Merck

The company filed the application based on the PAOLA-1 data, which showed HRD-positive ovarian cancer patients saw pronounced benefit from the combo.

AstraZeneca and Merck also announced they have filed for approval of Lynparza in patients who have mutations in more than a dozen homologous recombination repair genes.

The drug is approved as a maintenance treatment for platinum-responsive metastatic pancreatic cancer patients with germline BRCA1/2 mutations.

The company is using the test to direct patient enrollment and treatment stratification in a trial of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) combination treatments.

Clinicians can use the PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx assay to help identify head and neck squamous cell carcinoma patients for treatment with Merck's Keytruda in Europe.

Promega's microsatellite instability technology will be used to develop an on-label, solid tumor companion diagnostic for pembrolizumab.

The digital pathology company, which pulled in $60 million earlier this year, said it has raised over $90 million since it was founded in 2016.

The assay was developed in partnership with Merck and is intended as a companion diagnostic for that firm's anti-PD-L1 immunotherapy.

The test will be used to identify which metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer patients harbor germline BRCA mutations and will likely benefit from Lynparza.

The diagnostic can now be used to identify patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma who may benefit from first-line treatment with Keytruda.
