SEATTLE (GenomeWeb) – A new analysis from Invitae suggests a significant proportion of informative, pathogenic cancer risk variants may be missed by focusing germline genetic tests in cancer patients on relatively few genes with potential ties to an individual's cancer type.

Invitae's Edward Esplin outlined results from the study during a session on cancer risk assessment and management at the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics annual meeting here on Friday.

This webinar will discuss findings from the study, in which molecular residual disease (MRD) was assessed using circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) without prior mutational knowledge in oligometastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) patients who had received neoadjuvant chemotherapy. This study also investigated urine as an alternative analyte for ctDNA MRD detection.
