Research Poster Presented at the New Jersey Cancer Retreat for New Cancer Serum Biomarker Panel

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ, June 7, 2017 -- Biotech Support Group presented a poster describing a biomarker panel of cancer dysregulation derived from serum proteomic profiles, at the New Jersey Cancer Retreat held on May 25, 2017 in New Brunswick, NJ.

In brief, while the landscape of cancer-associated DNA mutations has supported the initial concepts for liquid biopsy, it is now overwhelmingly apparent that throughout cancer progression, there are necessary adaptive microenvironments to support metastatic disease. We now present evidence that some of the essential interactions between stroma and proliferating cells can in part, be monitored through the protein response that tracks into the vascularized tumor and re-proportions the extracellular proteins (serum) found in the general blood circulation. These patent pending proteomic patterns can now be reported as a Stroma Liquid Biopsy™.

Here we demonstrate that our serum proteome separations workflow produces very unique data that cannot be obtained by other methods. Our next goal is to associate this knowledge and data to establish relationships with client supplied samples characterized for progressive disease or response to therapies, ultimately achieving biomarkers useful in the clinic. Consequently this cancer biomarker profile can now be commercialized for many different applications including early detection, oncology drug development and personalized therapy decisions .” states Swapan Roy, Ph.D., President and Founder of Biotech Support Group.
