Thermo will develop a test using its Oncomine Precision Assay to identify IDH1- and IDH2-positive low-grade glioma patients for treatment with Agios' vorasidenib.

The researchers believe using cerebral spinal fluid will enable them to identify brain tumors with a higher sensitivity than with blood samples.

The researchers aim to offer the half-hour diagnostic assay for use during neurosurgery to help clinicians pursue the best treatment for patients with gliomas.  

This drug is the first FDA-approved IDH1 inhibitor and will be used to treat adult patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia.

The companies will work together on a next-generation sequencing-based companion diagnostic for Agios' investigational cancer drug ivosidenib.
