Myriad Genetics Launches New Cancer Diagnostic Tests

Press Release

September 9, 2013

Salt Lake City — Myriad Genetics, Inc. has launched myRisk Hereditary Cancer, a new multi-gene diagnostic test intended to provide increased sensitivity by analyzing 25 genes associated with eight major cancers including: breast, colorectal, ovarian, endometrial, pancreatic, prostate, gastric and melanoma.

"We are excited to launch myRisk Hereditary Cancer, which is a significant scientific advancement in hereditary cancer testing for a range of clinically-actionable cancers," said Mark Capone, president of Myriad Genetics Laboratories. "myRisk Hereditary Cancer will improve the quality of patient care by empowering healthcare providers with knowledge about their patients' risk of hereditary cancer and the appropriate medical management options available based on that risk."

myRisk Hereditary Cancer is being launched in a phased approach beginning with an early-access, clinical-experience program to a limited number of medical and scientific thought leaders followed by an expanded access program later in the year. Myriad will present extensive clinical validity data for myRisk Hereditary Cancer at The Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer (CGA) annual meeting in October and the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in December.

The new myRisk Hereditary Cancer test represents the next generation of hereditary cancer testing and will provide healthcare providers with clear and actionable information to improve patient care, regardless of whether the patient receives a positive or negative test result. Each test report will include a genetic test result, a clinical risk and healthcare management tool based on professional society guidelines.
