QIAGEN and AstraZeneca Collaborate to Develop Liquid Biopsy-Based Companion Diagnostic to Advance EGFR Mutation Profiling in Lung Cancer Patients
Date:7/28/2014

is accelerated through the established network of laboratories already using assays in QIAGEN's industry-leading portfolio of companion diagnostics."

IRESSA is an epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase (EGFR-TK) inhibitor that acts to block signals for cancer cell growth and survival. Certain EGFR gene mutations occur in a significant number of lung cancers, and these mutation-positive tumours are particularly sensitive to IRESSA. QIAGEN and AstraZeneca plan to develop a test that detects 21 EGFR mutations to identify patients most likely to benefit from the therapy, adapting QIAGEN technologies from the FDA-approved therascreen® EGFR RGQ PCR Kit. The new test kit is planned to run on QIAGEN's Rotor-Gene Q system, a member of the QIAsymphony family of automated instruments.

QIAGEN is at the forefront in developing and validating companion diagnostics to guide the selection of medicines in treating cancer and other diseases. In the United States, QIAGEN received FDA approvals in 2012 and 2014 for the therascreen® KRAS RGQ PCR Kit in colorectal cancer and in 2013 for the therascreen EGFR test in NSCLC. Last month, QIAGEN announced a collaboration with Lilly to develop companion diagnostics for simultaneous analysis of DNA and RNA biomarkers in common cancers. Earlier this year, QIAGEN entered into a collaboration with Exosome Diagnostics to develop first-in-class, non-invasive diagnostics for key genetic biomarkers in lung and other cancers. QIAGEN's leading portfolio of liquid biopsy technologies also includes the QIAamp Circulating Nucleic Acid Kit, which is considered to be the gold standard sample technology for the processing of free circulating DNA and RNA, as well as the REPLI-g product line, which enables genomic analysis from single cells.
