These blood-based tests, which were developed on Biodesix’s proprietary Diagnostic Cortex™ platform, may identify patients who derive significant benefit from anti-PD-1 monotherapy and might not gain additional benefit from the addition of anti-CTLA-4 agents. Dr. Weber will make his presentation at the 4th Immunotherapy of Cancer Conference in Europe (ITOC4).
