Early Prediction of Resistance to Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors Reported

 Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations that confer sensitivity to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) in non-small cell lung carcinomas paved the way for a precision medicine approach in this neoplastic form. More...

Urine-Based Kidney Transplantation Rejection Risk Assay Launched

 For kidney transplant recipients, prompt and accurate detection of transplant rejection is vital for timely intervention. Unfortunately, the gold standard for diagnosis of rejection is kidney biopsy, an invasive procedure. More...

Genetic Testing Benefits Postmenopausal Women with Breast Cancer

 Germline genetic testing for pathogenic variants (PVs) in cancer susceptibility genes after breast cancer diagnosis may inform cancer treatment, prevention, and testing of relatives. Postmenopausal women with breast cancer had a threefold higher prevalence of pathogenic variants in breast cancer-associated genes than their cancer-free counterparts. More...

Multitarget Stool DNA Predicts Colorectal Neoplasia

 Most colorectal cancers are due to old age and lifestyle factors, with only a small number of cases due to underlying genetic disorders. Screening is effective for preventing and decreasing deaths from colorectal cancer. More...

Liquid Biopsy Assays Target Mutations and Improves Recurrence Prediction

 The concept of creating bespoke or personalized mutation panels to use for cancer recurrence detection and residual disease monitoring is not new at this point. Scientists began piloting these methods several years ago, initially tracking single mutations and then collections of alterations derived from tumor sequencing data. More...

Image: The fully automated Idylla EGFR Mutation Test covers 51 mutations in exons 18–21 in a single cartridge using only one FFPE tissue section from metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) showing a high concordance of >95% compared with reference methods (Photo courtesy of Biocartis).

EGFR Mutation Assay Cartridges Evaluated

 Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths. The management of lung cancer has been aided by the better understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in its initiation and progression and increased usage of molecular testing. More...

Prognostic Values of Platelet Parameters in Gynecological Tumors Patients

 Gynecologic cancers often involve the uterus, ovaries, cervix, vulva, vagina, fallopian tubes, or the peritoneum. The most common gynecologic cancer in the USA is endometrial cancer, followed by ovarian cancer. Many gynecologic cancers manifest as pelvic masses. More...
