Nature Biopharma Dealmakers: Closing the gap on minimal residual disease detection in cancer
Foresight Diagnostics was recently featured in an article in Nature Biopharma Dealmakers, entitled “Closing the Gap on Minimal Residual Disease Detection in Cancer.”
The article features Foresight’s platform that detects circulating tumor DNA at levels below one part-per-million, allowing accurate identification of minimal residual disease well below current levels of detection. Current platforms use SNV-based detection, but detects phased variants (PV), molecules with two or more SNVs, that improves sensitivity.
With lowered detection limits, it is possible to detect residual tumor DNA both during and after treatment to assess efficacy of therapy. Low levels of cancer can be detected up to 200 days earlier than current capabilities affording the patient and provider an opportunity to treat prior to relapse.
