Dogs age more rapidly in their early years but then age more slowly later on, a DNA methylome analysis found, changing how dogs' ages are translated to human ages.

The company recently presented results from its Aurora assay for multi-cancer screening and plans to launch a $100 test for the US and Chinese markets.

Investigators reported that methylation profiling could distinguish brain cancer subtypes and could detect kidney cancer with striking sensitivity in early experiments.

The firm expects to launch a 510(k)-cleared version of its Bladder EpiCheck recurrence assay early next year followed by an RUO early-stage lung cancer assay.

The company said the funds will support the continued development and commercialization of its genome-wide methylation assay for multi-cancer early detection.

At the AACR annual meeting, researchers shared detection rate data for multi-cancer screening tests from Grail and Thrive Earlier Detection.

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

An integrated analysis involving prostate cancer patients from China highlighted frequent FOXA1 mutations and deletions in two other genes.

The researchers' findings suggest that methylation at those sites might have their effect on lung function through its effect on smoking behaviors.
