Companion Diagnostics

News on companion diagnostics and drug/test co-development.

Promega will develop its microsatellite instability assay as a companion diagnostic for Incyte's anti-PD-1 drug candidate retifanlimab in endometrial cancer.

The tests will be developed to identify NSCLC patients with ALK fusions and EGFR Exon20 insertion mutations who respond to mobocertinib or brigatinib.

The company will work with university researchers to evaluate its predictive immune modeling technology in personalizing the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Thermo Fisher said the assay is the first and, so far, only FDA-approved test of its kind for a targeted treatment for RET fusion-positive NSCLC.

The agency approved the drug for metastatic, RET fusion-positive, non-small cell lung cancer patients who are identified by an FDA-approved test.
