SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Genome Insight, a leading precision medicine and genomics company, announced that their innovative whole genome sequencing (WGS) approach will be featured in six poster presentations at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023 in Orlando, FL. These posters cover a range of topics, including a study of integrative biomarker analysis of regorafenib plus nivolumab (RegoNivo) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), as well as a comparison between whole-genome sequencing-based and targeted panel sequencing approaches to precision oncology.
One notable presentation highlights that Genome Insight's WGS approach provides a more thorough analysis of genetic mutations in breast cancers with homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) than traditional BRCA gene testing. WGS can accurately classify HR status and identify which patients would benefit from polymerase enzymes (PARP) inhibitor treatment, making it a fast and effective screening tool.
"We are thrilled to present our WGS approach at the AACR annual meeting, which demonstrates the potential of our innovative approach to impact clinical decision-making for patients with cancer." - Dr. Young Seok Ju, CEO of Genome Insight
