An analysis of societal and health system cost-effectiveness and outcomes points to the benefits of expanding pathogenic BRCA1/2 variant testing in six countries.

A case series in partnership with My Gene Counsel to highlight the challenges genetics professionals and oncologists are grappling with as genetic testing is increasingly used in patient care.

The drug, which is designed to restore normal functioning of p53, has allowed a promising proportion of TP53-mutated MDS patients to receive stem cell transplants in early trials.

With studies showing BRCA-mutated patients have a greater magnitude of benefit, oncologists grapple with complex treatment decisions in BRCA mutation-free cases.

The MAGENTA and ProGen trials showed that video-based and online education can increase the number of patients getting tested compared to traditional approaches.  

Results show population screening can pick up risky BRCA1/2 mutations in men and women from Ashkenazi Jewish populations in the US, though engagement challenges remain.

The survival data from the Phase III SOLO2 trial confirms to experts that olaparib should be the standard of care maintenance therapy for patients in this setting.

The agency reviewed data showing that HRD-positive patients on the olaparib/bevacizumab combination had median progression-free survival of 37.2 months.

The drugmaker will promote Zejula without a biomarker as a first-line maintenance option, and Myriad will highlight that patients with HRD are most likely to benefit.

The first-in-class VT1021 would treat patients with various cancers whose tumors have high CD36 expression by reprogramming the tumor immune microenvironment.
