News and reporting on lung cancer.

Plans are in place for a Guardant360-based assay to predict response to AsztraZeneca's Tagrisso and for a blood-based TMB test using the larger GuardantOmni panel.

Researchers have shown nanoparticles can enrich low molecular weight, low abundance plasma proteins that are hard to detect using standard proteomic workflows.

New research suggests that the physicochemical changes to DNA in a cancer-related methylation landscape can alter a DNA molecule's affinity for gold substrates.

With a DNA methylation atlas and deconvolution algorithm, researchers are attempting to trace cfDNA back to tissue sources in healthy or ill individuals.

The firms will begin a prospective lung cancer study using Biocartis' Idylla EGFR mutation test in European countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy.

A circulating tumor DNA analysis identified somatic mutations in more than 64 percent of advanced non-small cell lung cancer cases, including some drug targets.

The company reported revenues of $21.7 million compared to $11.1 million in the year-ago quarter, overshooting analysts' expectations of $17.5 million.

The company reported no revenues in Q3 but said it has completed the transition to a new diagnostic platform for its DetermaVu liquid biopsy lung cancer test.

The assay can identify KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and EGFR gene mutations, as well as 19 gene rearrangements of the ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1, and MET genes from FFPE.

The firm said genomic testing volume rose 23 percent year over year, and raised its revenue guidance for full-year 2018.
