PIK3CA

A study of both tissue and blood samples from patients in a small trial found that liquid biopsy may detect putative resistance mutations missed in tissue.

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

Qiagen obtained CE marking for its Therascreen PIK3CA RGQ PCR kit to aid in identifying breast cancer patients with a PIK3CA mutation.

Researchers found that about 12 percent to 15 percent of breast cancer patients carry multiple mutations in the gene, 95 percent of which are double mutations.

Exome sequences from dozens of cervical cancer tumor or primary cell line samples revealed recurrent alterations affecting ERBB2/HER2 and PIK3CA pathways.

The test will be used to identify which advanced or metastatic breast cancer patients with PIK3CA mutations are likely to respond to Novartis' alpelisib.

In a recent study, a pair of researchers found that CNAs in cancer driver genes are better prognostic markers than mutations in the same genes.

Qiagen and Foundation Medicine will develop tissue- and plasma-based companion tests to identify best responders to the PI3K inhibitor alpelisib

The CDx would guide use of Novartis' BYL719 (alpelisib) in combination with fulvestrant for men and postmenopausal women with HR+/HER2- breast cancer.

During the meeting, researchers presented studies on combination immunotherapies and the efficacy of giving molecularly-informed treatments earlier in the disease continuum.
