At least half a dozen cancer phenotypes showed significant associations with GWAS variant-based polygenic risk scores in a new phenome-wide association study.

The company beat the analysts' average estimate on the top line but missed it on the bottom line as it posted a net loss of $3.2 million.

The company recognized $20 million in Q1 revenues and grew its testing volume by 18 percent.

Veracyte will use its Afirma assay to analyze thyroid cancers and inform Loxo's drug development pipeline for targeted therapies.

The payor published positive medical policy coverage for the ThyGenX and ThyraMir assays for thyroid nodules deemed indeterminate by standard cytopathological analysis.

Interpace said that its two thyroid tests are now covered for over 280 million patients nationwide including Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and national and regional health plans.

The company plans to launch an RNA sequencing-based test to help subtype and determine treatment for thyroid cancer, and a test to detect noninvasive lung cancer.

The payor has agreed to cover Interpace's ThyGenX and ThyraMir, for thyroid nodules deemed indeterminate by standard cytopathological analysis.

Interpace can now offer the new service alone or in conjunction with ThyGenX next-generation sequencing oncogene panel in New York.

Veracyte attributed its lower Afirma sales in part to slowing down the rollout of an updated version of the test that relies on RNA sequencing.
