17/05/2021 — MENLO PARK, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE)
Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced genomics for cancer, today announced that the company will present at Biomarkers Week Online 2021.
The presentation, titled “ImmunoID NeXT Platform® for comprehensive tumor immunogenomics and advanced biomarker discovery,” will describe the Personalis universal cancer immunogenomics platform, ImmunoID NeXT™. Erin Newburn, MS, PhD, will present for Personalis. Dr. Newburn will provide an overview of the platform, which combines highly sensitive, exome-scale DNA and RNA sequencing with advanced analytics to provide a multidimensional view of the tumor and the tumor microenvironment (TME) from a single sample preparation. Dr. Newburn will review a case study in a cohort of 51 late-stage melanoma patients that demonstrates how the integration of neoantigen burden, HLA LOH, and Antigen Presentation Machinery (APM) mutational data formed a composite biomarker that more accurately predicted response to checkpoint blockade than other markers. Additionally, Dr. Newburn will highlight our NeXT Liquid Biopsy™, an exome-wide liquid biopsy approach combined with ImmunoID NeXT, to further explore critical areas of tumor biology.
ImmunoID NeXT is the first platform to enable comprehensive analysis of both a tumor and its immune microenvironment from a single sample. The ImmunoID NeXT Platform can be used to investigate the key tumor- and immune-related areas of cancer biology, consolidating multiple oncology biomarker assays into one and maximizing the biological information that can be generated from a precious tumor specimen.
Personalis is a co-sponsor of Biomarkers Week and will have representatives available to answer questions about the company’s cancer immunogenomics capabilities.
