Epic Sciences, in partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), have demonstrated that a liquid biopsy blood test may be used in clinical trials to find patients who are likely to benefit from PSMA-targeted therapies, before treatment is initiated. The blood test, developed by Epic Sciences, looks on the surface of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) for a specific protein, called prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), that is highly expressed in prostate cancer. In the study, the presence of PSMA-positive CTCs in patients with metastatic prostate cancer was related to the patient’s therapeutic response and clinical outcomes to an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) therapy targeting PSMA-positive prostate cancer cells.
