Results of the study, published in JAMA, highlight ongoing and future challenges in translating the promise of comprehensive genomics into clinical benefit.

The Israeli firm recently announced the results of a multicenter study of its Bladder EpiCheck test in addition to netting €2.5 million in EU funding to develop a lung cancer assay.

The company said proceeds will be used for working capital, and may also be used to acquire or invest in complementary businesses or technologies.

The test uses changes in DNA methylation patterns for the early detection of lung cancer and is based on the same platform as the firm's bladder cancer test.

The firm has reached a deal with certain investors for the purchase of units comprising OncoCyte common shares and warrants to purchase shares.

Veracyte will offer 5 million shares at $10.25 per share. It has granted underwriters an option to purchase an additional 750,000 shares.

The firm beat analysts' consensus estimates on both the top and bottom lines, and it raised its 2018 annual revenue guidance.

The company will work with researchers at UCSD's Moores Cancer Center on two studies of patients with breast, lung, and colon cancers.

The firm has begun validating its porphyrin molecule marker test for use with flow cytometry at four sites and anticipates adding four, or more, to complete the validation.

Researchers have developed a four-protein panel for identifying patients with a history of smoking who are at high risk of being diagnosed with lung cancer.
