Eleven new recommendations were issued to address appropriate HER2 testing and clinical guidance in individuals with advanced gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma.

Genome sequencing on more than 100 esophageal adenocarcinoma tumors led to structural rearrangements and three esophageal adenocarcinoma mutational subtypes.

Researchers uncovered ties between a germline VSIG10L mutation, inherited forms of Barrett esophagus, and related esophageal cancer cases.

The company's technology will be used to analyze samples from a large cohort of Chinese volunteers to identify biomarkers for early cancer detection.

Researchers will develop PCR and next-generation sequencing assays for aberrantly methylated vimentin, with the goal of commercializing a screening test. 

Foundation's NGS test also found clinically actionable genomic alterations in more than 90 percent of patient samples.
