor genes, gene amplifications and gene fusions. With just a few unstained slides of tumor tissue, a full readout of the most important functional and therapeutically relevant genetic alterations can be produced within a week and at a cost lower than Foundation Medicine or Caris.

Pathologist Support for Clinical and Pre-clinical Trials

Our support for clinical and pre-clinical trials includes:

  1. Comparative analysis between treatment groups
  2. Review of companion diagnostic markers, i.e. PD-L1 immunos
  3. Detailed pathology reports
  4. Methods writing, figure legends
  5. Annotation of digital image slides
  6. Assist in grant preparations
