QIAGEN Launches Companion Test of PIK3CA for Breast Cancer Patients

In May 2019, QIAGEN, a provider of sample and assay technologies for academic and pharmaceutical research, applied testing, and molecular diagnostics based in Germany unveiled its new therascreen PIK3CA RGQ PCR Kit (therascreen PIK3CA Kit). The company recently bagged the U.S. FDA approval for the product as a companion diagnostic test to identify patients suffering breast cancer suitable for treatment with a newly approved therapy called PIQRAY (alpelisib). It is developed and marketed by Novartis.

As per the company, in the U.S., every year, approximately 66,500 patients are diagnosed with metastatic or advanced breast cancer. This new biomarker would be available in all the leading laboratories in the U.S. immediately after the approval. It would also help the company in expanding its portfolio of companion diagnostics and in delivering efficient treatment options to those searching for innovative methods to battle advanced breast cancer.
