Example studies using PDX Live™ tumors

Pilot Combination Study Using a PDX Live™ Colon Adenocarcinoma


Figure 1. Mice bearing passage 3 colon adenocarcinoma PDX tumor (TM00170) were treated with vehicle control: D5W (dark grey), 20mg/ kg 5-Fu (light blue), 10mg/kg Oxaliplatin (orange) and 5-Fu + Oxaliplatin (dark blue) once per week for 3 weeks. Vehicle and 5-Fu were administrated intravenously and Oxaliplatin was dosed intraperitoneally. The readout for compound efficacy–alone or in combination-was assessed by taking tumor caliper measurements and body weight twice weekly. Ten NSG™ mice were used per arm. 

Pilot Combination Study Using a PDX Live™ Invasive Ductal Carcinoma 

Figure 2. Mice bearing passage 4 TM00089 PDX tumor were treated with vehicle control (D5W), Cisplatin (2mg/kg), Cyclophosphamide (40mg/kg) and Doxorubicin (2mg/kg) intravenously, once per week for 3 weeks; Docetaxel (15mg/kg) was dosed once per week only for 2 weeks intravenously.

Pilot Combination Study Using a PDX Live™ Lung Adenocarcinoma

Figure 4. Mice bearing TM00199 PDX samples at passage 3 were used to create five treatment groups of twelve mice each: vehicle control (0.5 % carboxymethylcellulose); erlotinib (50 mg/kg); afatinib (20 mg/kg); cetuximab (10 mg/kg); and afatinib plus cetuximab (20 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg, respectively). Vehicle, erlotinib, and afatinib were IP dosed daily for 21 days. Cetuximab was dosed intravenously three times weekly, for three weeks. Mice were monitored for tumor volume.
