The pilot study with the Mayo Clinic is the final step before SkylineDx commences a US trial next year for its molecular test for primary cutaneous melanoma. 

The new project will be the second stage of the QSkin study, which has documented the disease in 44,000 Australians and developed a melanoma risk predictor.

The company reported $10.7 million in total revenues for the quarter and said test report volume for its DecisionDx-Melanoma test grew 27 percent.

The company markets two tests for skin cancer, including DecisionDx-Melanoma for identifying high-risk Stage I and II cutaneous melanoma patients.

In PLOS this week: analysis of polygenic risk scores for skin cancer, chronic pain GWAS, and more.

Analyzing mutational signatures in cancer cell lines and xenografts, investigators identified mutagenic processes that do or don't remain active in vitro.

Researchers documented genetic associations, trait heritability, and more with data from GWAS on 778 binary or non-binary traits in UK Biobank participants.

The blood-based test, called Melaseq, measures 38 circulating microRNAs that regulate processes that melanoma cells undergo as they become malignant.
