Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual
Clinical Application of Cell-Free DNA
August 19-20, 2015 | Capital Hilton | Washington, DC

Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is a relatively new technique with an exponential increase in applications for a variety of uses. The clinical utility of these new methods will be evaluated by thought-leaders in the field using the latest case studies. Non-invasive detection of cell-free DNA promises to impact clinical protocols and treatment regimens. cfDNA will determine the standard of care in oncology, transplant medicine and cardiovascular disease. This field is emerging as one of the most promising and exciting areas of medicine and has already made a huge impact on prenatal care.

The meeting will cover a range of topics including:

  • Examples of clinical utility and impact on therapy selection and regimen using cell free DNA
  • Methods for capturing and quantifying cfDNA detection
  • Use of non-blood based analysis of rare mutations, including urine, saliva, pap, stool samples
  • Results of profiling cfDNA, including DNA sequencing, digital PCR and mutation detection
  • Compare and contrast use of cfDNA with circulating tumor cells
  • Analysis of cfDNA to manage disease
  • Review of techniques to correlate cfDNA with tumor burden
  • cfDNA as an alternative to tissue biopsy
  • Applications in oncology, transplant medicine and cardiovascular disease
