ArcherDx has leveraged next-generation sequencing to develop and commercialize more than 325 research-use-only products and a pan-solid tumor diagnostic test.

Under the deal, the companies aim to develop a companion diagnostic for Bayer's solid tumor drug larotrectinib for the Chinese market.

The FDA has granted accelerated approval to Rozlytrek as a treatment for adult and adolescent patients with NTRK fusion-positive cancers.

The chief executive of the National Health Service in England is to call for tumor-agnostic drugs to be "fast-tracked," according to the Times.

Keytruda and Ibrance demonstrate activity in molecularly defined populations, while a new cohort will explore Gilotrif in tumors with NRG1 fusions.

The companies will work together first to develop a companion diagnostic for Bayer's TRK inhibitor larotrectinib, with opportunities to expand to other drugs and drug candidates thereafter.

The actual match rate is significantly higher than the 10 percent rate the researchers anticipated they would see when the study began in 2017.

In the Phase I/IB study, only patients with NTRK or ROS1 fusions, or an ALK fusion or mutation responded to entrectinib, while patients without these tumor markers didn’t respond.

The overlapping development programs for first-generation larotrectinib and second-generation LOXO-195 signal narrowing drug development timelines in the era of precision oncology.

A report from the Personalized Medicine Coalition finds that more than 40 percent of new drugs approved in the US in 2018 were personalized medicines.
