Prevalence Studies

Guide patient selection for translational oncology & immuno-oncology drug discovery programs with a thorough understanding of biomarker expression & prevalence.

Step 1: Use TriStar’s multi-tumor/normal (non-malignant) TMAs to screen novel target expression across multiple tissue types simultaneously.

Step 2: Focus target expression analyses on cancers of interest with TriStar’s tumor-specific TMAs.

Step 3: Combine target prevalence data with molecular & clinical follow up (treatment/response information) for development of predictive/prognostic biomarkers.

  • Deliver biomarker strategy for clinical programs with rapid molecular profiling of multiple tissue types (tumor & normal) simultaneously.
  • Use TriStar’s TMAs & tissues for rapid evaluation of biomarker expression across multiple tumor types/donors and integrate with clinical follow up information.
