The company announced this week the expansion of a genetic testing program for US patients with inherited retinal disease that it has run with partners since 2017.

Under the agreement, the companies plan to offer combined genetic and biochemical testing services out of Blueprint's clinical laboratory in Seattle.

In a clinical study Baylor researchers found that PreSeek, which Natera markets as Vistara, reliably detected dominant disorders in more than 400 pregnancies.

The firm's fourth quarter preliminary revenues increased by 11 percent to $865 million year over year, while full-year revenues jumped by 21 percent to $3.3 billion.

Rady Children's will provide rapid WGS as a first-line diagnostic test for newborns in the intensive care unit at four participating hospitals in California.

The companies will offer free testing to  more rapidly identify individuals with certain mutations, supporting Inozyme's efforts to develop and test new treatments.

Seventy-eight percent of participants had at least one positive carrier screening result and 3.5 percent had a medically actionable secondary finding.

The pilot builds off the MyCode Community Research Health Initiative, for which Regeneron has been sequencing the exomes of Geisinger participants.

The firm will provide its genetic testing, counseling, and cascade screening to patients seen at a group of US health systems, focusing on CDC Tier 1 conditions.

The company recently switched its diseases gene panels to an exome-based platform and is preparing to open a CLIA laboratory in California.
