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.

07:07 EDTMYGNMyriad Genetics, Tufts Health Plan sign agreement to cover Prolaris
Myriad Genetics announced that it has signed a three-year contract with Tufts Health Plan through which the plan will provide coverage of Prolaris for members diagnosed with localized prostate cancer. Prolaris is the first and only biopsy test validated against prostate cancer specific mortality. Tufts Health Plan is a leading health plan in the Northeast with more than one million members. Tufts Health Plan's members will benefit from this agreement, which is designed to drive optimal treatment because men can confidently pursue active surveillance for tumors identified as being less aggressive with Myriad's extensively validated Prolaris combined score. Recent data show that many men realize no benefit from interventional treatment, and many suffer needlessly from the side effects associated with radical prostatectomy and radiation.
