Personal Genome Diagnostics

The company is using the test to direct patient enrollment and treatment stratification in a trial of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) combination treatments.

The in vitro diagnostic uses next-generation sequencing to detect clinically actionable genetic variants to guide therapy selection for cancer patients.

The company said it has seen progress in efforts to get FDA approval for its tissue and liquid biopsy tests as data continues to accumulate for pan-cancer utility.

Guardant told a federal judge that it believes Foundation Medicine and Personal Genome Diagnostics are coordinating to invalidate its patents.

PGDx, the defendant in the liquid biopsy IP case, has alleged that Guardant's CEO should have been named as an inventor on patents but was purposefully left off.

The in vitro diagnostic uses next-generation sequencing to detect clinically actionable genetic variants to guide therapy selection for cancer patients.

The firms will partner on studies needed to support and secure US regulatory approval for the Elio tissue complete assay.

PGDx and KingMed plan to provide tumor mutational burden testing to pharmaceutical companies for clinical trials in China and Hong Kong.

The trial will test two Bristol-Myers Squibb cancer drugs in patients with metastatic or unresectable tumors harboring mutations in the genes POLE and POLD1.

The funding will support efforts to convert PGDx's technology, including both tissue and liquid biopsy tests, for dissemination as regulated IVD kits.
