Brain Cancer PDX Models
Suitable preclinical models are needed to evaluate therapies targeting specific pathways which affect brain cancer. Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models are known to closely reflect human heterogeneity and provide the most accurate approach to predicting an agent’s efficacy prior to entering the clinic. The Crown Bioscience brain cancer PDX collection consists of a wide range of models, including several orthotopic models to more closely recapitulate the tumor microenvironment. More
PDX offer the most translational preclinical model for efficacy screening in cancer drug development. Derived directly from patient tumors and never adapted to grow in vitro, PDX models reflect the heterogeneity and diversity of the human patient population. PDX give you an accurate, predictive model of how your treatment will perform, well before entering into expensive clinical trials. Crown Bioscience’s HuPrime® PDX models are well characterized for pathology, growth characteristics, and are also genetically/genomically annotated for gene expression, gene copy number, mutations, and fusions.
