NSCLC

In a recent publication, the researchers assessed clinical data from 3,000 late-stage NSCLC patients after performing DNA and RNA sequencing on their tissue samples.

ArcherDX plans to keep its research and development efforts in its current facility and move its clinical and commercial testing operations to Baby Gene's CLIA lab.

AmoyDx's kit is designed to detect hotspot mutations/fusions in nine genes to help guide treatment decisions for non-small cell lung cancer patients.

The institutes will send patients samples to Resolution Bioscience, which will sequence circulating tumor DNA to identify the genetic causes of drug resistance.

Qiagen's test detects the most frequently occurring somatic mutations in EGFR in less than four hours using real-time PCR on the Rotor-Gene Q platform.

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.

During the meeting, researchers presented studies on combination immunotherapies and the efficacy of giving molecularly-informed treatments earlier in the disease continuum.

As one of six grantee projects, investigators from Yale, Harvard, and Rice University are partnering with Microsoft to bring forward a combined technique for the early detection of NSCLC.

The companies will use Natera's Signatera circulating tumor DNA assay to assess response to NEO-PV-01, a clinical trial-stage neoantigen cancer vaccine.

The study supports the use of liquid biopsy tests to guide treatment decisions, especially in patients who can't be biopsied, or don't have enough tissue available for standard testing.
