Biocept and University of California, Irvine to Study Blood-Based Liquid Biopsy Testing in Cancer Patients

Biocept Inc. announced a collaboration with the University of California, Irvine to evaluate biomarkers detected from blood-based versus invasive tissue biopsies in patients with metastatic cancers. The collaboration is aimed at validating the use of liquid biopsies to qualify patients for available targeted therapies and to establish a framework for serial monitoring of tumor mutations during cancer treatment to help identify early indicators of resistance to therapy. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend testing of key biomarkers in patients with lung cancer such as EGFR, ALK and ROS1. Test results from these biomarkers are used to qualify patients for targeted therapies that have demonstrated improved survival, such as Roche’s Tarceva® for patients with EGFR+ lung cancer and Pfizer’s Xalkori® for patients with ALK+ lung cancer. Current testing methods rely on tumor tissue from invasive biopsy and/or surgical tissue removal. Both procedures can entail significant patient risk and healthcare expense. Further, tissue biopsies can fail to contain adequate tumor tissue for biomarker analyses. In these instances, it is believed that a blood-based liquid biopsy, such as those offered by Biocept, can provide accurate biomarker information to better guide therapy.

Doctors at UC Irvine Set to Join Systemwide Strike

Doctors at UC Irvine's Student Health Center will strike for a second time to protest allegations of labor-law violations as they negotiate their first contract. The state wide strike against the University of California system by the Union of American Physicians and Dentists began in Northern California. No picketing is planned for UCI. The student health center treats up to 150 patients per day and will remain open, although routine appointments will be rescheduled. The union has said that UC has failed to negotiate in good faith or provide financial information the union needs for bargaining.
