Lung Cancer

News and reporting on lung cancer.

In the near term, the firm will launch a laboratory-developed, late-stage lung cancer assay out of its lab in Palo Alto. 

A new microbiome analysis uncovered cancer type-specific bacterial community features, along with intracellular bacteria in tumor and associated immune cells.

The startup is developing a qPCR-based profiling method that could provide results within hours to clinicians treating their cancer patients with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

The firm expects to launch a 510(k)-cleared version of its Bladder EpiCheck recurrence assay early next year followed by an RUO early-stage lung cancer assay.

The study found that metastatic seeding may occur early in primary tumor development, and treatment of metastases may fuel many of their mutations.

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

The firm has collected important health economic evidence for its clinical lung cancer assay and is building evidence for other products in additional cancer types.

The company recently received Medicare coverage for the DetermaRx assay that it brought to market through its acquisition of Razor Genomics late last year.

The cancer test developer will use the funding to commercialize its enrichment-based NGS panels. An IVD test also got CE marked.

Researchers argued that the field is ready for an expansion of adjuvant therapy trials informed by non-invasive, molecular measures of minimal residual disease.
