Trovagene leaps on urine-based cancer mutation test news

  • Shares of Trovagene (TROV +16.6%) soar as the company announces the availability of the first urine test for cancer mutation monitoring.
  • The cell-free BRAF test detects and monitors V600E BRAF mutation, replacing tissue sample-based monitoring which "has limited practicality for patient monitoring due to costs, tumor heterogeneity and potential complications from the biopsy process." (PR)
  • Aegis' Raghuram Selvaraju says the news marks "a significant milestone for the company and [is] a core component of the firm's strategy aimed at attaining profitability near-term."
