Webinar Description:

Champions Oncology has pioneered an advanced PDX platform for modeling hematology oncology malignancies, including AML and ALL. The platform consists of leukapheresis AML and ALL clinical patient samples that are characterized for the ability to engraft P1 study mice. Champions has also established a resource for modeling defined patient populations as they progress co-clinically by collecting blasts from patients as they progress in the clinic. Both approaches represent advantageous approaches, with the leukapheresis resource allowing for modeling large numbers of study mice across an established panel of patient samples and the co-clinical resource providing for modeling defined patient cohorts co-clinically.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the growing datasets supporting the Champions Oncology’s hematology AML and ALL modeling platform in P1 mice
  • Describe AML and ALL leukapheresis PDX modeling
  • Describe AML co-clinical PDX modeling platform
