SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT) today announced that two poster presentations taking place at SITC 2023, the annual meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer, in San Diego from November 3-5 will demonstrate the potential for using the company’s novel tools to help advance the development of immuno-oncology drugs. These tools allow for better characterization of the tumor microenvironment (TME), which can enable new insights into drug response and mechanisms of resistance.
“While immunotherapy drugs such as immune checkpoint inhibitors have been shown to induce remarkable, long-term responses in many cancer types, they remain ineffective for a majority of patients. There is a pressing need to understand drug response so scientists can develop treatments that will be effective for many more patients and types of cancer,” said Corinne Danan, Veracyte’s general manager of Biopharma and IVD Services. “These conference presentations will show that Veracyte’s Brightplex and Immunoscore IC tools can offer scientists a clearer view of the tumor microenvironment, as well as data that could inform immuno-oncology drug development.”
The following posters will be presented at the SITC 2023 meeting on Saturday, November 4, 2023:
Title: Deciphering the relationship between lymphocytes and macrophages within the tumor micro-environment using a workflow combining RNA transcripts detection and multiplex IHC on Brightplex®
