Advances in Clinical Genomics Profiling

Two new studies revealed the prevalence of pathogenic variants in breast cancer-related genes, while highlighting genes that may be most informative in the clinic.

Backed by large public companies and growing prospective data, the first molecular blood tests to screen for multiple cancers are approaching commercialization.

The company aims to use the methylation technology from its multi-cancer screening assay to detect minimal residual disease in early-stage cancer patients.

Researchers uncovered genetic loci that may influence why childhood cancer survivors of African ancestry are more likely to develop therapy-linked cardiomyopathy.

The study, presented at the NSGC annual conference last week, supports the broader use of panel testing for cancer patients suspected of hereditary disease.
