Myriad Finishes Big Year With NICE Endorsement Of EndoPredict Breast Cancer Diagnostic

Executive Summary

The UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has included Myriad Genetics' EndoPredict in its recommendations for guiding adjuvant chemotherapy decisions for certain early breast cancer patients. The recommendation comes just a few weeks after new data showing the long-term prognostic value of the EndoPredict test was presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. The company is also making progress on its Vectra rheumatoid arthritis prognostic system with the publication of a large commercial cohort and several clinical studies on development of the adjusted Vectra score.
