CELLSEARCH CTC count proves its clinical utility in guiding therapeutic strategy supporting patient care in HR+/HER2- metastatic breast cancer (Canada Newswire)
P3 | N=800 | NCT01710605 | "...the STIC CTC trial demonstrates that the use of CTC count as a tool for choosing between endocrine therapy (ET) and chemotherapy (CT) is non-inferior to the investigator's choice in terms of short and long-term clinical outcomes. While approximately 60% of the study participants had a concordant indication between the clinical risk-guided arm and the CTC-guided treatment arm, in the subgroup of patients with a discordant estimate, the use of frontline CT in the CTC-guided treatment arm instead of ET yielded a clinically and statistically significant gain of 16.4 months in median overall survival (OS)."

Menarini Silicon Biosystems announces publication of the DETECT III trial results highlighting the potential clinical utility of HER2 testing in circulating tumor cells with CELLSEARCH (PRNewswire)
P3 | N= 105 | DETECT III (NCT01619111) | "A total of 2,137 patients with HER2 negative MBC were screened for HER2 positive CTCs using Menarini Silicon Biosystems' CELLSEARCH® CTC System and the CELLSEARCH HER2 tumor phenotyping reagent. 105 patients, with at least one detected HER2 positive CTC in the initial CTC screening phase, were randomized to either lapatinib in combination with standard therapy or to standard therapy alone. Patients in the lapatinib arm had a significantly improved OS with a median survival time of 20.5 months compared to a median survival time of 9.1 months for patients in the standard arm (HR 0.54; 95% CI 0.34–0.86; p = 0.008)...the results indicate that CTC-guided treatment allocation may help optimize treatment strategies and should therefore be further investigated. The study also confirmed the prognostic role of CELLSEARCH CTC enumeration."

European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer & the Menarini Group Launch New Clinical Trial in Early-Stage Breast Cancer (PRNewswire)
"The study was submitted under the new Clinical Trial Regulation, and it is expected to start the activation process in the fourth quarter of 2023....Twelve countries have been selected to participate in the trial (Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland) with more than 120 sites expected to screen approximately 1960 patients. The randomised, open label, superiority phase III trial will evaluate whether elacestrant can delay the occurrence of metastasis or death compared to standard adjuvant endocrine therapy in patients with early-stage ER+/HER2- breast cancer and molecular relapse."

Menarini Silicon Biosystems announces new study results on use of CELLSEARCH liquid biopsy for earlier detection of relapse and to help inform decisions on patient management in stage III Melanoma (PRNewswire)
P=NA| N=325 | "Menarini Silicon Biosystems, a pioneer of liquid biopsy technology, announced today the publication, in the peer-reviewed journal Cancers, of the results of a clinical study on the utility of CTCs to detect disease relapse substantially earlier than what is currently possible with routine surveillance imaging, in patients with stage III melanoma....Moreover, patients, who had zero CTCs in their blood, were significantly less likely to develop disease relapse compared to those who had a presence of at least 1 CTC (HR: 0.37, 95% CI: 0.26–0.53, p-value < 0.001)."

Menarini Silicon Biosystems announces the launch of its new CELLSEARCH CTC test with the DLL3 biomarker for small cell lung cancer (PRNewswire-Asia)
"Menarini Silicon Biosystems...announced today the availability of its new CELLSEARCH CTC lab service to detect expression of the Delta-Like Ligand 3 (DLL3) protein in tumor cells circulating in the bloodstream. This biomarker is mainly expressed in difficult-to-treat cancers....In addition, the new CELLSEARCH CTC test that detects this biomarker has the great advantage of being minimally invasive, standardized and allows for the dynamic real-time quantification of CTCs. It is based on the CELLSEARCH CTC platform, first and only clinically validated, FDA-cleared system for identification, isolation, and enumeration of CTCs in patients with metastatic breast, castration-resistant prostate or colorectal cancer."

Menarini Silicon Biosystems new CELLSEARCH® data presented at AACR 2023 annual meeting highlights trailblazing contributions of liquid biopsies for cancer research (BioSpace)
"Menarini Silicon Biosystems...announced...the data from two posters to be presented at the April 14-19, 2023 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). Among them, one demonstrated the benefit of an AI algorithm for automated, reliable, and reproducible CELLSEARCH® CTC identification, while the other focused on the additional information available through the parallel immunomagnetic enrichment of tumor derived extracellular vesicles and CTCs from a single blood sample."

New STIC trial data shows longer overall survival for therapy selection based on CELLSEARCH CTC count in patients with metastatic breast cancer (Canada Newswire)
P3 | N=800 | NCT01710605 | "Menarini Silicon Biosystems...announced the promising long-term results of the STIC trial, on OS (overall survival) in patients with ER+/HER2- MBC....'we were particularly impressed by the subgroup of patients with a low clinical risk profile and CTC count ≥ 5, for whom physicians, in line with guidelines, selected endocrine therapy (ET). When treated with chemotherapy (ChT) instead, these patients had a superior median OS of 16 months.' The trial further showed that, when escalated to ChT, these patients also experienced a 47% reduction in their risk of death."

Circulating Tumor Cell detection by Menarini Group’s CELLSEARCH System leading to genomic profiling of myeloma cells shows potential for non-invasive management of Multiple Myeloma patients at early stages of disease (Menarini Press Release)
P=NA | N=261 | "Menarini Silicon Biosystems...announced today the results of a study in which enumeration and genomic characterization of CTCs at varying stages of MM represents an invaluable tool to predict disease aggressiveness and pathology....Findings from this novel and robust proof-of-concept study were based on CTCs from 261 patients (84 MGUS, 155 SMM and 22 MM). The majority of precursor patients analyzed in the study showed evidence of CTCs, with one or more CTCs detected in 82% of the overall enrolled population-. In addition, the data showed an increase in the number of CTCs from MGUS to SMM, confirming the correlation between a higher disease burden and greater trafficking of CTCs. The Kaplan Meier analysis over a median follow-up time of 27 months, showed that SMM patients with CTCs (≥ 1 per 4mL of blood) had a higher probability of progression to MM (P=0.03)."

"Results showed that CMMCs were detected in 27% of MGUS patients and in 57% SMM patients. Enumeration of CMMCs illustrated a correlation with the clinical measure of disease including the International Myeloma Working Group 2/20/20 risk stratification model. CMMCs can capture 100% of clinically annotated Bone Marrow FISH copy number variant [CNV] events. Furthermore, CMMC samples identified additional CNVs that were not observed by FISH."
