Multiplex IHC Immuno-Oncology Panel, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Standardized profiling of the immune status based on spatial and functional characterization of the tumor microenvironment

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 02, 2017) - The webinar on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 features guest speaker Dr. Svenja Lippok, Product Marketing Manager from Definiens AG and will be broadcast live at 9am EST (2pm GMT) and 1pm EST.

Characterization of the immune status of patients becomes increasingly important to personalize cancer treatments. The required extraction of information and biological insights from tissue slides remains challenging because of the broad heterogeneity of tumor and immune cells embedded in the complex tumor microenvironment. Thus, the analysis requires expert insights as well as standardized methods.

Definiens has developed a standardized multiplex immunohistochemistry (mIHC) assay (IO panel) to profile the immune status of patient tumors into biologically meaningful and clinically actionable categories.

In this webinar, Dr. Lippok will discuss:

  • How to study the functional interaction between the immune system and the individual cancer using next-generation image mining and data analysis software for real-time analysis of huge multiplexed data sets
  • How this approach enables the spatial analysis and aggregation of multiplexed information in heterogeneous tissue

The statistical analysis and evaluation combined with interactive data visualization and reporting are expected to support better patient stratification towards different immunotherapies or their combinations. The integration of genomic (e.g. mutational load) data is supported as well as the integration of any other -omics data.
