Diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is often identified at a late stage. Analyzing the tumor-specific mutation profile of a patient with CCA can improve the diagnosis and treatment for the individual patient. The molecular profile of CCA can be done through the use of circulating tumor (ct) DNA sequencing, which may help to target specific mutations and improve treatment selection for this rare type of cancer.

Chicago, IL—A greater understanding of the biology of cholangiocarcinoma, including differences between intrahepatic versus extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, is driving the development of new therapeutic options that have shown promising results in advanced stages of this difficult-to-treat cancer. Patients whose disease progressed [ Read More ]
