Very Low Tumor Mutation Burden Identifies Inflamed Recurrent Glioblastomas Responsive to Cancer Immunotherapy
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
A subset of available tumors (with matched blood) from patients enrolled in a phase I clinical trial testing a recombinant poliovirus, published by Desjardins et al. NEJM 2018 (PMID:29943666), were analyzed by whole exome sequencing and RNA-seq. It was discovered that low tumor mutation burden correlated with survival outcome, and also discovered that low tumor mutation burden correlated with higher inflammatory gene signatures by RNA-seq.
