PTM Biosciences launched a clinical study to assess responsiveness to Immunotherapy in Melanoma patients. The multi-site, two-arm study will enroll approximately 80 Melanoma patients, treated with Immunotherapy.
As part of the planned study, PTM Biosciences will analyze liquid biopsies of Melanoma patients, treated with anti PD-1 Nivolumab or Pembrolizumab. Post Translational Modifications profiling in Melanoma patients is an important step toward achieving clinical data in regards to the responsiveness to Immunotherapy. Study outcomes will facilitate the identification of activity based precision medicine biomarkers.
The study is led by Dr. Jonathan Cohen and additional clinicians from the Hadassah Medical Organization, and is conducted in collaboration with additional sites in Israel and the U.S.
