Nohla will use Karius' NGS plasma test for pathogen detection in a randomized trial evaluating Nohla's lead product, a cellular therapy called NLA101.

Under the agreement, the researchers plan to sequence 150 AML genomes and transcriptomes to look for population-specific variants.

Sophia Genetics has received a CE-IVD mark for a sequencing-based test that, combined with data analytics, is meant to improve detection of leukemia.

A Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center-led team has followed more than 50 patients for more than two years after receiving immunotherapy, Time reports.

The researchers plan to develop a clinical test to monitor CML patients in remission for the BCR-ABL1 rearrangement. 

A proportion of pediatric ALL patients appear to have germline TP53 mutations associated with later diagnoses, poorer outcomes, and increased secondary cancer risk.

The test measures minimal residual disease and can be used to monitor patients eligible for discontinuation of treatment with Tasigna.
