Agilent Technologies: PD-L1 IHC 28-8 PharmDx Gets CE-IVD Mark Approval

Agilent Technologies Inc. (A) has received CE-IVD mark approval for the PD-L1
IHC 28-8 pharmDx to guide options for the first-line treatment of adult patients with HER2-negative advanced or metastatic gastric, gastroesophageal junction, or esophageal cancers. When used in conjunction with the PD-L1 IHC 28-8 pharmDx as a companion test, treatment with Opdivo in combination with chemotherapy provides the first and only
PD-1-directed treatment to show superior overall survival and progression-free survival when compared to chemotherapy alone, the company said.

"The added indication of PD-L1 IHC 28-8 pharmDx will give physicians in Europe important information to inform first-line treatment decisions for patients with these common and potentially deadly cancers," said Sam Raha, president of the Agilent's Diagnostics and Genomics Group.
