BioDiscovery release new analysis software program for cancer research Affymetrix and BioDiscovery.

CytoScan Cytogenetics Suite and OncoScan FFPE Assay Package are key parts of our cancer portfolio, says Dr. Andy Last, Executive Vice Chief and President Operating Officer in Affymetrix. Researchers have been acquiring CNVs and copy neutral changes in liquid and solid tumor samples. By using Nexus Copy Number, a sophisticated discovery tool for interrogating large data sets, researchers have been able to determine biomarkers that drive disease progression. The brand new Nexus Copy Amount for Affymetrix software gives researchers a version of the Nexus Copy Number software that is better to gain access to and has been particularly tailored for Affymetrix' assays.Nevertheless, the neurotropic form of the JC virus regulatory region was detected for the very first time in the urine of eight sufferers in whom viruria developed during natalizumab therapy. Thus, JC virus might reactivate and undergo neurotropic transformation in the kidneys of natalizumab-treated patients. Our findings suggest that monitoring for JC virus in the urine of sufferers getting natalizumab therapy and in addition, after 18 months, in PBMCs in patients with viruria could offer some insight into viral replication.
