The agency said it is sensitive to stakeholder concerns and is working with MACs to adjust claims processing systems.

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have found patterns in RNA sequencing data that have led to possible treatments for cancers with no actionable mutations.

The NGS assay is designed to help physicians to identify non-small cell lung cancer patients who may benefit from eight targeted therapies.

A study questioned the cost-effectiveness of the test in clinically low-risk women, but the firm stressed that a wealth of evidence continues to support its use under current guidelines.

Researchers will first compare liquid with tissue-based tumor profiling before implementing it as a way to enroll patients into the targeted drug trials.

The MammaSeq assay comprises 79 genes and 1,369 mutations in breast cancer that could be used as potential downstream therapeutic targets. 

The American Society of Breast Surgeons updated consensus guidelines to recommend multigene panel testing for patients with cancer, including those who were tested many years ago.

Researchers identified PTEN mutations, MAP kinase pathway alterations, and other features linked to anti-PD-1 response in individuals with the brain cancer.

Invitae and Tulane University researchers found 37 percent of patients with positive germline results were not covered by testing guidelines in place at the time.

The test uses multiplex PCR fragment analysis with Promega-designed five-mononucleotide repeat markers to detect the MSI-high phenotype within tumor tissues.
