Precision Medicine for Patients With Identified Actionable Mutations

2019-10-07 08:56:52 | BioPortfolio


The goal of the current pragmatic trial is to evaluate the impact of a simple method of selecting a treatment approach for identified mutations on participants' progression free survival (PFS). The study also intends to collect information on barriers that investigators encounter when prescribing treatment options using the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) reports. Additionally, patients' quality of life will be measured before, after, and during treatment.

Patients will be followed until death for monitoring survival study endpoints.


Primary Objective:

• To estimate the progression-free ratio, as defined by the progression-free survival time on study treatment divided by the progression-free survival time on the last treatment received by patient, for an identified actionable mutation, who will be treated with an off-label treatment off label therapy based on a simplified selection methodology using the Next Generation Sequencing results.

Secondary Objectives:

- To estimate patient response rate on off-label treatments for actionable mutations based on Next Generation Sequencing results.

- To estimate overall survival (OS) for patients treated with off-label treatments for actionable mutations based on Next Generation Sequencing results.

- To describe the safety of using off-label or other experimental treatments for patients with actionable mutations based on Next Generation Sequencing results.

Exploratory Objectives:

- To identify types of actionable mutations with available targeted treatment occurring in cancer patients.

- To characterize the historical treatment regimens for these patients relative to the targetable mutation.

- To describe patient clinical and demographic characteristics of those with actionable mutations based on Next Generation Sequencing results.

- To identify barriers to treatment based on Next Generation Sequencing results.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A housing and health care alternative combining independence with personal care. It provides a combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs, both scheduled and unscheduled, of those who need help with activities of daily living. (

Specialized health care, supportive in nature, provided to a dying person. A holistic approach is often taken, providing patients and their families with legal, financial, emotional, or spiritual counseling in addition to meeting patients' immediate physical needs. Care may be provided in the home, in the hospital, in specialized facilities (HOSPICES), or in specially designated areas of long-term care facilities. The concept also includes bereavement care for the family. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

Drug regimens, for patients with HIV INFECTIONS, that aggressively suppress HIV replication. The regimens usually involve administration of three or more different drugs including a protease inhibitor.

Facilities or services which are especially devoted to providing palliative and supportive care to the patient with a terminal illness and to the patient's family.

A thiosemicarbazone that is used in association with other antimycobacterial agents in the initial and continuation phases of antituberculosis regimens. Thiacetazone containing regimens are less effective than the short-course regimen recommended by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and are used in some developing countries to reduce drug costs.
