  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Guardant Health's (NASDAQ:GH) liquid biopsy test Guardant360 CDx as a companion diagnostic (CDx) to select patients for the new use of AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN) and Daiichi Sankyo's (OTCPK:DSKYF) (OTCPK:DSNKY) cancer drug Enhertu.
  • Guardant360 can now be used to identify patients with unresectable or metastatic HER2-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have activating HER2 (ERBB2) mutations and may benefit from treatment with Enhertu.
  • Earlier in the day, British drugmaker AstraZeneca said that the FDA had approved the expanded use of Enhertu for these particular patients.
