Inivata

New offerings from the oncology testing company include Inivita's InvisionFirst-Lung test and the NeoLab solid tumor test.

In one study, the UK-based firm found that its RaDaR assay detected circulating tumor DNA in lung cancer patients up to a year before standard clinical progression occurred in most of the cases. 

Under the agreement, NeoGenomics will also make a $25 million equity investment in Inivata with an option to buy the company outright.

Inivata expects to publish initial data on the assay's detection abilities in lung cancer at the American Association for Cancer Research virtual meeting in July.

The company will use its InVisionFirst-Lung test to study resistance mutations in patients treated with Pfizer's ALK inhibitor lorlatinib.

The company has collected initial evidence for an algorithmic method to predict immunotherapy response, and is studying its technology in treatment monitoring.

The study plans to recruit close to 300 patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer, with half being treated based on liquid biopsy results.

The company will market Inivata's InVision liquid biopsy assays to insured and self-pay patients across the region.
