Mission Bio Announces Launch of Single-Cell Measurable Residual Disease (MRD) Assay Aimed to Advance Personalized Healthcare for Blood Cancer Patients

As the only solution to integrate genotypic and immunophenotypic assessment, the scMRD AML Multiomics Assay targets 40 genes for single-cell DNA sequencing based on current international AML MRD guidelines, such as European LeukemiaNet, and 17-plex antibody-oligonucleotide conjugate (AOC) panel curated for key biomarkers associated with AML MRD. 

Through a seamlessly integrated workflow, the assay allows clinician-researchers to:

  • Distinguish true MRD from pre-leukemic or precursor clones with a limit of detection of 0.01%,
  • Reveal clonal architecture (co-occurrence and zygosity of mutation) and uncover the order of acquisition of mutations (phylogeny),
  • Track clonal dynamics and immunophenotypic drifts through disease course to identify therapeutic targets and therapy-resistance subclones.

Proteogenomic scMRD Characterization in AML Resolves Complex Clonal Dynamics

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) measurable residual disease (MRD) is difficult to detect accurately, and current methods such as flow cytometry (FCM) and bulk next-generation sequencing (NGS) are commonly challenged by both false-positive and false-negative results. Even when these single-metric assays agree on
an MRD result, too often they are still discordant with clinical outcome.

The new scMRD assay from MissionBio allows genotypic and immunophenotypic analysis at clonal level with single cell resolution for precision medicine.

IDIBAPS Researchers Discover Genetic Drivers of Clonal Evolution in Leukemia Using Single-Cell DNA Sequencing from Mission Bio

Tapestri® Platform powers Nature Medicine publication that identified rare subclones associated with aggressive cancer progression

In new findings from the lab of Elías Campo, Director of the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS) in Barcelona, Spain, which used single-cell DNA sequencing to identify genetic drivers of Richter’s syndrome, the unpredictable and often deadly progression from chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) to an aggressive B cell lymphoma.

The new study, published in the journal Nature Medicine, was the latest to demonstrate clinically relevant insights using Mission Bio’s Tapestri® Platform, highlighting rare Richter’s Syndrome subclones that lie dormant for years and could be targeted therapeutically to prevent disease progression by uncovering mutations at the individual cell level.

Tapestri Solution for Tumor Profiling in Single Cell

Because understanding cancer’s mechanisms and therapy resistance requires single-cell insights

A major challenge to combating cancer is the tumor’s inherent heterogeneity. Single-cell DNA sequencing allows you to unmask the underlying genetic diversity across cell populations and gain insights into the clonal architecture, mutation co-occurrence, and rare mutations driving tumor progression and therapy resistance.

Tapestri Single-cell DNA Breast Cancer Research Panel V2

Advance your understanding of the genetic heterogeneity underpinning breast cancer by targeting 32 hotspot genes and 30 copy number variants and chromosome arm aneuploidies for single-cell sequencing. Carefully curated based on evidence from more than 15 databases such as COSMIC and reviewed by leading researchers of breast cancer, this panel is designed to cover some of the most commonly mutated genes associated with breast cancer, including BRCA1 and BRCA2

Tapestri’s scMRD technology improves identification of measurable residual disease, and can help power new therapeutic strategies

Measurable residual disease (MRD) detection using next-generation sequencing (NGS) has allowed for a sensitive evaluation of a patient’s relapse risk, but several challenges remain unresolved. Bulk NGS alone provides limited sensitivity and specificity to deconstruct the complex heterogeneity/somatic mosaicism driving disease transformation or to distinguish between leukemic clones and clonal hematopoiesis (CH). It also lacks information about immunophenotypic heterogeneity, typically inferred by flow cytometry, rendering an incomplete picture.

Mission Bio’s Tapestri Platform is the first single-cell multi-omics approach integrating molecular (mutational) profiling and immunophenotyping in a single assay to allow for scMRD detection with unparalleled resolution, sensitivity and specificity, ultimately improving identification of residual disease and potential therapeutic strategies

Tapestri Platform resolves several challenges in MRD testing:

Unmask clonal architecture at diagnosis and during treatment and detect rare and subclonal variants driving the disease transformation

Characterize changes in clonal diversity over time, providing valuable information about tumor evolution and its correlation with relapse

Enable unambiguous distinction between leukemia driving clones and CH, reducing false positives

Integrate single-cell genotypic and immunophenotypic information for a comprehensive MRD assessment
