Myriad Genetics Launches Lung Cancer Screening Test

Press Release

October 30, 2013

Salt Lake City — Myriad Genetics, Inc. has launched a new prognostic test, Myriad myPlan Lung Cancer, for patients diagnosed with early-stage lung adenocarcinoma. myPlan Lung Cancer is an RNA expression panel of 31 cell-cycle-progression genes, in combination with tumor staging information, to determine a patient's risk of dying from lung cancer within five years. The myPlan Lung Cancer test has been extensively studied in more than 1,500 patients. In these studies, myPlan Lung Cancer was shown to be significantly predictive of five-year lung cancer mortality and more predictive than tumor staging information alone.

"Post-surgical treatment decisions for early-stage lung cancer patients are largely guided by tumor staging. However, the prognostic power of tumor stage alone is limited and there remain unacceptably high mortality rates for this patient population," said Mark C. Capone, president of Myriad Genetics Laboratories.
