Cutting-Edge Cancer Diagnostic Test to Reach Milestone by Helping with Detection at Early Stage

Liquid Biopsy Market

According to a recent news, liquid biopsy exhibits potential for foreseeing survival outcomes in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). This cutting-edge cancer diagnostic test utilizes biofluids such as urine, plasma, cerebral spinal fluid and blood for detecting cancer. Liquid biopsy also helps in detecting cancer at the initial stage. Blood sample is broadly utilized for diagnosis of several cancers such as leukemia, breast cancer and lung cancer, whereas CSF and urine samples are utilized for diagnosis of brain and prostate cancer. As per a research firm, Future Market Insights, there is increase in the prevalence of breast and lung cancer across the globe. The firm also anticipates that global market for liquid biopsy will exhibit a significant CAGR of 20.6% by 2027-end. The market is expected to observe rapid growth due to increasing preferences of patients for non-invasive diagnostic techniques and rising demand for liquid biopsy by oncologists.

Liquid Biopsy for Patient Populace Suffering From Metastatic Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

The small-coverage genome-wide series of cfDNA (cell-free DNA) from plasma holds the potential to profile cancer genomes from the blood and helps in predicting survival results for patients suffering from mTNBC (metastatic triple-negative breast cancer). cfDNA is the DNA from both normal and cancerous cells and is shed in the bloodstream. cfDNA’s tumor fraction has showed itself in a recent study as a self-regulating prognostic biomarker in metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. Tests were undertaken in individuals and the results showed that the tumor fraction in around 64% of cohort was more than or equal to 10% and that was correlated to reduced survival results in patients suffering from mTNBC. The approximate survival period of patients suffering from mTNBC, according to the study was nearly 6.4months compared to patients suffering from lesser tumor fractions who have nearly 15.9 months of survival period.

Holistic Benefits of Genome-Wide Data

Genome-wide data benefitted in identification of specific abnormal genes which is improved more in mTNBC cases compared to primary cases. Researchers revealed that abnormal genes is related to survival results in patient populace suffering from mTNBC. Usually, a tissue biopsy is obtained for performing the entire genome sequencing tests which would help in revealing the potential DNA-level alterations that is influencing the specific cancer of a patient. For patients suffering from metastatic breast cancer, tissue biopsy is considered as painful and risky. Therefore, genomic study is done from blood which helps in diagnosing a patient’s particular cancer genomic features in a lesser invasive way. The incidence of loss or gain was compared by researchers for 25 cancer-correlated genes usually improved in breast cancer amongst metastatic less-coverage cfDNA sequencing & primary tumor section sequencing. Chemotherapy was provided to every patient before the collection of blood, adjuvant anthracycline, primarily neoadjuvant & taxane-based chemotherapy.

Liquid biopsy will have a major impact in the cases of breast cancer. Liquid biopsy has helped in improving disease tracking and required treatments, especially in clinics. Genome-wide data is considered as an easier, faster and reliable technique for detection of developing disease and tumor endurance.
