Blood Test Identifies More Treatable Cancer Mutations Than Tissue Biopsy Alone

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

In one of the largest clinical studies to ever examine the impact of using a blood test to detect treatable mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), researchers from the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania found that they could identify significantly more mutations through liquid biopsy instead of a solid tissue biopsy alone. The findings also show that patients whose actionable mutations were detected by the blood based liquid biopsy responded favorably to targeted therapies.

UCI-led study reveals that cells involved in allergies also play a key role in survival

University of California, Irvine

In a UCI-led study, researchers found evidence that mast cells, an important group of immune cells typically associated with allergies, actually enable the body to survive fasting or intense exercise. The study was published today in Cell Metabolism.
