Companion Diagnostics

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

Under one agreement, LabCorp will help Baptist Health establish a core lab. Its deal with Definiens is aimed at companion diagnostics development.

Celcuity's HER2 assay will be used to assess Puma Bio's Nerlynx and chemotherapy on patients with early-stage triple-negative breast cancer.

The collaboration agreement includes support for development, regulatory submission, and commercialization of tests to guide use of Novartis' drug portfolio.

The test is designed to detect cancer-driver gene variants associated with certain targeted solid tumor therapies, and is validated as a companion diagnostic.

The test is approved to gauge germline BRCA mutations in advanced breast cancer patients who may benefit from treatment with Pfizer's PARP inhibitor Talzenna.
