Bringing a companion diagnostic (CDx) to market is a complex process involving several stakeholders including the pharmaceutical industry, regulatory bodies, health financing entities (payers) and healthcare providers. In order to capitalize on synergies between public health policy makers and CDx developers, both groups should better understand the motivations of the other. Policy makers interested in maximizing the public health impact of CDxs through increased development, adoption and use should take into account financial and investment decisions affecting CDx development.
This SSP presents a synthesis of existing literature to educate/inform public health policy makers about the motivations of developers responsible for CDx generation. This information can assist public health decision makers responsible for guidelines and public finance to make such decisions with an appreciation of the dynamic environment in which developers of companion diagnostics operate in the private sector.
