Cepheid Receives FDA Market Authorization for Xpert MTB/RIF
Date:7/25/2013

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Cepheid (Nasdaq: CPHD) today announced it has received market authorization from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for its Xpert® MTB/RIF test. The review decision was based on the de novo 510(k) review process, which allows novel products without predicates to be down-classified and brought to market. Xpert MTB/RIF is designed for the rapid molecular detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTB-complex) DNA and, in specimens where MTB-complex DNA is detected, Xpert MTB/RIF also detects rifampin-resistance associated mutations of the rpoB gene.

"Now, U.S. clinicians can leverage those same transformative results not only for the detection of TB (tuberculosis), but also for detecting whether the strain may be multidrug-resistant, requiring more intensive drug therapy."

Designed for use on Cepheid's GeneXpert® Systems, Xpert MTB/RIF not only detects the presence of MTB-complex DNA, but also mutations associated with resistance to rifampin, a critical first-line drug for treatment of the disease and a reliable surrogate marker of strains that may be multidrug-resistant (MDR-TB). Patients with multidrug-resistant TB need more intensive and prolonged therapy. Xpert MTB/RIF will enable U.S. clinicians to significantly improve patient outcomes by providing rapid results that guide therapy decisions early in the course of disease, not 6 weeks later as is the case with standard laborat
