  • Publication number: 20180371099
    Abstract: The present invention provides therapeutic and diagnostic methods and compositions for cancer, for example, bladder cancer. The invention provides methods of treating bladder cancer, methods of determining whether a patient suffering from bladder cancer is likely to respond to treatment comprising a PD-L1 axis binding antagonist, methods of predicting responsiveness of a patient suffering from bladder cancer to treatment comprising a PD-L1 axis binding antagonist, and methods of selecting a therapy for a patient suffering from bladder cancer, based on somatic mutation levels of genes of the invention (e.g., somatic mutation levels in a tumor sample obtained from the patient).

  • Publication number: 20140336943
    Abstract: Various embodiments provide interfaces to access genomic testing information and incorporate it into daily physician practice. In some embodiments, presentation of genomic alteration data is simplified and/or coupled with contextual applications. Volumes of genomic alterations and associated information (e.g., journal articles, clinical trial information, therapies, etc.) are analyzed and synthesized into actionable information items viewable on an alteration system. According to one embodiment, the system can be configured to focus practitioners on discrete portions of the alteration information on which they can act. According to other aspects, curated information is provided on the system to enable practitioners to make informed decisions regarding the implications of the presence of specific genomic alterations.

  • Patent number: 6261103
    Abstract: An interactive computer system for teaching laboratory-based sciences. According to one embodiment, the system includes a data acquisition module, an internet-based coursework database, and internet-based interactive software tools. Using the interactive software tools, an instructor can select academic course materials and related laboratory experiments from the coursework database. The instructor can create an Internet web page, which provides students with an interactive visual interface with the selected course materials and laboratories, along with various analysis tools. The data acquisition module is located at the site of an experimentation laboratory, and interfaces with laboratory equipment to capture data from selected experiments. Experimental data is transmitted in real-time to an internet-based storage location.
