Colorectal Cancer

News and reporting on colorectal cancer.

The company said proceeds will accelerate the ongoing FDA registrational study of its blood-based colorectal cancer screening test and further its extended pipeline.

The firm said its genetic tests for breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers and melanoma assess a patient's personal cancer risks and guide personalized prevention.

The company, which uses fruit fly "avatars" to screen drugs, will be collaborating with London IVD Co-operative and Genomics England to test their technology in GI cancer patients.

The researchers said their new study supports the clinical utility of their test, which combines genomic and drug screening analyses of organoids to guide cancer treatment.

The updated guidelines now also highlight the use of PCR and next-generation sequencing to determine microsatellite instability. 

The recently renamed company will use the project to develop a new version of its next-generation sequencing assay for cancer mutational analysis.

The Phase Ib/II trial will assess dosage and antitumor activity of MEN1611 plus Erbitux for patients with PIK3CA-mutated, RAS and RAF wildtype advanced colorectal cancer.

The company recently presented results from its Aurora assay for multi-cancer screening and plans to launch a $100 test for the US and Chinese markets.

The approval is supported by a randomized trial showing that pembrolizumab nearly doubled progression-free survival compared to the standard chemotherapy regimen.

The Phase II DESTINY-CRC01 and DESTINY-Gastric01 underscore the importance of HER2 testing in patients with colorectal cancers and gastric cancers, respectively.
