The tests may help identify which patients are most likely to respond to Lilly's Alimta and Gemzar cancer drugs, said Switzerland-based Roche. The two companies will work with privately held Response Genetics Inc. on the "biomarker" tests. "This agreement is excellent news for both physicians and patients as the world of truly personalized medicine becomes an ever-growing reality," said Heino von Prondzynski, head of Roche's diagnostic division, in an e-mailed statement.
