non-small cell lung cancer

In the JAMA study, researchers confirmed the previously known clinical and genomic features of NSCLC patients in their large clinico-genomics database.

As of July 1, the Guardant360 test will be considered medically necessary for aiding therapy selection in advanced lung cancer for health plan members of EviCore.

A study presented at the AACR meeting showed that Resolution's ctDx-Lung assay reported more oncogenic fusions than Guardant360 in NSCLC patients.

With RNA sequencing and other data, researchers gauged neoantigen formation, immunoediting, and clonal evolution in non-small cell lung cancers.

The platform, from a University of Illinois at Chicago-led team, separates circulating tumor cells from other cell types using size-dependent inertial migration. 

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

Qiagen's test detects the most frequently occurring somatic mutations in EGFR in less than four hours using real-time PCR on the Rotor-Gene Q platform.

The study authors cautioned that immunological signatures cannot be predicted from tumor mutational burden or microenvironment analysis of a single biopsy alone.

During the meeting, researchers presented studies on combination immunotherapies and the efficacy of giving molecularly-informed treatments earlier in the disease continuum.

The new approval will allow the use of Qiagen's Therascreen EGFR RGQ PCR Kit as a companion diagnostic for Pfizer's Vizimpro in NSCLC patients.
