The companies had agreed in early 2018 to collaborate on the development of technologies to support precision oncology initiatives, but Roche said "priorities" have changed.

The FDA approved FoundationOne CDx as a companion diagnostic for alpelisib in combination with fulvestrant to treat certain PIK3CA-mutated breast cancers.

Roche noted that it expects the European Commission to approve trastuzumab emtansine in the near future, based on the EMA committee's recommendation.

More individuals treated with BRAF- and MEK-targeted drugs were still alive after four years than would be expected with conventional chemo drugs.

An interim analysis of the IMpower110 study showed that the drug performed better as a first-line treatment than chemotherapy in these patients.

An IASLC survey showed that molecular testing is not performed in line with expert guidelines, which means only a minority of lung cancer patients are benefitting from precision oncology.

The drugmaker will present data from the Impower110 trial at an upcoming meeting and submit the data to regulatory authorities.

The cancer immunotherapy regimen and companion diagnostic test will be available in Europe for patients with triple-negative breast cancer who express PD-L1. 

In response to CMS reopening its national coverage determination to address its germline testing policy, stakeholders point out areas of concern and confusion.  

The recommendation is based on a study in which NSCLC patients without EGFR mutations or ALK rearrangements lived longer on the combo than just on chemo.
