Ventana receives approval from China's FDA for first fully automated IHC companion diagnostic identifying ALK protein expression in lung cancer patients
Date:9/11/2013

TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. (Ventana), a member of the Roche Group, today announced the approval of the VENTANA ALK immunohistochemistry (IHC) assay by the Chinese Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) as a companion diagnostic to aid in the identification of patients for Pfizer's CFDA-approved oncology product XALKORI® (crizotinib). The VENTANA ALK (D5F3) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody assay is designed to identify ALK-positive patients in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients1. The approval is based on a retrospective study that included 1100 Chinese subjects across three national hospitals where the VENTANA assay demonstrated 99.23 percent concordance with Abbott's Vysis ALK Break Apart FISH Probe Kit.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide and in China, with NSCLC being the most common sub-type.  One important biomarker in NSCLC is the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion gene, which is associated with pathologic expression of an ALK fusion protein. The detection of ALK positivity is very important for NSCLC patients because inhibition of the ALK tyrosine kinase has led to tumor shrinkage for ALK-positive patients.  XALKORI® is an oral first-in-class ALK inhibitor that has been shown to block important growth and survival pathways which may shrink or slow the growth of tumors.  It  is indicated for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic ALK-positive NSCLC.

"I am delighted with the successful product registration of ALK IHC in China," says Fatt Heng Wong, GM, Roche Diagnostics China.  "It allows us to offer our customers ALK diagnostic testing in non-small cell lung cancer—one of the most prevalent and deadly cancers in China—as part of o
