Grail

At the AACR annual meeting, researchers shared detection rate data for multi-cancer screening tests from Grail and Thrive Earlier Detection.

Researchers published the most comprehensive data to date showing that Grail's screening approach can detect and distinguish a significant number of cancers.

The firm plans to raise as much as $250 million, according to the document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Industry experts say a receptive market and investor interest in new technologies have spurred the increase in genomics tools and molecular diagnostics IPOs. 

The company reported that its genome-wide methylation approach could detect 77 percent of stage II cancers in its ongoing case-control CCGA study.

During its earnings call this week, the liquid biopsy firm said it is planning a 10,000-patient trial to test its Lunar assay for colorectal cancer screening.

Take2 was founded by Chinese University of Hong Kong researchers and will commercialize a cell-free DNA test for early cancer detection.

The company presented new data on the performance of a multi-pronged liquid biopsy assay in detecting colorectal cancers across a range of clinical stages.

Excluding IPOs, the funding environment for private venture-backed financing Dx deals in the US and Europe was remarkably similar in 2018 to 2017, according to Silicon Valley Bank.
