Pathline Begins Using GenomOncology Clinical Workbench
News Jul 13, 2016
GenomOncology has announced that Pathline Emerge has recently went live with the GO Clinical Workbench for rapid analysis and reporting of their next-generation sequencing tests. “Pathline Emerge takes a multi-disciplinary approach to evaluate specific types of cancer to support personalized medicine. Our full-service pathology laboratory was one of the first to obtain New York State approval for clinical NGS testing. As the demand for NGS testing and personalized medicine continues to grow and more information becomes available, better solutions are needed to quickly and thoroughly analyze the burgeoning amounts of data,” said Michael Lorenzo, VP of Operations at Pathline Emerge.
“With this in mind, Pathline Emerge partnered with GenomOncology for a software solution, which allows us to streamline our workflow and deliver robust clinical reports. The GO Clinical Workbench will allow Pathline Emerge to scale efficiently while also maintaining compliance.” The GO Clinical Workbench provides a configurable workflow for labs to manage relevant molecular testing results from NGS and other test modes, such as FISH, karyotyping, RT-PCR, IHC, etc. Specifically, labs can perform quality control analysis, evaluate all variants, manage confirmations, amendments, addendums, dynamically generate and sign-out a clinical report.
GenomOncology’s GO Clinical Workbench for analysis and reporting is the flagship product within the GO Precision Medicine Portfolio™, a full suite of tools designed to help healthcare institutions implement, perform, and maximize the benefits of precision medicine. The tools are installed behind the institution’s firewall and are configured to each laboratory’s specific needs.
“Today’s Molecular Pathology lab faces many challenges. Our goal is to enable our Laboratory partners to create value. One key area of value creation is being able to provide Oncologists with reports that provide decision support over integrated data sets. Therapy decisions can change depending on co-occurring genomic aberrations and it’s important for the oncologist to understand these potential changes. For example, combining gene fusion data, with karyotype results, SNV’s and Indels to provide an integrated interpretative report that proposes therapeutic options and suggests appropriate clinical trials,” added Manuel Glynias, President and CEO of GenomOncology.
Tight junctions are multi-protein complexes that serve as barriers in epithelial tissues such as the skin or lining of the gut. Loss of a specific tight junction barrier protein, claudin 18, occurs in the majority of gastric cancer patients and is correlated with poor prognosis in patients with advanced gastric cancer.READ MORE
Policies, economic systems, and marketing practices that promote the consumption of energy-dense, nutrient-poor food, changing behavioral patterns that couple high total energy intake with insufficient physical activity, and human-built environments that amplify these factors are driving a worldwide rise in excess body weight, according to a new report.READ MORE
A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.READ MORE
