Breast Imaging Test Gets FDA Clearance
CHROMAVISION MEDICAL SYSTEMS, INC. ( San Juan Capistrano , CA ) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared for marketing the company's Automated Cellular Imaging System (ACIS®) digital microscope system to perform tests used to help physicians determine an appropriate course of treatment of breast cancer patients.
According to the company, the ACIS is the first imaging device cleared to detect, count and classify the presence of HER2 protein, allowing physicians a more precise and quantitative understanding of the specific traits of individual cancerous tumors. Specifically, this FDA clearance allows ACIS to be used as a complement to the DakoCytomation HercepTest? in the detection and measurement of Her2/ neu (c-erbB-2). This measurement is critical in assessing breast cancer patients for whom HERCEPTIN® (Trastuzumab) treatment is being considered.
