How Residual Disease and Recurrence (RDR) Testing using Liquid Biopsy is Changing Clinical Trial Design

A new generation of liquid biopsy assays use personalized approaches and multiple patient specific markers to significantly increase test sensitivity. In this webinar Dr. Nitzan Rosenfeld will review some of the ways that these approaches using liquid biopsy are expanding options for patient selection and early read out. The webinar will discuss the importance of sensitivity and why the number of markers is critical. Examples of the evolution of this approach and application of personalized assays to recent clinical studies will be discussed.
