Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 ottobre 2019

BostonGene Corporation (BostonGene), a Boston, Mass-based biomedical software company, today announced a master agreement with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to collaborate on multiple research projects.
BostonGene’s solution will provide Washington University oncologists at Siteman Cancer Center with detailed analysis, interpretation and visualization of big data obtained from cancer patient’s genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and imaging tests. The solution identifies all significant somatic alterations, evaluates protein expression, computes tumor clonality, tumor heterogeneity, tumor microenvironment cell type composition, hereditary predisposition, viral infestation, pharmacogenomics and predicts neoantigens for personalized vaccine development among other molecular features. BostonGene generates a visually-appealing and self-explanatory tumor schematics, called MF PortraitTM, elegantly depicting tumor activity, tumor cellular composition, activity of immune-microenvironment and other tumor-associated processes.“We’re collaborating with BostonGene to evaluate how its technology can help us identify the best treatments for patients based on the underlying characteristics of their cancers, with the goal of increasing survival. The company’s analytics and integration of scientific and clinical knowledge is aimed at complementing and empowering the precision medicine approach for individual cancer patients,” said Todd Fehniger, MD/PhD, a Washington University medical oncologist who treats patients at Siteman Cancer Center.
