NEW YORK – Thermo Fisher Scientific and Daiichi Sankyo said today that they have partnered to develop a companion diagnostic for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

It will be designed to identify NSCLC patients with mutations in HER2 who may be eligible for treatment with Enhertu (DS-8201), a HER2-directed antibody-drug-conjugate under development at Daiichi that is currently being tested in Phase II for HER2-mutated or HER2-overexpressing NSCLC.
