NEC said the deal will bolster its cancer immunotherapy development programs, which are focused on ovarian cancer and head and neck cancer.

The software firm will use NGS data from patient biopsies to create molecular profiles and offer individualized cancer treatment recommendations.

The study plans to recruit close to 300 patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer, with half being treated based on liquid biopsy results.

Practical, technological, and systemic challenges are putting pathologists in tough positions, facing competing demands for molecular analysis of limited biological samples.

Chi Van Dang discussed major breakthroughs now moving out into community practice, continued challenges, and promising new areas oncologists may want to watch.

The researchers found differences in mutational patterns among their African-American patients and that liquid biopsies seem to catch metastases early.

Meeting presentations supported tweaking the clinical interpretation of Genomic Health's Oncotype DX and bolstered Biotheranostics' Breast Cancer Index.

The California health system has expanded its partnership with CancerIQ to integrate risk assessment and oncology patient management into its EHR.

The company has formalized an existing relationship by acquiring Pharmatech, hoping to directly integrate the firm's "right on time" trial matching service with its own molecular testing.
