Patients and physicians can now access active clinical trials for various cancer types including lung, breast, leukemia and more through the largest clinical trials database
CULVER CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 8, 2016– NantHealth, Inc., (Nasdaq: NH), a leading next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, together with NantKwest and NantOmics, today announced the public availability of QUILT Programs (Quantum Immuno-oncology Lifelong Trial), aimed to harness and orchestrate all elements of the immune system through the testing of novel treatment combinations, within the national clinical trials database, www.ClinicalTrials.gov.
QUILT utilizes GPS Cancer – a unique, comprehensive set of tests integrating quantitative proteomics, and whole genome (DNA) and transcriptome (RNA) sequencing—to provide oncologists with a full molecular profile of each patient’s cancer not only for an initial biopsy before the trial begins, but throughout the trial process to fully understand how each therapy impacts the patient’s tumor activity.
“The accessibility of QUILT trials through the NIH ClinicalTrials.gov registry allows us to better inform patients and healthcare providers about immunotherapy based trials now available and enrolling for a variety of cancers,” stated Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, CEO of NantHealth. “Registering the QUILT trials to ClinicalTrial.gov enables NantHealth to provide timely updates and summary results, ensuring that these active clinical trials are publicly available to accelerate immunotherapy treatments for both patients and oncologists.”
ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry of clinical trials run by the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and is the largest clinical trials database, currently holding registrations from about 200,000 trials from more than 170 countries in the world. Trials are accepted by the NIH based on apparent validity, logic and consistency, and overall configuration.
