What is it? Guardant360 CDx is a lab test that detects genetic mutations found in circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) to help doctors identify patients with non-small cell lung cancer who should be treated with TAGRISSO (osimertinib). It is a type of lab test called a companion diagnostic.
How does it work? A patient’s blood sample is sent to a laboratory for testing. The blood is spun to separate the blood cells from the plasma portion. The cfDNA is isolated from a patient’s plasma sample and mixed with chemical substances, called reagents, that find and test the DNA sequences. A medical professional reviews the results and sends a report to the patient’s doctor. The doctor uses this information to help manage the care of patients with the non-small cell lung cancer.
When is it used? Guardant360 CDx is used to test the blood of patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
What will it accomplish? Test results from the Guardant360 CDx are used to help doctors decide if patients with non-small cell lung cancer are eligible for treatment with TAGRISSO® (osimertinib).
When should it not be used? There are no known reasons not to use this test.
