Despite plenty of hype and some growing pains, artificial intelligence is starting to prove its value in academic and community cancer centers.

Combined DNA/RNA-seq efforts in various settings could lead to new ways of treating kids with drugs meant for adults or to the development of new therapies.

Almac said that the assay will be used in a clinical study of repotrectinib (TPX-0005), an investigational, next-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor.

Never smokers make up an increasing portion of lung cancer patients, and researchers are working to tease out their genetic and environmental risk.

The protocol involves using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to knock out the NRF2 gene in KRAS-positive NSCLC patients who have become resistant to chemotherapy.

Cancer Moonshot-funded teams are profiling pre-cancers in an effort to establish targeted treatment, detection, and prevention methods that can be applied before cancers form.

Researchers used a genome-scale CRISPRi platform to identify genetic interactions with an inhibitor for a mutant form of KRAS in models of lung and pancreatic cancer.

The company said adopters are ordering tests in areas of great interest, like CTC and blood biomarker monitoring, despite a lack of reimbursement.
