An expanded license with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for an offshoot of its Cold-PCR technology allows Transgenomic to develop kits that can detect mutations in common cancer-related genes such as KRAS and P53 directly from blood samples and then analyze the variants using multiple sequencing approaches.

The data, while preliminary, suggests that the drug might require a companion diagnostic to establish p53 status prior to treatment, company officials said.
