SOPHiA GENETICS Announces Strong Traction in the Launch Phase of its DEEP-Lung-IV Multimodal Clinical Study | State
BOSTON and LAUSANNE, Switzerland, January 11, 2022 / CNW / – SOPHiA GENETICS SA (NASDAQ: SOPH), the creator of a global data and knowledge sharing platform that advances data-driven medicine, today announced strong traction in the launch phase of its DEEP-Lung-IV clinical study (NCT04994795). Since its official launch last month, 12 sites in 5 countries have already registered to participate in the study.
Despite the clinical promises of immunotherapy, significant challenges remain as the majority of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) do not respond to immune checkpoint inhibitors. Today, PD-L1 is the only standard predictive biomarker for the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitors, but it remains a very suboptimal biomarker with several well characterized problems limiting its clinical utility. Thus, there is an urgent need to discover new biomarkers predictive of response to immunotherapy. SOPHiA GENETICS ‘DEEP-Lung-IV clinical study relies on deep learning analysis of real-world multimodal data aggregation (including genomic, radiomic and clinical data) to identify and validate predictive signatures associated with the response to immunotherapy and the prognosis of patients with metastatic NSCLC (stage IV). Such signatures could help identify which patients may benefit from immunotherapy versus those who do not, as well as stratify patients based on risk, helping clinicians make more informed treatment decisions for their patients and supporting biopharma to ensure the right patients are selected for the clinic. testing.
The initial 12 sites that signed up to participate in the study include the Carbon Comprehensive Cancer Center in University of Wisconsin and Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at University of Iowa Health Care in the United States, Public Assistance-Hospitals of Paris and Hospices Civils de Lyonnais in France, Leipzig University of Germany, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center at Toronto, Canada, and Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel, among others. Together, these sites are expected to contribute more than 2,000 of the 4,000 total patients targeted for enrollment during the study. 10 additional sites are awaiting integration in the first quarter of 2022, with more candidates expected to follow.
“We are very pleased with the strong traction since the launch of our multimodal DEEP-Lung-IV clinical study. The positive reception from participating sites highlights the great interest in unleashing the predictive potential of multimodal health data sets through large-scale real-world studies “said Dr Jurgi Camblong, co-founder and CEO of SOPHiA GENETICS. “We look forward to further accelerating this momentum in the first months of 2022.”
