Predicting survival of cancer patients by chromosomal copy number heterogeneity

Mol Cell Oncol. 2021 Aug 3;8(4):1949956. doi: 10.1080/23723556.2021.1949956. eCollection 2021.


We recently introduced a method to derive intra-tumor heterogeneity (ITH) from a single copy number measurement. This method stratifies patients for survival and could potentially help to identify low and high-risk patients with clinical relevance.

Keywords: Biomarker; chromosomal instability; intra-tumor heterogeneity; pan-cancer.
