07:14 EDTMYGNNCCN updates guidelines for hereditary colon cancer testing
Myriad Genetics is pleased to note that the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, or NCCN, has revised its medical guidelines to expand Lynch syndrome screening. Lynch syndrome is the most common cause of hereditary colon cancer in adults. Myriad believes the new guidelines will dramatically expand the number of patients eligible for hereditary colon cancer testing, especially among at-risk asymptomatic patients for whom screening has historically been limited based upon prior guidelines and a lack of insurance reimbursement. Some of the key aspects of the new guidelines include: A recommendation that all patients who meet a five percent or greater risk threshold for Lynch syndrome are appropriate for testing; a recommendation against sequential testing for the five Lynch syndrome genes in lieu of panel testing; an acknowledgement that patients with cancer can proceed directly to sequencing tests without a complicated tissue screening algorithm.

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.
