Companion Diagnostics- an Effective Tool for Medication Guidance
Jan. 13 2023

A companion diagnostic (CDx) is a medical device, often an in vitro device, which provides information that is essential for the safe and effective use of a corresponding drug or biological product. The test helps a health care professional determine whether a particular therapeutic product’s benefits to patients will outweigh any potential serious side effects or risks.

Companion diagnostics can:

  • identify patients who are most likely to benefitfrom a particular therapeutic product;
  • identify patients likely to be at increased risk forserious side effects as a result of treatment with a particulartherapeutic product; or
  • monitor response to treatment with a particulartherapeutic product for the purpose of adjusting treatment to achieveimproved safety or effectiveness.[1]
