Amgen Vertigo Risk Variant Set Points to Related Inner Ear Processes With a genome-wide association meta-analysis that included almost 943,000 vertigo cases or controls, researchers focused on vertigo-associated loci in inner ear-related genes. Decode Study Identifies Proteomic Predictors of All-Cause Mortality Using Somalogic's SomaScan to analyze nearly 23,000 subjects, the researchers identified signatures indicating high and low risks of death within 10 years. FDA Approves Amgen's Lumakras for NSCLC Alongside Companion Tests From Guardant Health, Qiagen The approval makes Lumakras the first inhibitor of KRAS, once considered "undruggable," to reach the market for KRAS-mutated NSCLC. Long-Read Sequencing Characterizes Structural Variants in Icelandic Population By extrapolating from long-read genome sequences from 3,622 Icelanders, researchers profiled SV alleles and associated traits or conditions in the broader population. Amgen, NeoGenomics Partner to Expand Biomarker Testing Access in NSCLC As part of its Biomarker Assist program, Amgen will cover the cost of NeoGenomics' KRAS tests for advanced or metastatic NSCLC patients regardless of their insurance status.
