  • Roche (RHHBY) has a broad portfolio of diagnostic tests with more than a hundred high-quality Elecsys assays for immune testing along with a new generation of fully automated cobas analyzers for improved medical decision making, scheduling and efficiency.

    The company is striving hard to further strengthen its Diagnostics division. Roche recently received positive news when Health Canada approved its cobas 800 HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Test for use as a first-line primary screening test for cervical cancer in women aged 25 years and above.

    Additionally, Roche launched its fully automated CINtecPLUS test in Canada, which enables improved detection and early intervention of pre-cancerous cervical disease. The launch of the cytology test in Canada will help identify women with high-grade pre-cancerous cervical lesions who need immediate colposcopy.

    Roche's cobas 4800 HPV Test will provide both pooled high-risk HPV DNA results and individual detection of HPV 16 and HPV 18, which cause approximately 70% of cervical cancer. The approval was based on encouraging results from the ATHENA trial wherein it was observed that one in four women who are HPV 16 positive will have cervical disease within three years and that nearly one in seven women with normal Pap cytology who were HPV 16 positive suffered from high-grade cervical disease that was missed by cytology.

    We remind investors that in Apr 2014, the FDA also approved Roche's cobas HPV Test for use as a first-line primary screening test for cervical cancer in women aged 25 years and above.

    We are impressed by Roche’s efforts to strengthen its Diagnostic Division. The Diagnostics Division generated sales of $10.5 billion in 2013, up 4% from a year ago. The approval of new tests will further boost the sales of this division.

    Roche lost out on ILMN.

  • Health Canada Approves Roche's HPV Test for First-Line Primary Screening of Cervical Cancer and Roche Launches New Cytology Test to Provide the Most Comprehensive Portfolio for Cervical Cancer ScreeningLAVAL, QC, June 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Roche announced that Health Canada approved the cobas® 4800 HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Test for use as a first-line primary screening test for cervical cancer in women 25 and older. Roche has also launched the fully automated CINtec® PLUS test to improve the detection and early intervention of pre-cancerous cervical disease. The Health Canada approved CINtec® PLUS cytology test helps identify women with high-grade pre-cancerous cervical lesions who need immediate colposcopy. Roche's portfolio of cervical cancer screening products provides the most comprehensive strategies for cervical cancer prevention and treatment.

    "We are very pleased that Health Canada has approved the cobas® 4800 HPV test for use as a first-line primary screening test to identify women at increased risk for the development of cervical cancer", said Ian Parfrement, President & General Manager, Roche Diagnostics Canada. "We will partner with healthcare professionals and authorities to redefine and adapt current practice guidelines to encourage clinicians to incorporate these new tests in their patient protocols. If caught early, cervical cancer is one of the most preventable and curable cancers with a survival rate of more than 90% and with our Cervical Cancer Screening solution we will certainly improve patient care and people's health."

    "Canada has always been on the forefront of innovative strategies in cervical cancer prevention," said Dr. Eduardo Franco, James McGill Professor and Chair, Department of Oncology, Director, Division of Cancer Epidemiology, McGill University. "Once again, Canadian women will benefit from a major technological innovation, with the recent approval by Health Canada of the first molecular test with genotyping 16 & 18 for general cervical cancer screening. The new indication will give women more safety while reducing their dependence on frequent screening visits."

    The cobas® 4800 HPV Test provides both pooled high-risk HPV DNA results and individual detection of HPV 16 and HPV 18, the two types responsible for about 70 percent of cervical cancer. Health Canada's decision to approve the expanded use for the cobas® 4800 HPV Test was based on results from the landmark ATHENA trial, which enrolled more than 47,000 women. The study demonstrated that one in four women who are HPV 16 positive will have cervical disease within three years and that nearly 1 in 7 women with normal Pap cytology who were HPV 16 positive actually had high-grade cervical disease that was missed by cytology.

    In addition, results from the ATHENA trial included a comparison of a cobas® 4800 HPV Test screening strategy to alternative strategies using Pap cytology and HPV testing. The comparison showed that a strategy leveraging the ability of the cobas® 4800 HPV Test to identify women testing positive for HPV 16 or 18, and using cervical cytology as a triage, follow-up test, would allow clinicians to detect more disease without referring a significant number of women to unnecessary follow-up.

  • Roche's (RHHBY) Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. has entered into a collaboration agreement with MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca (AZN).

    Both the companies are jointly developing a PD-L1 (SP263) immunohistochemistry assay to enroll patients in clinical trials for MedImmune's MEDI4736 anti-PD-L1 therapy for non-small cell lung carcinoma. The deal includes the MEDI4736 ATLANTIC trial that will enroll only patients who express PD-L1 as determined by the VENTANA assay.

    The treatment is based on cancer immunotherapy which is gaining a lot of interest in the recent times as pharmaceuticals majors focus their R&D efforts on the same.

    Roche specializes in cancer drugs. We are encouraged by the recent bout of news on the pipeline candidates. Last week, Roche announced positive results from a phase I study on oncology candidate, anti-PDL1 (MPDL3280A).

    The results from the study showed that immunotherapy candidate MPDL3280A was effective in shrinking tumors by 43% in treatment experienced patients suffering from metastatic urothelial bladder cancer. These patients had tumors that were characterized as PD-L1 positive by a test being developed by Roche. The candidate was granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (:FDA).

    On the other hand, Roche recently announced encouraging results from a phase II study, JO25567. The study evaluated the safety and efficacy of Avastin in combination with Tarceva as the first line treatment for patients suffering from advanced non-small cell lung cancer (:NSCLC) characterized by activating mutations of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR Mut+) compared to Tarceva alone.

    The study was conducted in Japan. The results from the study showed that Avastin in combination with Tarceva helped patients live significantly longer without their disease getting worse compared to those given Tarceva alone. Consequently, the study met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). Both the drugs are already approved for the treatment of lung cancer.
