News and reporting on ovarian cancer.

Data from more than 11,800 women with breast cancer suggested unselected BRCA1, BRCA2, and PALB2 testing is cost-effective for UK and US payors and societies.

The company's goal is to serve what it sees as a massive but underaddressed target group: Asian women.

The team analyzed multigene panel test data from Ambry Genetics for 165,000 individuals, focusing on hereditary cancer risk related to 32 genes in six cancer types.

The new company, called Inex Innovate, aims by next year to introduce new tests for ovarian cancer and breast cancer in Asian women.

Slightly Larger Pool

New guidelines say that more women may benefit from genetic testing for hereditary breast or ovarian cancer, according to the Los Angeles Times.

After reviewing more than 100 studies, the panel issued recommendations focused on women with a personal or family history of BRCA1/2-related cancers or high-risk ancestry.

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

The firm will begin a verification study later this month using its cell-sorting platform and molecular analysis tool on patients with a pelvic mass scheduled for surgery.

The company will test samples from women treated with an investigational combination of AstraZeneca's PARP inhibitor olaparib and immunotherapy tremelimumab.

An international team documented TP53 mutation-related genomic changes across dozens of cancer types using data generated with five platforms for the Cancer Genome Atlas project.
