The Jackson Laboratory Key Developments

The Jackson Laboratory and Seven Bridges Collaborate to Build Centralized Data Platform to Advance Cancer Research

The Jackson Laboratory and Seven Bridges announced a new collaboration to build an NCI-funded data platform to accelerate translational research using patient-derived tumor xenograft (PDX) datasets. This joint initiative will establish a PDX Data Commons and Coordinating Center to support PDXNet, a collaborative network that coordinates large-scale testing for preclinical therapeutic cancer drugs in PDX trials. In PDX trials, tumor models are created using fragments of a patient's tumor that can be propagated in mice to supply test tissue that can be used for research. Researchers can use the models to test multiple drugs, alone and/or in various combinations, and glean insight into drug responses, providing a clinical trial roadmap for piloting treatments for patients with tumors of similar molecular profiles. The PDX approach has gained significant traction in the cancer research community due to its increased precision in measuring drug-response. In 2016, the NCI decided to refocus its repository of cancer models, which has long been dominated by the NCI60 panel of human cancer cell lines, to include PDX models for cancer drug screening.
