FDA Expands Clearance for Agendia's MammaPrint

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agendia today said that the US Food and Drug Administration has cleared its MammaPrint breast cancer recurrence test for all ages.

Amsterdam-based Agendia said that it is the fourth FDA clearance for MammaPrint over the past three years. It also noted that MammaPrint has been approved in Europe for all ages since 2004.

"This FDA clearance, along with our recently obtained CMS coverage for all stage I and II breast cancer patients, including patients with up to three positive lymph nodes, will facilitate our discussions with healthcare providers about patients' eligibility criteria for MammaPrint," Agendia CEO Bernhard Sixt said in a statement.
