New Free-to-Access PDX NGS Data

An additional 32 new models with Whole Exome and RNA Sequencing have now been added to Champions TumorGraft Database.

Models include EGFR Ex19 insertion, MET multicopy amplified, RBM10, KRas and BRCA mutants.

There are now >770 model available for study with NGS data. Access our online database here.

Utilization of NOG-IL2 and NOG-IL15 for Human NK Cell Engraftment

Recent work by Champions' Research and Development team has shown that the transgenic NOG variants expressing human cytokines IL-15 or IL-2 can be utilized for engraftment of human NK cells.

Using either NK cells purified from PBMC donors, or CD34 Hematopoetic Stem Cells prolonged engraftment of functional NK cells was observed.

Additional information on Champions' humanized platforms can be found here.

Probabilistic Modeling of Personalized Drug Combinations from Integrated Chemical Screen and Molecular Data in Sarcoma

A recent publication by Dr Berlow at cc-TDI describes the development of a probabilistic computational modeling approach which integrates molecular sequencing data with functional assay data to develop patient-specific combination cancer treatments.

The use of Champion's In Vivo Pharmacology studies enabled the testing of in silico hypotheses. Read the publication here
