07:11 EDTMYGNMyriad Genetics says SGO recommendations support broader genetic test access
Myriad Genetics noted that the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, or SGO, has issued new clinical practice statements surrounding hereditary cancer testing for patients with ovarian and endometrial cancer. The statements are consistent with the recently revised National Comprehensive Cancer Network, or NCCN, guidelines and support broader access to genetic testing for patients with ovarian and endometrial cancer, the company said. Some of the key aspects of the statements include a recommendation that women diagnosed with epithelial ovarian, tubal and peritoneal cancers should be considered for genetic counseling and testing even in the absence of family history and a recommendation that all women diagnosed with endometrial cancer should undergo systematic clinical screening and/or molecular screening for hereditary colon cancer risk.

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.
