KRAS Biomarkers

News and reporting on KRAS biomarkers.

Data amassed by analytics firm Diaceutics suggests fewer patients are coming into healthcare facilities and missing the chance for diagnosis, molecular testing, and treatment.

The high-throughput S2000 sequencer is the second instrument Genetron Health has received NMPA approval for, following the S5 benchtop instrument last year.

The findings should spur cancer centers to review testing rates and address barriers, said experts from Hackensack University, Cota Healthcare, and Guardant Health. 

The companies will develop tissue-based companion diagnostics for Amgen's investigational treatment AMG 510 for non-small cell lung cancer.

An IASLC survey showed that molecular testing is not performed in line with expert guidelines, which means only a minority of lung cancer patients are benefitting from precision oncology.

Biocartis' Idylla called some colorectal cancer samples negative that Sysmex Inostics's OncoBEAM called positive, but the clinical implications may be complex.

Keytruda and Ibrance demonstrate activity in molecularly defined populations, while a new cohort will explore Gilotrif in tumors with NRG1 fusions.

Researchers used a genome-scale CRISPRi platform to identify genetic interactions with an inhibitor for a mutant form of KRAS in models of lung and pancreatic cancer.

The NGS assay is designed to help physicians to identify non-small cell lung cancer patients who may benefit from eight targeted therapies.

AmoyDx's kit is designed to detect hotspot mutations/fusions in nine genes to help guide treatment decisions for non-small cell lung cancer patients.
