Advanced diagnostics for cancer represent a major market opportunity for life sciences companies.Many cancer types are on the rise as the aging populations of many countries continue to grow.

As a result, there is an increasing demand for noninvasive, diagnostic assays that can detect cancers earlier, molecularly subtype tumors to guide therapy decisions and monitor cancer recurrence in treated individuals.

Despite advances in treatment, cancer remains the second leading cause of death, worldwide.Cancer exerts a tremendous toll on patients, families and society as a whole.

One pressing need in cancer diagnostics is earlier stage identification, identifying cancer before it has spread to other parts of body.In order to meet this need, a number of companies are using advanced diagnostic platforms to develop and validate assays that detect cancer earlier.

Sanomics, Prenetics, Guardant, Thrive Earlier Detection, AnPac BioMedical and Grail are notable examples.

A second pressing need in cancer is more accurate classification of suspicious lesions or nodules (malignant or benign).Accurate classification leads to better treatment decisions and fewer unnecessary, invasive biopsies.

In the case of lung cancer, peripheral lung nodules are very difficult to biopsy, deep within the small branches of the lung, often beyond the reach of the bronchoscope.Needle biopsy is problematic, carrying the risk of lung collapse and/or infection.

New, non-invasive blood-based tests are needed to assess nodules.

A third, important medical need is for cancer diagnostics that guide therapy decisions.These diagnostics can be used to assess a patient’s likely response to a particular therapy, providing the physician with a guide to subsequent treatments.

This is a growing application for both tissue and liquid-based assays.

These assays establish which of the newer, targeted drugs, including those that block certain molecular pathways, will work most effectively for a given tumor. This convergence of targeted drugs with genomics-based diagnostics leads to a powerful new paradigm in medicine.
