Choosing the Best Pathway for CDx Development and Commercialization

Drug developers are increasingly incorporating a CDx development (companion diagnostic) strategy into their programs to deliver safer, more effective and appropriate therapies to the right patients. While the end result can be significantly beneficial forCovance Labs CDx Drug Development and Commercialization patients, and development partners, the path from analytical and clinical validation to demonstrating clinical utility and obtaining regulatory approval is often challenging. It requires a comprehensive understanding of clinical trial design, regulatory submission strategies both for the therapy and the diagnostic assay, and also a line of sight for successful commercialization.
