University of California - San Diego Key Developments

University of California San Diego and University of California San Francisco Launch New Cancer Cell Mapping Initiative

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and University of California, San Francisco, with support from a diverse team of collaborators, have launched an ambitious new project - dubbed the Cancer Cell Map Initiative or CCMI - to determine how all of the components of a cancer cell interact. In recent years, progress in genome sequencing has made it possible to decipher hundreds of mutations found in a patient's tumor. But in only a few cases do scientists understand how these mutations give rise to cancer or indicate what treatments to pursue. More puzzling still, the mutations found in each patient are almost always different - even though they can lead to the same type of cancer. It has long been thought that, while these mutations are unique to individuals, they hijack the same hallmark cancer pathways or genetic circuits. To interpret genomic data, researchers say the complete wiring diagram of the cell is needed, one that details all of the connections between normal and mutated genes and proteins. The CCMI will provide key infrastructure for the recently announced alliance between UC San Diego Health Sciences and San Diego-based Human Longevity Inc., which plans to generate thousands of tumor genomes from UC San Diego cancer patients. It will also leverage resources and information from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), including large databases of cancer genomes and pathways that are being developed in collaboration with the San Diego Supercomputer Center and UC Santa Cruz.

Trovagene Collaborates with University of california San Diego Moores Cancer Center to Demonstrate Clinical Utility of Detecting and Monitoring EGFR Mutations in Lung Cancer Patients

Trovagene, Inc. announced that it has entered into a clinical collaboration with University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center to determine the utility of detecting and monitoring EGFR mutations, using its Precision Cancer MonitoringSM platform. This large-scale study expands on the company's clinical programs in lung cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and City of Hope Medical Center. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide, and Trovagene is focused on providing an improved solution for the detection and monitoring of EGFR mutations in lung cancer patients.
