Clinical Trial Landscape

The clinical trial landscape for precision medicine has shifted significantly in recent years towards multiple biomarkers being used to select patients for multiple therapies (umbrella studies) or include patients from multiple cancer types (basket studies).

When multiple biomarkers are required in these types of studies, this usually involves complex logistics with multiple vendors and excessive sample requirements which can increase time to manage and cost to run.

Almac’s Clinical Trial Solutions

Almac Diagnostic Services has created novel panel solutions for multi-arm clinical trials – enabling clients to evaluate multiple biomarkers from one sample, whilst saving precious tissue, time and cost.

Almac offer a full portfolio of DNA and RNA assays which can be run using dual extraction from one FFPE sample. When combined, the assays provide a comprehensive review of tumor biology, the results of which are presented in an easily interpreted patient molecular data report which can be tailored to client requirements.
