“We're moving toward an era of truly personalized medicine where research is uncovering the genetic basis for disease as well as mutations and biomarkers that can be targeted with drug and biologic therapies.

But we don't have a similar accelerated pathway in most jurisdictions for the companion diagnostic.”
