News and reporting on lung cancer.

As labs implement TMB workflows in-house, studies are showing that its is possible to validate assays with cutoff points remaining stable across complex clinical cohorts and in different drug contexts.

OncoCyte provided additional details about the history of the Razor test, its timeline for making it commercially available, and plans for a follow-on study.

The partners will use Biolidics' circulating tumor cell retrieval system to evaluate the cells' utility as biomarkers of patient response to cancer treatment.

OncoCyte believes Razor's CLIA-validated lung cancer prognostic test will complement its in-development DetermaVu lung cancer detection assay.

The Belgian oncology molecular diagnostics firm reported a 17 percent increase in product sales but said that sales of cartridges in the US were lower than expected. 

Developed using the center's "industrialized" proteomics workflow, the panel identified patients up to a year before their diagnosis with 89 percent accuracy.

The FDA has granted accelerated approval to Rozlytrek as a treatment for adult and adolescent patients with NTRK fusion-positive cancers.

The firm, which is working to reaccelerate its test validation effort, incurred a loss of $5.4 million, or $.10 per share, slightly above the analysts' consensus estimate.

Researchers developed a microfluidic device that combines antibody-based cell capture and disulfide cleavage for downstream microRNA detection.

Researchers focused on candidate genes near expression quantitative trait loci identified by combining cancer susceptibility SNPs and available transcriptomic data.
