The US DOJ alleged that the company conspired to "artificially delay" ordering its MammaPrint test in order to circumvent Medicare's 14-day rule.

A Myriad Genetics-funded team found that an 86-SNV polygenic score could modify breast cancer risk in women with pathogenic mutations in cancer risk genes.

The company recently presented results from its Aurora assay for multi-cancer screening and plans to launch a $100 test for the US and Chinese markets.

Researchers identified secondary or incidental findings in just over 3 percent of the nearly 22,000 EMERGE III participants, who were profiled with a 109-gene panel.

At the American Society of Clinical Oncology's virtual meeting, investigators presented two new studies of BluePrint classification patterns.

The decision comes after Myriad requested expanded coverage for women with breast cancer seeking information about extending endocrine therapy.

An analysis of pediatric cancer survivors suggests subsequent neoplasm risk can increase after certain genotoxic treatments in those with DNA repair gene changes.

The MAGENTA and ProGen trials showed that video-based and online education can increase the number of patients getting tested compared to traditional approaches.  

The firm presented a poster at ASCO suggesting that its StemPrintER platform outperforms Exact Science's Oncotype Dx for predicting breast cancer recurrence.
