Approval for The FoundationFocus CDxBRCA is a next generation sequencing based in vitro diagnostic device for qualitative detection of BRCA1 and BRCA2 alterations in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) ovarian tumor tissue. The FoundationFocus CDxBRCA assay detects sequence alterations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2) genes. Results of the assay are used as an aid in identifying ovarian cancer patients for whom treatment with Rubraca (rucaparib) is being considered. If a patient is positive for any of the deleterious alterations specified in the BRCA1/2 classification, the patient may be eligible for treatment with Rubraca.
