In two studies at ESMO, researchers demonstrated the ability of combined biomarker approaches to predict the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitors.

After a two-year evaluation in advanced non-small cell lung cancers with Allegheny Health Network, the payor will cover the test for its regional members.

The tests will be developed to identify NSCLC patients with ALK fusions and EGFR Exon20 insertion mutations who respond to mobocertinib or brigatinib.

Thermo Fisher said the assay is the first and, so far, only FDA-approved test of its kind for a targeted treatment for RET fusion-positive NSCLC.

Amoy will develop its AmoyDx Pan Lung Cancer PCR Panel (9-in-1 Plus) as a companion diagnostic test for Haihe's MET kinase inhibitor Glumetinib.

The financing will be used for the development and clinical validation of oncology panels for treatment selection and patient monitoring with an initial focus on NSCLC.

AmoyDx aims to develop a companion diagnostic for Merck KGaA's non-small cell lung cancer treatment Tepmetko, which was recently approved in Japan.

Under the terms of the agreement Thermo Fisher will retain the rights to commercialize the companion test globally and seek regulatory approval.

The assay provides comprehensive genomic information to oncologists from a blood draw, using targeted next-generation sequencing of circulating cell-free DNA.

With revenues of $143,000, the company incurred a net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.14 per share, for the quarter, exceeding the consensus Wall Street estimate.
