Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) Testing

News and reporting on minimal residual disease testing.

Natera alleges Inivata infringes its US Patent Nos. 10,262,755 and 10,597,709, which cover cancer monitoring and molecular residual disease testing.

Invitae is working with Bristol Myers Squibb, Janssen, Novartis, and Genentech to advance an NGS panel to gauge the efficacy of AML treatments in trials.

The company aims to use the methylation technology from its multi-cancer screening assay to detect minimal residual disease in early-stage cancer patients.

Since the commercial launch of its technology last year, the firm has been validating it in studies with academic groups and pharmaceutical companies.

In a note to investors, Piper Sandler analysts wrote that the upgrade reflects increased confidence in Grail and Illumina's core next-generation sequencing business.

Adaptive is rebranding its immunoSeq Dx assay as T-Detect and plans to submit for an EUA for a COVID-19 T-Cell response test by the end of the year.

In a non-exclusive deal, GlaxoSmithKline will use Adaptive Biotechnology's NGS-based ClonoSeq test to assess MRD across its hematology portfolio.

Development revenues for the Seattle-based firm ticked up 5 percent to $15.0 million in Q3, partially offset by a 3 percent dip in sequencing revenues.

The startup aims to combine its microfluidic platform with a circulating tumor DNA-based assay offered by a potential partner and launch the test by 2022.

The company plans to show new data for its Signatera oncology test at three upcoming conferences this year, including in breast cancer and bladder cancer.
