circulating tumor DNA

The company is using newly raised funds to support a disseminated trial model, which it said will help it keep its plans to finish the study by the end of 2021.

The agency approved the test for use across solid tumors and with multiple companion diagnostic indications including one for prostate cancer and three for lung cancer.

The company said proceeds will accelerate the ongoing FDA registrational study of its blood-based colorectal cancer screening test and further its extended pipeline.

By allowing rare cancer patients to receive genomic profiling and treatments locally, the study investigators are hoping to expand access to molecularly informed care throughout the US.

The assay provides comprehensive genomic information to oncologists from a blood draw, using targeted next-generation sequencing of circulating cell-free DNA.

Results from the Phase II INSPIRE study showed that change in ctDNA from baseline, as gauged by customized assays, predicted response to pembrolizumab.

The company is employing Guardant360 in a Phase III trial assessing the efficacy of the drug both in a larger population and in women who test positive for ESR1 mutations.

With at-home testing and online, patient-centered reports, the CureCloud initiative sets out to break down barriers to targeted treatment options while building a broad patient dataset.

The initiative will offer a liquid biopsy tool that only requires a blood draw for cancer treatment selection instead of a tissue biopsy. 

Analyzing both circulating tumor DNA and circulating tumor cells, investigators could classify patients into groups with significantly higher and lower recurrence risk.
