Press Release Biocartis Group NV: Biocartis Partners with Lilly to Explore Biomarker Testing for NSCLC Patients using the Idylla™ Platform

PRESS RELEASE: 10 August 2023, 07:00 CEST

Biocartis Partners with Lilly to Explore Biomarker Testing for NSCLC Patients using the Idylla PlatformMechelen, Belgium, 2023 - Biocartis Group NV (the ‘Company’ or ‘Biocartis’), a global innovative molecular diagnostics company (Euronext Brussels: BCART) today announced that they have entered into a new post-commercial collaboration program with Lilly, a global pharmaceutical company. This program will explore the advantages of adding the Biocartis IdyllaTM Platform to a molecular diagnostics workflow in global clinical labs via a study in hospitals across Spain. The focus will be to understand how the Idylla™ Platform can contribute to a more expeditious and comprehensive approach to identify targetable alterations when compared to various current clinical workflows for NSCLC patients.

Roger Moody, Chief Executive Officer of Biocartis, commented: “I am pleased that Lilly shares our commitment to address the need for faster identification of eligible patients for targeted therapy.” He also added: “Despite guidelines and reimbursement, patients, especially those in community hospital settings, continue to receive treatment based on incomplete or untimely biomarker results. Our collaboration with Lilly supports our ambition to deliver results in time for all patients, including those being treated in community-based centers.”

The intention of the Lilly-sponsored study in Spain is that the results will guide and improve US community-based diagnostic workflows by the introduction of the Idylla platform. The outcome data is expected to be presented in the fall of 2024.

Anthony Sireci, MD, MSC, Senior Vice President, Clinical Biomarker and Diagnostics, Loxo Oncology at Lilly, added: “There is a need to improve the rates of molecular profiling of lung cancer patients before first line treatment decisions are made. One of the barriers to this are the long turnaround times associated with send out testing. This study aims to test the hypothesis that an in-house, rapid turnaround time and easy to use assay will deliver actionable results to patients and increase their likelihood of receiving biomarker-informed therapies.”
