Myriad

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.

The partners will provide testing through a program through which they also plan to establish a database of genetic test results and patient outcomes.

The deal, which included $225 million in upfront payments and up to $185 million in milestones, gives Myriad entry into the neuroscience space.

After reporting FY2016 revenues below market expectations, Myriad discussed plans to increase sales of Prolaris, Vectra DA, EndoPredict, GeneSight, and myChoice HRD.

Despite the historical adoption and reimbursement challenges for PGx testing firms, Myriad said it would try to achieve value-based pricing for Assurex's GeneSight test.

According to Myriad, the NOVA study shows that myChoice HRD can double the number of ovarian cancer patients who will respond to niraparib compared to other tests.
