Lunit to Showcase 7 Studies at AACR 2024: Unveiling AI Innovations in HER2 Expression-Mutation Analysis and CNTN4 Biomarker Identification (PRNewswire)
"Lunit...today announced the presentation of seven studies at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 2024 Annual Meeting...In a poster presentation, Lunit's AI-powered HER2 analyzer, Lunit SCOPE HER2's precision shines through its analysis of 194,259 pan-cancer samples, correlating different ERBB2 mutations with changes in HER2 protein expression. This AI-powered assessment successfully identified key mutation-expression correlations, particularly focusing on exon 20 insertions (ex20ins) and S310x mutations across a variety of cancers, including NSCLC, urothelial, and breast cancers...Through detailed HER2 intensity examination, the AI analysis highlighted that, among ERBB2-mutated cases with HER2 IHC images, a higher proportion of HER2 3+ tumor cells was observed in S310x and ex20ins cases compared to others....The analysis of 795 pan-cancer tissue samples revealed an important inverse correlation between CNTN4 expression and PD-L1 levels."
