Guardant Health has announced that it has signed a deal with Northwestern University making Guardant360 the preferred liquid biopsy test for patients with advanced cancer treated at Northwestern's Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Guardant said that the agreement also covers multiple large-scale prospective clinical trials in which researchers at the Lurie center will use its technology. Lurie Center Director Leonidas Platanias said in a statement that Lurie's growing OncoSET (Sequence, Evaluate, Treat) program will benefit from Guardant Health's non-invasive technology.

On the research side, every patient evaluated within the Lurie Cancer Center OncoSET Program will be enrolled in one of several prospective clinical trials exploring additional clinical uses of liquid biopsy, Guardant said. The partners also plan to track the outcomes of patients whose treatment selection was guided by Guardant360.

"This collaboration will help us determine the value of prospective molecular monitoring in patients with advanced disease by exploring the potential of liquid biopsy specifically, and precision oncology in general, to impact lives," added Northwestern's Massimo Cristofanilli, director of the OncoSET program.
