INBRX-109 A New Medication to Treat Chondrosarcoma
Anthony P. Conley, M.D. will review the clinical trials he conducted using INBRX-109, the medication recently granted orphan-drug designation by the FDA to treat conventional chondrosarcoma as well as the future role medications like INBRX-109 will have in treating Chondrosarcoma.
Using Genetic Sequencing to Predict Prognosis
William Cross, Ph.D. will discuss genetic mutations found in chondrosarcoma cells that may have direct implications for patient outcome; namely that people with a specific mutation combination (in the genes IDH1 and TERT) do worse, hence they should perhaps be given more attention upfront. He discusses the need for testing the presence of these biomarkers following diagnosis, which is done for other cancer types and is easy and cost effective in the modern oncology clinic.
Using Patient Registries to Advance Research and Treatment
Janet Mauro will discuss the NORD: IAMRARE® Patient Registry Platform, currently being used by over 40 Foundation members organizations, nonprofits and advocacy groups representing individuals with rare diseases. She will identify the benefits of implementing a Patient Registry / Natural History Study, the type of information collected and how patient-entered data can be used to advance research and treatment. Ms. Mauro will also address concerns about security, privacy, confidentiality and other relevant issues.
