Longitudinal biopsy samples are collected from cancer patient volunteers and from clinical trial subjects worldwide. These tissues are collected, preserved and shipped from the point-of-care to ICRI labs. The received specimens are de-identified by the sender and logged in and coded at ICRI. ICRI processes the specimens into slides and the slides are then labeled and shipped to ITL in Jerusalem for immunohistochemical staining and analysis.
A team lead by an immunologist, pathologist and radiologist are responsible for analyzing the interaction of the immune system with the local tumor environment and the immune response in the peripheral blood. This information is correlated with radiographical images taken at the same time as the longitudinal biopsy samples.
ITL is a world-leader in immunomonitoring research.
