Molecular assays that involve measurement of expression levels of prognostic biomarkers, or co-expressed biomarkers, from a biological sample obtained from a prostate cancer patient, and analysis of the measured expression levels to provide information concerning the likely prognosis for said patient, and likelihood that said patient will have a recurrence of prostate cancer, or to classify the tumor by likelihood of clinical outcome or TMPRSS2 fusion status, are provided herein.


Patent
Genomic Health | Date: 2017-01-11

The invention concerns sensitive methods to measure mRNA levels in biopsied tumor tissues, including archived paraffin-embedded biopsy material. The invention also concerns breast cancer gene sets important in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and methods for assigning the most optimal treatment options to breast cancer patient based upon knowledge derived for gene expression studies.

Genomic Medicine is beginning to emerge into clinical practice. The National Human Genome Research Institute's Genomic Medicine Working Group consists of organizations that have begun to implement some aspect of genomic medicine (e.g., family history, systematic implementation of Mendelian disease program, pharmacogenomics, whole exome/genome sequencing). This article concisely reviews the working group and provides a broader context for the articles in the special issue including an assessment of anticipated provider needs and ethical, legal, and social issues relevant to the implementation of genomic medicine. The challenges of implementation of innovation in clinical practice and the potential value of genomic medicine are discussed. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

The present invention provides algorithm-based molecular assays that involve measurement of expression levels of genes from a biological sample obtained from a kidney cancer patient. The present invention also provides methods of obtaining a quantitative score for a patient with kidney cancer based on measurement of expression levels of genes from a biological sample obtained from a kidney cancer patient. The genes may be grouped into functional gene subsets for calculating the quantitative score and the gene subsets may be weighted according to their contribution to cancer recurrence.

Patent
Genomic Health and Fondazione Irccs Instituto Nazionale Dei Tumori | Date: 2015-11-25

The present invention provides sets of genes the expression of which is important in the prognosis of cancer. In particular, the invention provides gene expression information useful for predicting whether cancer patients are likely to have a beneficial treatment response to chemotherapy.


Patent
Genomic Health | Date: 2015-03-11

The invention relates to methods of depleting RNA from a nucleic acid sample. The RNA may be any RNA, including, but not limited to, rRNA, tRNA, and mRNA. The method is useful for depleting RNA from a nucleic acid sample obtained from a fixed paraffin-embedded tissue (FPET) sample. The method may also be used to prepare cDNA, in particular, a cDNA library for further analysis or manipulation.


Patent
Genomic Health | Date: 2016-01-29

The present invention relates to biomarkers associated with breast cancer prognosis. These biomarkers include coding transcripts and their expression products, as well as non-coding transcripts, and are useful for predicting the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence in a breast cancer patient, The present invention also relates to a novel method of identifying intergenic sequences that correlate with a clinical outcome.


The present disclosure provides gene and gene sets, the expression of which is important in the classification and/or prognosis of cancer, in particular of renal cell carcinoma.
