circulating tumor DNA

In one study, the UK-based firm found that its RaDaR assay detected circulating tumor DNA in lung cancer patients up to a year before standard clinical progression occurred in most of the cases. 

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

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

In a retrospective study, investigators saw a survival benefit among head and neck cancer patients with high TMB treated with checkpoint inhibitors. 

The field is collecting evidence supporting genomics-guided care but experts are still awaiting prospective data and grappling with other challenges.

Presentations at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's virtual annual meeting included new findings relevant to both blood- and spinal fluid-based approaches.

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.

ArcherDx will develop sequencing-based circulating tumor DNA assays for use in AstraZeneca's recently launched Phase III MERMAID-1 trial of durvalumab (Imfinzi).

Investigators are building upon an initial case study that allowed them to assess how well ctDNA captured a cancer's full genomic heterogeneity compared to tissue biopsies.

At the AACR annual meeting, researchers shared detection rate data for multi-cancer screening tests from Grail and Thrive Earlier Detection.
