Tagrisso is approved for the population of patients with metastatic EGFR T790M mutation-positive NSCLC who have progressed while receiving or after EGFR TKI therapy. The FDA also approved the companion diagnostic cobas EGFR Mutation Test v2 to detect EGFR mutations in patients with non-small cell lung cancer, including T790M.
