The startup is developing a qPCR-based profiling method that could provide results within hours to clinicians treating their cancer patients with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

The approval was based on data showing superior efficacy for Alunbrig compared to Pfizer's Xalkori, especially in patients with brain metastasis.

The approval is based on results of the PROfound trial, which included men with mutations in BRCA1/2 or ATM, and 12 other genes associated with the HRR pathway.

Clinicians will be able to use the assay to help identify patients with metastatic NSCLC for treatment with nivolumab and ipilimumab. 

The firms are developing a kit-based CDx to detect NTRK gene fusions, including NTRK1, NTRK2 and NTRK3, for Bayer's Vitrakvi cancer treatment.
