The firm's new RT-PCR assay identifies 20 gene fusion between NTRK1/2/3 and other genes, allowing clinicians to potentially detect rare forms of different cancers.
The firm is moving into a larger facility after its first full year of profitability and planning new hires to support its plans to bring liquid biopsy kits through the FDA.
Plans are in place for a Guardant360-based assay to predict response to AsztraZeneca's Tagrisso and for a blood-based TMB test using the larger GuardantOmni panel.
Research continues to show that it is possible to detect genetic signs of cancer in a blood sample without the need to measure specific oncogenic mutations.
At the conference, researchers presented data from a number of studies using molecular diagnostic tools to better characterize breast cancer recurrence and treatment outcomes.
Qiagen and Foundation Medicine will develop tissue- and plasma-based companion tests to identify best responders to the PI3K inhibitor alpelisib
With a DNA methylation atlas and deconvolution algorithm, researchers are attempting to trace cfDNA back to tissue sources in healthy or ill individuals.
A circulating tumor DNA analysis identified somatic mutations in more than 64 percent of advanced non-small cell lung cancer cases, including some drug targets.
Investigators published an initial report on the method, which they call cfMeDIP-Seq, last week, and are now hoping to move to analysis of samples from longitudinal health studies.
Investigators showed that sequencing cell-free DNA could detect microsatellite instability, structural rearrangements, and clonal hematopoiesis in patients with metastatic disease.
A new analysis founds that nearly half the late-stage clinical trials sponsored by a US National Cancer Institute program influence patient care.
Technology Review reports that sickle cell patients are optimistic about gene editing to treat their disease, but are worried about how available it will be.
