H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute Key Developments
Cancer Genetics, Inc. Enters into Multi-Year Research Collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center for Genomics-Based Prediction of Side Effects Associated with Chemotherapy
May 6 15
Cancer Genetics, Inc. announced that it has entered into a series of collaborative studies with leading researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. The studies, led by Moffitt researchers Heather Jim, PhD, Diane Portman, MD, Howard McLeod, PharmD, and Gillian Bell, PharmD will examine a number of genetic variants as predictors for the most common side effects associated with chemotherapy treatment. Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is a significant clinical challenge experienced by over 50% of patients receiving chemotherapy, even when general-purpose prophylactic anti-emetic therapies are prescribed according to clinical guidelines. The first of these collaborative studies will seek to validate and improve existing risk prediction indices of acute and delayed CINV in patients undergoing chemotherapy. This prospective study will determine whether the inclusion of variations in genes involved in the metabolism of anti-emetic drugs improves the ability to accurately predict which patients are more likely to experience side effects from chemotherapy regimens. Tailored anti-emetic treatment in patients at risk of CINV has the potential to significantly reduce incidence, while decreasing CINV-related medical visit costs, which average $40,001 per patient. A second collaboration will examine the role of individual genetic variants in the effectiveness of pain control in cancer. Pain is one of the most difficult symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment. Opioid and non-opioid analgesics and co-analgesics are frequently used to improve pain control, but patients vary considerably in their response to these drugs. This study will include Moffitt cancer patients treated in the outpatient setting and will seek to identify genetic associations for patient-reported pain outcomes.
