Roche: Epstein-Barr test approved in US
(CercleFinance.com) - Roche announced on Wednesday that the US FDA has approved its cobas EBV molecular biology test for the detection of Epstein-Barr infectious mononucleosis.
The Swiss biopharmaceutical group said that the identification of the Epstein-Barr virus is important because it helps prevent the progression of serious diseases, such as cancer in transplant patients.
Roche previously obtained breakthrough device status for the test from the FDA, a decision that accelerated its approval by the US health authority.
