Abstract:

The project aims to improve our prediction of tumor response for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer mCRC. Over the past year, we have been refining our tissue slice culture platform through standardization of protocol and modifications to culture conditions. We have developed a sensitivity index that allows for meaningful comparison between samples. Detailed analyses of tumor response to drugs are currently underway, along with advanced proteomic studies. Investigations using the slice culture to examine tumor response to immunotherapies have provided valuable insights towards novel strategies in the treatment of mCRC.
