05:22 EDTTROVTrovagene to study transrenal BRAF mutations in primary and metastatic cancers
Trovagene announced that it has entered into a clinical collaboration with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to detect transrenal BRAF mutations in the urine of patients with advanced or metastatic cancers. Researchers will use Trovagene's proprietary transrenal DNA, or TrDNA, detection technology to evaluate BRAF mutation status in urine as compared to tissue biopsy. The study also calls for monitoring of mutation levels in the urine at planned intervals during and after treatment to assess outcomes including: response rate; stable disease; progression-free survival; and overall survival. Results from patients who receive therapy that reflects their BRAF mutation status will be compared to outcomes for patients who receive standard-of-care therapy regardless of mutation status.

11:08 EDTTROVTrovagene says diagnostic platform demonstrates ability to monitor mutations
Clinical study results presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting demonstrate the ability of Trovagene's molecular diagnostic platform to detect and monitor BRAF V600E mutations in cancer patients, the company said. Of the 33 patients enrolled in the study, Trovagene's BRAF V600E oncogene mutation assay was able to identify the mutation in 29 patients, or 88%, at any time point during the study, demonstrating a high level of concordance with tissue biopsy. In addition, 25 of the 33 patients, or 76%, were positively identified for the mutation with their first urine sample. Mark Erlander, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Trovagene, stated, "The concordance shown between our platform and tissue biopsy in this study are encouraging, especially when we consider that different patients will show response to treatments at different times."
