Adaptive Biotech Launches ClonoSEQ Assay To Detect Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

Adaptive Biotechnologies Corp. (ADPT) Thursday announced the launch of its clonoSEQ Assay to detect minimal residual disease in blood for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or DLBCL.

The commercial-stage biotechnology company said clonoSEQ can assess a patient's MRD status in DLBCL by measuring ctDNA, the fragments of DNA released into the blood from dying cancer cells.

Through the test, clinicians can make a sensitive and quantitative assessment of disease burden and can detect relapse and advise a precise treatment plan.
DLBCL is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma affecting more than 100,000 people in the U.S.
