The Power Of Partnership In Precision Medicine

 

FoundationOne CDx was recently approved to identify mutations that lead to MET exon 14 skipping in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and match patients with a new targeted therapy, which was approved in parallel.

Learn more on our blog about how this approval demonstrates the power of cancer precision medicine in action and the role that comprehensive genomic profiling plays.

FDA Approves Foundation Medicine's FoundationOne®Liquid CDx, a Comprehensive Pan-Tumor Liquid Biopsy Test with Multiple Companion Diagnostic Indications for Patients with Advanced Cancer.

We are thrilled to announce the FDA approval of FoundationOne®Liquid CDx, FMI’s comprehensive liquid biopsy test, for all solid tumors. This approval is such an important milestone because we can now offer oncologists multiple FDA-approved, high-quality comprehensive genomic profiling options. From a simple blood draw, FoundationOne Liquid CDx can provide physicians and patients with molecular insights to inform treatment decisions whether that be targeted therapies, clinical trials or immunotherapy.
