It is an in vitro device, which provides information that is essential for the safe and effective use of a corresponding drug or biological product. Companion diagnostics (CDx) are the molecular tests or assays intended to assist physicians in making effective treatment decisions based on the patient response to the ongoing treatment with targeted therapeutic medicines. These diagnostic tests ensure the commercialization of safer and efficient targeted therapeutics with minimal or no side effects, while ensuring economic benefits to the patients.
