The groups combined their circulating tumor cell collection and detection platforms to find higher cell numbers in metastatic breast, lung, and melanoma cancer patients. 

A retrospective cohort study uncovered microRNA signatures that could tell lung cancer patients apart from others, including patients with other, non-tumor lung conditions.

LabCorp will be the exclusive provider of the test, which uses next-generation sequencing to look for actionable mutations cell-free DNA in NSCLC patients.

Investigators have developed an approach called RAMP-Seq in which targeted radiation of a suspicious lesion vastly increase levels ctDNA, aiding detection and allowing genotyping. 

The high-throughput S2000 sequencer is the second instrument Genetron Health has received NMPA approval for, following the S5 benchtop instrument last year.

Extending a prior agreement with the drugmaker, Personalis will use its DNA/RNA platform to identify both predictive biomarkers and resistance mechanisms.

A new analysis has provided evidence that adjuvant lung cancer immunotherapy benefits those with lingering ctDNA, but not necessary those without.

The deal comes on the heels of a colorectal cancer-focused drug-discovery alliance that the German companies formed in early 2019.

The funds will support the companies' efforts to develop tests for predicting NSCLC patients' response to immunotherapy.

The companies will develop tissue-based companion diagnostics for Amgen's investigational treatment AMG 510 for non-small cell lung cancer.
