12:12 EDTAZNMyriad Genetics receives FDA approval of BRACAnalysis CDx
Myriad Genetics (MYGN) announced that it has received approval from the U.S. FDA for BRACAnalysis CDx to be used as the only companion diagnostic in conjunction with AstraZeneca's (AZN) drug Lynparza. Lynparza is the first poly ADP-ribose polymerase inhibitor for patients with germline mutations in BRCA1/2 advanced ovarian cancer who have had three or more lines of chemotherapy. BRACAnalysis CDx is Myriad's first FDA-approved companion diagnostic for use with a novel PARP inhibitor. BRACAnalysis CDx is a highly accurate molecular companion diagnostic test that identifies deleterious or suspected deleterious mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, using DNA obtained from a blood sample. BRACAnalysis CDx was proven in clinical studies to effectively identify patients with BRCA mutations who would be candidates for Lynparza. The approval of BRACAnalysis CDx demonstrates Myriad's commitment to developing companion diagnostics and is the culmination of an intensive, multiyear scientific collaboration with AstraZeneca to advance personalized medicine for women with ovarian cancer.

18:03 EDTNKTRNektar reports data from Phase 3 BEACON study of NKTR-102
Nektar Therapeutics presented biomarker data from a sub-study of the Phase 3 BEACON study of etirinotecan pegol (NKTR-102) which collected and analyzed circulating tumor cell samples from patients in the study. A total of 80% of the 852 patients enrolled in the BEACON trial participated in the CTC sub-study. Among the 627 patients who participated and had evaluable baseline samples, CTCs were detected in 97% of these samples. For the 611 evaluable baseline patient samples which yielded CTCs, potential NKTR-102 target-specific pharmacodynamic biomarkers were detected in the majority of samples. The pharmacodynamic biomarkers assessed in the CTC sub-study were chosen because of their potential ability to predict response to topoisomerase inhibition as well as to measure chemo-sensitivity in metastatic cancer patients
