it is san diego-based pathway genomics. pathway raised $40 million in its last round of fund-raising. >> it's, like, the most amazing thing. >> reporter: and raised its profile when one of its genetic tests was featured on "keeping up with the kardashians." >> mitch mulinex from pathway genomics. >> nice to see you. >> reporter: what caughture attention was the test pathway launched in september. >> introducing pathway genomics' revolutionary test-- cancer intercept, detect and monitor. >> reporter: available by physician order for as little as $299, pathway's marketing claimed it could do what others say is years away. >> cancer intercept can detect a growing tumor in the body before the patient may notice symptoms. >> reporter: a few weeks ago, we visited pathway to ask them about their claims. before we sat down with the c.e.o., jim plante, they played us that marketing video. we just watched a video upstairs. >> right.
liquid biopsy will detect cancer before symptoms. >> may, may. >> reporter: that's not what the video says. >> it says may. we don't way "will." we say may. >> reporter: you don't make the claim that you can detect cancer? >> we say the information can be used to help guide potential early-- early diagnosis. >> reporter: we also asked plante about this chart showing the advantages of their liquid biopsy over a traditional tissue biopsy. >> we never say it replaces solid tissue biopsy. >> reporter: this chart looks like an either/or, jim, doesn't it? >> it's not an either/or. >> reporter: tumor biopsy versus election biopsy. >> it's one piece of information that helps guide the physician-patient discussion. . >> while it's good to have extra tools, that doesn't mean we should be using them on our patient outside of research settings.
cancer researcher at stanford. pathway cites his research as evidence their test can detect patients. >> i think we're still years away from that possibility. while we have -- >> reporter: years. >> years. that absolutely requires thousands of patients and long-term trials to prove that. >> reporter: thousands of patients, years of testing, millions of dollars. >> correct. >> reporter: and if a company isn't doing any of those three? >> then i don't think i would order that test. >> reporter: the food and drug administration tells us can considers tests like cancer intercept a major health risk. in september, the f.d.a. sent pathway genomics a letter citing concerns the test did not have adequate clinical validation and may harm the public health. pathway now has three clinical trials under way to study its liquid biopsy, but it all began after the test was already on the market. and, scott, after our interview, pathway did pull that
site. >> pelley: jim, thanks very much. great report. you're probably wondering how these companies are able to sell unproven tests. well, jim will have morthat tomorrow on "cbs this morning." today, federal health officials sent hundreds of additional kits to florida to test for the zika virus. 16 cases are confirmed there, the most of any state. there are at least 64 cases in 16 states and the district of columbia. zika is spread by mosquitoes and is suspected of causing a serious birth defect. will the rocket mortgage take off or is it a fast ride to trouble? the broncos get a parade fit for champions. and this little piggy goes to
if you're taking multiple medications, does your mouth often feel dry? a dry mouth can be a side effect of many medications. but it can also lead to tooth decay and bad breath. that's why there's biotene, available as an oral rinse, toothpaste, spray or gel. biotene can provide soothing relief and it helps keep your mouth healthy too. remember, while your medication is doing you good, a dry mouth isn't.

"let's do the financial crisis again, but with apps" dave weigl of the "washington post" tweeted. >> i know a lot of people interpreted the commercials of saying we're going back to the days of easy money but that's just simply not happening. >> reporter: holden lewis of bankrate.com said the median
