CrownBio 2018. Poster 5033. Recapitulating the TME in Ex Vivo 3D Tumor Growth AssayThe assessment of novel tumor microenvironment (TME) targeting therapies is currently hindered by a lack of preclinical in vitro and in vivo models which contain or incorporate human stromal cells.

To overcome this unmet preclinical need, CrownBio has developed a 3D-tumor growth assay (3D-TGA) in which patient-derived tumor cells are admixed with a basement membrane extract and human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells for novel agent screening.

This poster compares 3D-TGA activity results with in vivo subcutaneous response for the paired patient-derived xenograft models for a range of NSCLC standard of care (e.g. paclitaxel) and targeted (e.g. erlotinib) agents.

Read this Poster to Discover:

  • That comparable sensitivities to test agents (e.g. paclitaxel, mTOR inhibitors, erlotinib, and carboplatin) are observed between the 3D-TGA and in vivo NSCLC xenograft studies
  • That the relative potency between standard of care agents in the 3D-TGA correlates with in vivo efficacy data e.g. relative higher potency in the 3D-TGA relates to greater tumor inhibitory effect in vivo
  • That human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells are required within the 3D–TGA to show comparable response to in vivo studies
