Foresight Diagnostics, Inc, a leader in cancer diagnostics and cancer relapse testing, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the company patent No.11,447,833 for the detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) using its personalized phased variant detection platform.

This granted patent covers Foresight’s PhasED-Seq technology and the workflow behind the Foresight Solid Tumor Recurrence Test, an assay used to detect minimum residual disease (MRD) from the plasma of cancer patients using DNA sequencing. The test is custom designed for each patient to track phased variants identified from tumor tissue samples using whole genome sequencing. The test offers unprecedented sensitivity for MRD detection, enabling a limit of detection below one part per million.
