- Fluciclovine F18 Diagnostic Imaging Agent Approved to Detect Recurrent Prostate Cancer
- Tecentriq for Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer
- Afatinib Receives New Indication for Advanced Squamous-Cell NSCLC
- FDA Approves Netspot Diagnostic Test to Detect Neuroendocrine Tumors
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the cobas EGFR Mutation Test v2, a blood-based companion diagnostic for the cancer drug Tarceva (erlotinib). This is the first FDA-approved, blood-based genetic test that can detect epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations in non-small cell lung cancer patients. Such mutations are present in approximately 10-20 percent of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Netspot, the first kit for the preparation of gallium Ga 68 dotatate injection, a radioactive diagnostic agent for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. This radioactive probe will help locate tumors in adult and pediatric patients with the rare condition, somatostatin receptor positive neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
