Myriad

Myriad filed the first PMA module with the FDA, though based on the agency's feedback it's unclear whether it will view myChoice HRD as a companion or complementary test.

The firm brought in total revenues of $177.5 million in the first quarter, compared to $183.5 million in Q1 2016, beating the consensus Wall Street estimate.

The effort aims to identify a suite of markers that could aid in management of type II diabetes and related conditions like retinopathy and kidney damage.

The companies will use Myriad RBM's CustomMAP platform to measure cardiovascular risk biomarkers in patients treated with a Sanofi diabetes drug.

Under the partnership, Myriad will be ION's preferred partner for providing hereditary testing to its member practices. 

A Counsyl study suggests that just half of individuals go through with insurance-mandated pretest genetic counseling, paying out of pocket or canceling the test instead.

Experts said that the EMR is a crucial channel for aggregating clinical insights from multiple sources, but plenty of work is needed to achieve broader adoption.

The study showed an overall benefit regardless of BRCA mutation or HRD status, but some analysts believe the FDA still might require a CDx for niraparib. 

Although Tesaro used Myriad's BRCA and HRD tests to stratify patients, in the NOVA trial all recurrent ovarian cancer patients benefitted from niraparib. 

Experts at CAP16 said most practicing pathologists operate within specialties and rarely cross the divide into other test disciplines, which thwarts optimal patient care.
