RET

The firms plan to use Thermo Fisher's Oncomine Dx Target test to identify cancer patients with RET alterations who might benefit from Lilly's LOXO-292.

AmoyDx and Premia will provide large-scale cancer patient screening in Asia to support Loxo-292 RET inhibitor clinical development.

The NGS assay is designed to help physicians to identify non-small cell lung cancer patients who may benefit from eight targeted therapies.

Researchers will first compare liquid with tissue-based tumor profiling before implementing it as a way to enroll patients into the targeted drug trials.

AmoyDx's kit is designed to detect hotspot mutations/fusions in nine genes to help guide treatment decisions for non-small cell lung cancer patients.

The assay can identify KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and EGFR gene mutations, as well as 19 gene rearrangements of the ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1, and MET genes from FFPE.

The companies will develop a version of Illumina's TruSight 170 sequencing panel for two of Loxo's targeted oncology drugs.
