07:06 EDTMYGNMyriad Genetics published details of its myVision program
Myriad Genetics announced that it has published details of its myVision Myriad Variant Classification Program in the journal Clinical Genetics. myVision is the most advanced variant classification program available to determine whether a patient's genetic variant is benign or deleterious. myVision employs a number of robust scientific methods and is backed by Myriad's 20 years of clinical research and testing in more than one million patients. "Patients who receive a genetic test that identifies a variant of uncertain significance, or VUS, do not know if their mutation is benign or deleterious and associated with hereditary cancer risk. This lack of clarity is emotionally difficult and confusing for patients who are making medical decisions and may translate into substantial downstream healthcare costs," said the company.

12:12 EDTMYGNMyriad Genetics receives FDA approval of BRACAnalysis CDx
Myriad Genetics (MYGN) announced that it has received approval from the U.S. FDA for BRACAnalysis CDx to be used as the only companion diagnostic in conjunction with AstraZeneca's (AZN) drug Lynparza. Lynparza is the first poly ADP-ribose polymerase inhibitor for patients with germline mutations in BRCA1/2 advanced ovarian cancer who have had three or more lines of chemotherapy. BRACAnalysis CDx is Myriad's first FDA-approved companion diagnostic for use with a novel PARP inhibitor. BRACAnalysis CDx is a highly accurate molecular companion diagnostic test that identifies deleterious or suspected deleterious mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, using DNA obtained from a blood sample. BRACAnalysis CDx was proven in clinical studies to effectively identify patients with BRCA mutations who would be candidates for Lynparza. The approval of BRACAnalysis CDx demonstrates Myriad's commitment to developing companion diagnostics and is the culmination of an intensive, multiyear scientific collaboration with AstraZeneca to advance personalized medicine for women with ovarian cancer.
