This is a prospective, non-randomized, observational registry study evaluating a patient-specific ex vivo 3D (EV3D) assay for drug response using a patient's own biopsy or resected tumor tissue for assessing tissue response to therapy in patients with advanced cancers, including Ovarian cancer and Glioblastoma multiforme.

Official Title

3D-PREDICT REGISTRY: 3D Prediction of Patient-specific Response Using Ex Vivo Interrogation of Live Cells From Tumors


This protocol defines a prospective, open-label, multi-institutional, non-interventional study for the purpose of examining the Assay's clinical use and potential to impact patient outcomes. This Study will establish a registry of clinical parameters, including clinical response, clinical outcomes, Assay performance and potential utilization across multiple types of advanced cancers in consenting patients who have their tumor tissue tested by the Assay. Physicians will have access to Assay results which is predicting tissue response to standard of care agents. The Assay currently assesses the most common standard of care agents across multiple tumor types and requires freshly obtained tumor specimen that has not been previously preserved for traditional histologic analysis. The Registry will focus initially on tumor types and agents which have been analytically validated with the Assay and determined to meet strict laboratory qualifications and standards. The Registry will collect data on a limited number of cancer types to include epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), high grade gliomas (HGG) including Anaplastic Astrocytoma (AA) and Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), and high grade rare tumors (RT).
