Precision Medicine Studies Underway to Enable Dynamic Monitoring of Disease Progression and Response to Treatment
WALTHAM, MA – July 23, 2019 – BostonGene Corporation (BostonGene), a biomedical software company, today announced its partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) including the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
BostonGene’s solution will provide NCI and NIAID with an interpretation and visualization of a patient’s next-generation sequencing (NGS) information within the landscape of a patient’s genetic and genomic data at a desired level of complexity. The solution will identify all significant somatic alterations, evaluation of protein expression, estimation of tumor heterogeneity, prediction of neoantigens, tumor clonality, hereditary predisposition, viral infestation and pharmacogenomics among other molecular features. BostonGene generates a visually-appealing and self-explanatory tumor schematics, called MF Portrait™, depicting tumor activity, tumor cellular composition, activity of immune-microenvironment and other tumor-associated processes.
“Immuno- and targeted therapies are the most promising and rapidly developing treatments for cancer. BostonGene is thrilled to be partnering with NIH to provide sophisticated data analytics to produce viable treatment options personalized for each patient. Our mission is to treat the patient, not treat the diagnosis,” said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of BostonGene.
