05:17 EDTMYGNMyriad EMPATHY-P clinical study results to be highlighted at annual congress
Myriad Genetics announced that results from the EMPATHY-P clinical study of Prolaris in patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer will be highlighted at the 30th Annual Congress of the European Association of Urology. The EMPATHY-P study evaluated the Prolaris test on 525 patient biopsy samples to determine the aggressiveness of prostate cancer in these newly diagnosed patients from five European countries including: Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. The patients' biopsy samples also were evaluated using standard clinical pathology methods, which were then compared to the Prolaris test results. The EMPATHY-P data showed, overall, that the Prolaris test found 42% of the European men evaluated had a risk profile that was either lower or higher than would be expected using clinical pathology. Interestingly, this finding is consistent with the previously published U.S. Prostate Biopsy Research study, which found 51% of U.S. patients had a risk profile that differed from clinical pathology.
