Analyzing Multiple Biomarkers with IHC: putting a 6-plex kit to the challenge

On November 16, 2021 Cerba Research and Akoya Biosciences held a webinar on how to analyze multiple biomarkers using Immunohistochemistry (IHC). The session was a deep dive in the Tissue Microenvironment (TME) with multiplex IF (Opal™) technology, discovering how to visualize, analyze, and quantify multiple phenotypes in situ.

As part of a long-standing collaboration with Akoya Biosciences, we agreed to test our pre-validated 6-plex panel kits, including one suitable for carcinoma immune-contexture investigations (CD8, CD68, FoxP3, PD1, PD-L1, PanCK). We were also able to put into practice Akoya’s pre-set imaging protocol on the Vectra® Polaris™ and related data analysis algorithm with inForm® software.

The Value of Biomarkers from Discovery to Commercialization

Why do some patients respond to therapy while others do not? The answer can be found in the concept of biomarkers: objective, measurable indicators of the
presence or severity of disease. Used for decades to aid medical diagnosis, researchers today use biomarkers in every phase of drug discovery and development.
There’s good reason. Biomarkers can triple drug development success rates, accelerating the availability of new therapeutics.

Precision Medicine in Practice for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

At the 16th Biomarkers UK Congress in November 2021, Rania Gaspo, PhD gave a talk on implementing precision medicine for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. How can you bring precision medicine into practice? What roles can Immunohistochemistry (IHC), Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), and ctDNA play?

Webinar: Turning Precision Medicine into Action in Immuno-Oncology

The challenges in immuno-oncology (I/O) drug development require deep scientific insights, generation and analysis of complex biological data, new state-of-the art technologies and both logistical & operational support across continents. The goal of immuno-oncology drug developers is to turn precision medicine into action, bringing life-changing therapies to patients.

In this webinar originally held on October 4 our experts discuss the use of Immunohistochemistry (IHC), Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), and Flow Cytometry (FCM) within immuno-oncology, and how they can offer the comprehensive insights required for I/O clinical trials.

A Biomarker Journey in Immuno-Oncology Utilizing Immunohistochemistry

In immuno-oncology (IO) research, biomarkers present the opportunity to identify and target the patient response to a potential new therapeutic, but how can it be integrated into a clinical development plan to increase the effectiveness of clinical trials?

With immunohistochemistry (IHC) technology, biomarkers can be identified in tumor biopsies. IHC provides the possibility to better understand biomarker mechanisms in the tumor’s environment. By implementing a robust biomarker validation process, sponsors will increase the success of biomarker integration in their clinical trials.
