RegSci Forum “An Inflection Point for High-Quality Diagnostic Tests in Oncology”

September 12, 2023 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Dr. Brian Alexander, CEO Foundation Medicine

About the talk:

The evolution of precision cancer care—the practice of matching the right patient to the right treatment at the right time—has advanced care significantly in recent years. We have made tremendous progress in fighting cancer using insights from our increased understanding of the genomic mutations underlying the more than 100 different types of cancer. But precision cancer care can only be as good as the quality of the tests used to guide diagnosis and treatment. Today, we are at an inflection point where we have an opportunity to prioritize the development and availability of high-quality tests so patients and physicians can receive accurate and reliable information allowing them to confidently inform a diagnosis, disease progression and treatment options. Regulatory reforms that are fundamentally flawed and disincentivize the development of high-quality tests are not in the best interest of patients.
