Lexent's technology integrates low-pass whole-genome sequencing, fragmentomics, and DNA methylation to detect early stage disease.

Lexent Bio's monitoring platform is in development and based on low-pass whole-genome sequencing and DNA methylation analysis.

The approval is based on results of the PROfound trial, which included men with mutations in BRCA1/2 or ATM, and 12 other genes associated with the HRR pathway.

The prospective study will combine real-world, clinical, and genomic data to streamline lung cancer clinical trials and find treatment-response biomarkers.

The oral MET inhibitor, marketed as Tabrecta, is for patients whose tumors have a mutation that leads to MET exon 14 skipping as detected by a Foundation Medicine test.

The FDA approved the drug based on data on response rate but continued approval is contingent on the results of a randomized study showing a PFS and OS advantage.

A new analysis suggests hypermutation can occur in some chemotherapy-treated gliomas, producing heterogeneous, mutation-rich tumors with poor response to anti-PD-1 treatment.

With TMB as a CDx, the drug will be available to more patients as a salvage option, but doctors will still need to consider the complex biomarker amid evolving research.

Foundation Medicine's liquid biopsy test will be used in the third stage of SCRUM-Japan, which focuses on advanced cancer patientsin Japan and other Asian countries.
