Companion diagnostics are in vitro diagnostic tests providing information for the safe and effective use of corresponding drugs. The use of those tests helps physicians evaluate the efficacy and safety of a specific pharmaceutical in a group or sub-group of patients. Certain drugs have been known to be effective only in sub-segments of the patient population. The use of companion diagnostics allows for therapies to be administered only to people who are most likely to benefit from a particular treatment, aiding therapeutic efficiency and cost effectiveness.
