Predictive IHC assay
VENTANA PD-L1 predictive assays identify patients who are most likely to respond to specific therapies, generating results you can trust so that you can make timely diagnostic decisions and therapeutic choices. We support your expertise by providing you with the tools that you need to successfully implement these assays into your laboratory and interpret them proficiently.
VENTANA PD-L1 (SP263) Assay guides immunotherapy decisions by identifying urothelial carcinoma (UC) patients most likely to benefit from IMFINZI™ (durvalumab). FDA approved.
The VENTANA PD-L1 (SP263) Assay* is the clinical trial enrollment assay for IMFINZITM (durvalumab) and the only PD-L1 assay validated to assess UC patient treatment benefit from this PD-L1 inhibitor. Using a validated assay to determine PD-L1 status for immunotherapies is important. VENTANA PD-L1 (SP263) Assay equips pathologists by:
* In the US only available on the BenchMark ULTRA instrument
VENTANA PD-L1 (SP263) Assay is a qualitative immunohistochemical assay using rabbit monoclonal anti-PD-L1 clone SP263 intended for use in the assessment of the PD-L1 protein in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) urothelial carcinoma tissue stained with OptiView DAB IHC Detection Kit on a VENTANA BenchMark ULTRA instrument.
PD-L1 status is determined by the percentage of tumour cells with any membrane staining above background or by the percentage of tumour-associated immune cells with staining (IC+) at any intensity above background. The percent of tumour area occupied by any tumour-associated immune cells (Immune Cells Present, ICP) is used to determine IC+, which is the percent area of ICP exhibiting PD-L1 positive immune cell staining. PD-L1 status is considered High if any of the following are met:
PD-L1 High status as determined by VENTANA PD-L1 (SP263) Assay was associated with increased objective response rate (ORR) in a single arm study of IMFINZI™ (durvalumab).
This antibody is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.
