NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEO), a leading provider of oncology testing and global contract research services, announced today the commercial availability of the RaDaR assay, a liquid biopsy test for molecular/minimal residual disease (MRD). MRD is the trace amounts of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) that remain after surgery or other cancer treatment. The announcement comes after several recent publications demonstrating the clinical utility of the RaDaR test, particularly in the breast cancer space, with the CHiRP study published at ASCO 2022, and presentations of data for the TRACER and cTRAK-TN study cohorts at the most recent SABCS conference.

“The RaDaR assay addresses one of the most difficult challenges in oncology diagnostics by allowing oncologists to spot small amounts of cancer cells with greater sensitivity and much earlier than with standard tests,” said Chris Smith, Chief Executive Officer, NeoGenomics. “The detection of minimal residual disease and recurrence is a new frontier in cancer diagnostics that has the potential to significantly impact treatment decisions and ultimately, patient outcomes.”

Results from the RaDaR test can help clinicians determine whether their cancer patients have residual disease after curative intent therapy or surgery. This can help inform treatment decisions for patients, and can be utilized to monitor patients to detect recurrent disease ahead of traditional monitoring methods.

The RaDaR assay has been available over the last year for use in clinical research studies and pharmaceutical collaborations and is now fully available to U.S. clinicians. The RaDaR assay is available to order for breast, colorectal, lung, and head and neck cancer patients.
