A new molecular analysis tool has been used to detect the level of an important target for immunotherapy in early-stage breast cancers, researchers at Yale University report in the journal Clinical Cancer Research (Clin Cancer Res; 20(10); 2773 82).

Blockade of the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway is an important axis for new oncology therapies against melanoma, breast, ovarian, colorectal and other cancers. Levels of tumour PD-L1 expression are indicative of tumour survival and response to treatment. Development of accurate reproducible PD-L1 test is imperative in the pharmaceutical and R&D healthcare setting. However measurement of PD-L1 protein levels is limited by lack of standardisation of tests and variable performance of antibodies.

The new diagnostic test, developed in the Rimm laboratory at Yale University Department of Pathology using RNAScope, measures the amount of PD-L1 mRNA in cancer tissues. It is devoid of many of the technical issues that plague antibody-based detection methods that have yielded conflicting results in the past. In their published study analysing PD-L1 mRNA in 636 breast cancers, nearly 60% of tumours were positive for PD-L1 mRNA. Furthermore, PD-L1 mRNA levels are significantly associated with tumour infiltrating lymphocytes, breast cancer ER negative status and improved recurrence free survival.

These observations support the evaluation of PD-1/PD-L1 targeted therapies in breast cancer and offer new hope for the development of a robust clinical test for patient stratification.
