The expert body now recognizes the test's ability to predict whether early-stage breast cancer patients will benefit from extended, adjuvant endocrine therapy.

Hologic said the acquisition of Biotheranostics will give it a company that operates in markets that are adjacent and complementary to its own.

Hologic said that Biotheranostics' PCR-based gene expression tests have been validated in large studies in areas of oncology with high growth potential.

FLEX will include full transcriptome data paired with 800 data points from 10,000 patients, offering researchers the chance to study diverse patient subsets.

The results, presented at SABCS this week, leave open whether the added benefit from chemo seen in premenopausal women may be due to chemo-induced hormone reduction.

The Germany-based company is developing Molecular Cartography, a technology that offers multiplexed analysis of gene expression in tissues.

The spatial molecular imager will be NanoString's next play in a growing market that it says is worth more than $12 billion, including diagnostic applications.

NCI researchers performed a multi-platform study to elucidate the factors that can contribute to a patient's better-than-expected response to a drug.

Developed by researchers at Yale University, the method, called deterministic barcoding in tissue sequencing, can map thousands of genes at 10 micron resolution.

The partners will apply whole-exome and whole-transcriptome analysis to evaluate two existing drugs for squamous cell carcinoma treatment.
