Study to Evaluate Strata’s Ability to Detect Tumor Recurrence using Liquid Biopsy and Monitor Treatment Effectiveness for Patients with Early-Stage Solid Tumors

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Strata Oncology, Inc., a precision oncology company advancing molecular indications for cancer therapies, today announced plans to begin enrolling the Sentinel Trial in the first half of 2021. Sentinel is a prospective, observational study designed to enroll approximately 100,000 patients diagnosed with stage 1-3 solid tumors and indicated for surgery or definitive therapy. The study will evaluate the ability of Strata’s investigational liquid biopsy assay to detect disease recurrence and to monitor treatment effectiveness in patients across solid tumors.

“The Sentinel Trial will support the validation of our personalized recurrence monitoring assay for patients with solid tumors in a diverse population,” said Dan Rhodes, PhD, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Strata Oncology. “The study will also evaluate the utility of our approach for guiding treatment decisions in patients with early-stage solid tumors. To date, most advances in precision oncology have been in late-stage cancer. The clinical and molecular information generated in this study has the potential to advance precision cancer care to the early-stage.”
