The study suggests that pediatric low-grade gliomas driven by genetic rearrangements tend to be diagnosed earlier and have better outcomes than those driven by SNVs.

After a study showed that patients who received guidance from Perthera's tumor board lived longer than those who didn't, the company wants to make its technology more accessible.

The company trimmed its net loss fell by three-fourths to $11.8 million in the quarter as it continues to rein in costs.

Paired tumor/germline analysis is not routinely done in cancer care, but some labs are starting to report incidental germline findings alongside patient's tumor profiles.

Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Recent studies question the clinical utility of tumor mutational burden as a biomarker for immuno-oncology response, and the FDA clearance includes no therapeutic indications.

The approval of its Omics Core assay for tumor-normal mutational profiling opens the door for payor reimbursement, which is key to reaching profitability, NantHealth said.

The company's software-related revenues grew year over year, but its sequencing and molecular analysis revenues declined.

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