Webinar Description:

Champions Oncology has established an advanced PDX platform for modeling hematology oncology malignancies including AML and ALL. The resource consists of leukapheresis AML and ALL clinical patient samples that are characterized for the ability to engraft into P1 study mice. Additionally, a resource for modeling defined patient populations as they progress co-clinically has been created by collecting blasts from patients as they progress in clinic. Both approaches are advantageous 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:

  • Introduction to hematology AML and ALL modeling in P1 mice
  • Describe the AML and ALL leukapheresis PDX modeling resource
  • Describe the AML co-clinical PDX modeling resource
