The center received a response to its initial submission to the NY State Department of Health in February and will re-submit by the end of this month.

 

Clinical researchers at AACR discussed a wide range of approaches focusing on several different potential use-cases in the detection or assessment of early cancers.

The company presented new data on the performance of a multi-pronged liquid biopsy assay in detecting colorectal cancers across a range of clinical stages.

Investigators from the pharma concluded that most liquid biopsy false positives and negatives could be traced to technical specifics of individual tests.

The firm saw total revenues of $859,526 for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2018 compared to $995,226 in the same period of 2017.

Funds raised will help accelerate commercialization of the firm's InVisionFirst-Lung liquid biopsy test and support development of the firm's platform for new indications

The firms plan to use Natera's cell-free DNA liquid biopsy assay to monitor patients' response to Amal's cancer vaccine in combination with immunotherapy.

The company, which previously focused on the development of multiplex PCR assays, is hoping to make its ATOM-seq technology available for research use later this year.

The company hopes to commercialize the assay, and is pursuing a larger validation study, but may face competitors who have also staked claims for this indication.
