News and reporting on lung 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 agent has been approved for both treatment-naïve and previously treated patients whose tumors have a mutation that leads to MET exon 14 skipping.

Researchers reported a correlation between ctDNA clearance and progression-free survival in EGFR-positive, MET-amplified patients treated with Tagrisso and savolitinib.

The company will study its investigational drug rigosertib in combination with Opdivo in patients with KRAS-mutated lung cancer.

Christiana Care researchers have identified a unique protospacer adjacent motif site that allows them to knock out the NRF2 gene in tumor cells while leaving normal cells alone.

ArcherDX said the firms aim to apply minimal residual disease monitoring in clinical-trial protocols and for future therapy optimization.

Microbiotica, Cambridge University, and Cancer Research UK will develop microbiome co-therapeutics and gut bacteria signatures for predicting immunotherapy response.

The gap in care suggests that more education and decision support tools are needed to help physicians prescribe drugs based on highly actionable tumor alterations, researchers said.

The companies plan to enroll 1,000 patients with lung cancer to assess whether technology-enabled trial enrollment can expand access to precision oncology to more patients.

The startup is developing a qPCR-based profiling method that could provide results within hours to clinicians treating their cancer patients with immune checkpoint inhibitors.
