This online seminar provides an overview of the use of liquid biopsies for cancer recurrence monitoring with a particular focus on colorectal cancer.

Analysis of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) has the potential to improve detection and monitoring of cancers in order to significantly impact patient outcomes. This is especially important for cancers with a high rate of recurrence, such as colorectal cancer, where between 30 percent and 40 percent of cases recur. However, the only currently available monitoring blood test misses 74 percent of resectable recurrences.

Rhythm Pharmaceuticals and Genomenon will discuss their efforts to assemble a database of mutations associated with rare genetic disorders of obesity, and how this was optimized to facilitate a deep understanding of the variant landscape of melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R)-pathway genes. This database may help identify MC4R-pathway deficient individuals who might benefit from future precision therapies.
