Fred Russell Kramer and Diana Vargas published a research article in Nature’s Scientific Reports.  Their study shows that SuperSelective primer pairs enhance the sensitivity of multiplex PCR assays that identify and quantitate somatic mutations in liquid biopsies obtained from patients with cancer, thereby enabling the choice of a targeted therapy, the determination of its effectiveness over time, and the substitution of a more appropriate therapy as new mutations arise.
