Date:12/13/2013

TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. (Ventana), a member of the Roche Group, today announces the VENTANA HER2/neu (4B5) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody assay as a companion diagnostic1 for detecting HER2 protein expression for patients who, in countries where they are approved, may be appropriate candidates for Perjeta® (pertuzumab) and KadcylaTM (ado-trastuzumab emtansine). Previously, the VENTANA HER2 (4B5) test was labeled only for the identification of HER2-positive breast and gastric cancer patients for whom Herceptin® (trastuzumab) treatment is being considered.

"In line with our mission to improve the lives of all patients afflicted with cancer, our HER2 assay will continue to provide important diagnostic information for breast cancer treatment decisions," says Mara G. Aspinall, President, Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. "We are proud to be the preferred tissue diagnostics partner for our Roche Pharma colleagues.  This announcement also signifies the unique ability of Roche to deliver healthcare to cancer patients worldwide."

Breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide for women2 and the second leading cause of female cancer-related deaths3.  Approximately one-fifth of breast cancers are classified as HER2- positive and if left untreated are associated with poorer clinical outcomes4.  Defining HER2 status allows the treatment team to better identify which patients may be appropriate candidates for a treatment regimen with a HER2 targeted medicine.
