Roche gets FDA approval for diagnostic tumour test

Must read

ZURICH (Reuters) – Roche has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration for its Ventana MMR RxDx panel, a diagnostic test to help identify patients with solid tumours which could turn cancerous, the Swiss drugmaker said on Wednesday.

The test evaluates a panel of DNA mismatch repair (MMR) proteins in tumours to provide important treatment information to clinicians, the company said. When MMR is deficient, cells mutate which can lead to cancer.
