Almac is developing the assay to enroll patients for clinical trials used to develop repotrectinib, an investigational tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
The test is intended to identify patients with ROS1, NTRK, and ALK gene fusions for treatment with TP's investigational drug repotrectinib.
The company plans to outlicense the assay, developed using a custom Affymetrix microarray, to an interested partner.
The collaboration will streamline patient sample analysis to determine whether they should be included in clinical trials for molecularly targeted treatment.
The partners plan to develop a computational platform that automates pipelines and processes for biomarker discovery, drug recovery and repositioning, and more.
The deal allows UK-based Almac to develop NGS assays on the Illumina MiSeqDx instrument.
