360 Series Panel Collection

Masthead

Inspired by systems biology approaches to cancer research, NanoString’s 360 Series Panel Collection gives you a 360° view of gene expression by combining carefully-curated content involved in the biology of the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response into a single holistic assay. Each panel contains the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature (TIS) that measures a peripherally-suppressed, adaptive immune response and has been shown to correlate with response to checkpoint inhibitors.

Ideal for studying solid tumors, the 360 Series Panel Collection can be used to better understand the biology behind therapeutic response, therapeutic mechanism of action, immune evasion, and the interplay between the tumor and microenvironment. These panels serve as powerful tools for developing novel signatures that correlate with response and/or survival.

  • 1,588 unique genes included across all panels
  • PAM50, Claudin-Low, & Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) gene signatures included in the Breast Cancer 360 Panel
  • Data Analysis Service for the IO 360 and Breast Cancer 360 Panels provides interactive and customizable reports with signatures scores
  • Pairs with GeoMx® Cancer Transcriptome Atlas for comparative spatial RNA profiling

Fully-annotated gene lists in Excel format are available for each of the 360 Panels. The table below compares the biology coverage of the 360 Panels across the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response to that of the PanCancer Panels Collection.

Tumor Inflammation Signature

The Tumor Inflammation Signature1 includes 18 functional genes often associated with the response to PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors. It is embedded into all of the 360 series panels: The PanCancer IO 360 Panel, the Breast Cancer 360 Panel, and the Tumor Signaling 360 Panel.

  • Includes four areas of immune biology: IFN-ү-responsive genes related to antigen presentation, chemokine expression, cytotoxic activity, and adaptive immune resistance genes.
  • Highlights the complex biology of the host immune microenvironment.

Sympathetic axonal sprouting induces changes in macrophage populations and protects against pancreatic cancer.

Neuronal nerve processes in the tumor microenvironment were highlighted recently. However, the origin of intra-tumoral nerves remains poorly known, in part because of technical difficulties in tracing nerve fibers via conventional histological preparations.

Immunostimulatory cancer-associated fibroblast subpopulations can predict immunotherapy response in head and neck cancer.

Purpose: Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) have been implicated as potential mediators of checkpoint immunotherapy response. However, the extensive heterogeneity of these cells has precluded rigorous understanding of their immunoregulatory role in the tumor microenvironment.

Spatial profiling reveals association between WNT pathway activation and T-cell exclusion in acquired resistance of synovial sarcoma to NY-ESO-1 transgenic T-cell therapy.

Background: Genetically engineered T-cell immunotherapies for adoptive cell transfer (ACT) have emerged as a promising form of cancer treatment, but many of these patients develop recurrent disease. Furthermore, delineating mechanisms of resistance may be challenging since the analysis of bulk tumor profiling can be complicated by spatial heterogeneity.
