Companion diagnostics, which looks for genetic, protein, or gene expression markers to predict whether a drug works in someone or causes adverse effect, has emerged into an exciting new trend over the last few years. With the cost and hurdle for new drug approval getting higher and higher, pharmaceutical companies begin to explore companion tests for the development of safer and more effective drugs. The value of companion diagnostic tests has already been demonstrated by a number of marketed products, such as Hercep-Test for Herceptin and K-RAS mutation test for Erbutux and Vectibix. Despite these proven successes and ever-increasing awareness of companion diagnostics, pharmaceutical companies still move slowly adopting the new paradigm of co-developing the companion tests along withnew drugs. The regulatory hurdles, viable business strategies, physician acceptance, insurance coverage, and other barriers remain unsettled for this young filed. At the SABPA Science & Technology forum IX, we invite opinion leaders in this field representing pharmaceutical companies, diagnostic companies and other interest groups to share their insights on this rapidly growing field.
