With integrated data for thousands of TCGA tumors, teams explored cancer subtypes, searched for prognostic insights, began mapping immune cell interactions, and more.

The firm is in the midst of evaluating its strategic options and has hired Raymond James to assist in the process, which could include the sale of the firm, it said.

The company's net loss climbed about 30 percent to $4.0 million for Q4 2017, and reached $19.4 million for the full year.

The company has highlighted the study as evidence that its test would outperform Roche's FDA-approved liquid biopsy assay if implemented in the clinic.

The lab, which serves hospitals in India and surrounding countries, will use Precipio's ICE COLD-PCR technology to offer blood-based mutation tests.

St. Louis-based Cofactor will use the National Cancer Institute's clinical specimens in order to validate its Paragon assay platform.

The company plans to launch an RNA sequencing-based test to help subtype and determine treatment for thyroid cancer, and a test to detect noninvasive lung cancer.

They acknowledge that while the technical hurdles of proteomic test development have become manageable, commercialization is still a major challenge.

The company expects to be able to offer at least one test commercially by the end of this year or early next, with research now starting on two others.

The new guidelines said ROS1, KRAS, BRAF, MET, RET, and HER2 should be included in targeted and expanded panels.
