MOLECULAR SCREENING AND THERAPEUTICS IN LEUKAEMIA AND LYMPHOMA
QIMR is now a national remote consenting hub for the MoST-LLy study extending access for patients to all part of Australia.
ABOUT THIS STUDY
The Molecular Screening and Therapeutics (MoST) Program is a clinical research program that is testing a new approach to providing treatments for patients with cancer. MoST-LLy is a cohort within MoST that is just for patients with blood cancers. The MoST program personalises experimental treatment based on an individual’s unique cancer genetic profile, rather than where their cancer originates.
If a patient is suitable for the program, their blood cancer is tested to see if the DNA contains genetic biomarkers that can guide treatment. This process is called molecular screening or genetic testing. After a patient’s blood cancer is tested, a report is sent to their referring haematologist with information on (i) any genetic biomarkers that were identified and (ii) the types of treatment that may be suitable.

Patients are asked to discuss the program with their doctor or treating haematologist who may refer a patient they consider suitable by filling in the online referral and attaching a pathology report.

The MoST-LLy research program is a collaboration between QIMR Berghofer, led by Professor Steven Lane, Group leader of The Gordon and Jessie Gilmour Leukaemia Research Laboratory at QIMR Berghofer and clinical haematologist at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, SA Pathology, PathWest, Omico (the Australian Genomic Cancer Medicine Centre) and the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre at the University of Sydney. This program has ethics approval from St Vincent’s Hospital Human Research Ethics Committee (2019/ETH03114) and the University of Sydney is the regulatory sponsor of clinical trials undertaken through the program. MoST-LLy has generously been co-funded by The Leukemia Foundation, Tour de Cure and the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF).
