UgenTec will develop artificially intelligent software to support interpretation of MDxHealth's ConfirMDx and SelectMDx molecular prostate cancer tests.

The coverage decision is based on the results of an evidence development study the companies launched last year.

The company expects to see lower growth in products and services due to timing issues in obtaining billable cases from contracted customers.

Given the high yield of miRNA markers they were able to isolate, the researchers believe the approach could be commercialized for routine cancer testing.

The investment bank previously had a Neutral rating for the company, and it lowered the price target on Genomic Health's stock to $25 from $28. 

Genomic Health will test samples from Janssen prostate cancer drug studies to examine whether its test can predict patient outcomes.

Under the terms of the five-year deal, pharmaceutical company Ferrer will sell SelectMDx test directly to urologists in Spain.
