BostonGene to Showcase Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Recommendation Test
WALTHAM, MA, November 3, 2022
BostonGene today announced that an abstract has been accepted for online publication for the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2022 Annual Meeting & Expo, which will be held November 3 – 5, 2022, at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, AZ. BostonGene will also exhibit at booth 943.
The abstract, Co-occurrence of KRAS Q61K with Synonymous Mutations and Their Effect on RNA Expression, demonstrates the value of next-generation sequencing (NGS) in identifying the co-occurrence of KRAS p.Q61K with synonymous mutations and underscores the importance of RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) to further analyze their effects on gene expression and isoform composition. The research, conducted with Massachusetts General Hospital, will be available online only in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics.
BostonGene will showcase its innovative AI-based molecular and immune profiling platform for the discovery of significant correlations among tumor genomics, a patient’s immune system and the effectiveness of all available approved and investigational treatments, which leads to advances in personalized medicine and dramatically improved patients clinical outcomes. The BostonGene Tumor PortraitTM test uses DNA whole exome (WES) and RNA transcriptome (RNAseq) sequencing to detect genomic alterations such as single nucleotide variants (SNVs), indels, copy number alterations (CNAs), tumor mutational burden (TMB), microsatellite instability (MSI), expressed fusions, and frameshifts, and interrogates the expression levels of more than 20,000 genes, to identify actionable targets to inform treatment decision-making.
