Quest Diagnostics Introduces MelaNodal Predict™ for Personalized Melanoma Treatment

Quest Diagnostics, a prominent name in diagnostic information services, has unveiled MelaNodal Predict™, an innovative predictive gene expression test designed to tailor treatment decisions for melanoma patients. The test, which uses cutting edge technology produced in collaboration with SkylineDx and the Mayo Clinic, is currently available for order through Quest Diagnostics and Dermpath Diagnostics. 

MelaNodal Predict™ is a combination of tumor age and tumour density analysis with advanced gene expression profiling, which allows healthcare professionals to identify patients at different risk for nod metastasis. In addition, healthcare providers may prevent patients from unnecessarily invasive procedures such as sentinel lymph node biopsy by incorporating SkylineDx's technology into Quest's extensive expertise and nationwide coverage.

The launch of MelaNodal Predict™ marks a significant stride in personalized medicine for melanoma treatment, offering clinicians actionable insights to optimize patient care and outcomes.

Labcorp Introduces FDA-Cleared Blood Test for Severe Preeclampsia Risk Assessment

A new FDA cleared Blood Test to assess the risk of serious preeclampsia during pregnancy has been launched by Labcorp, a leading global provider of laboratory services. Developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific and recognized as one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions of 2023, the test measures two angiogenic biomarkers—sFlt-1 and PlGF—associated with preeclampsia.

The test, validated by a PRAECIS study involving over 1,000 pregnant women, has been shown to provide clinicians with a ratio of biomarkers that can help identify patients at risk for developing severe preeclampsia in 2 weeks. Pregnant women who test positive can benefit from enhanced surveillance and expedited care, mitigating potential complications.
