Qiagen terminated the first project for an NGS-based clinical trial assay after its pharmaceutical partner's phase II drug trial failed to meet its endpoint.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission charged Elizabeth Holmes, the founder and CEO of Theranos, with fraud.

The company issued more than 1.8 million shares of its common stock to several of its trade creditors to erase debt that it owed them, Precipio said in an SEC document.

The company, which also said it is short on funds, may have to pay $18.3 million to Hudson Bay Master Fund if forebearance is not granted for the default.
