The panel's developers at UPenn hope to validate and commercialize a non-invasive assay through a startup called Chip Diagnostics.

The plaintiffs allege that TAI's heart transplant rejection test MyTAIHeart infringes on their patent for the non-invasive diagnosis of graft rejection.

Investigators reported on how ctDNA, measured using Natera's patient-specific Signatera assays, corresponded to a patient's disease progression and other biomarkers.

Researchers published the most comprehensive data to date showing that Grail's screening approach can detect and distinguish a significant number of cancers.

The approach, called Lung-CLiP, couples machine learning trained on epigenetic and clonal frequency data with the detection of alterations in blood-borne DNA.

The team has begun analyzing additional analytes in HER2-positive breast cancer patients and will present preliminary results at AACR's annual meeting in May.  

Investigators teased out imaging signals and underlying biology that can differentiate the subset of brain cancers for which tumor DNA can be detected in blood.
