HRD Test, BRACAnalysis Predict Platinum-based Treatment Benefit in Early-Stage, Advanced TNBC | GenomeWeb

SAN ANTONIO – Using Myriad Genetics' next-generation sequencing based homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) Test, researchers have identified a subset of early-stage triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients who responded to platinum-based therapies, according to data presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.

Additionally, in a separate study presented here, this time in advanced TNBC patients, researchers reported that BRCA mutation status gauged by Myriad's BRACAnalysis test was predictive of carboplatin benefit over docetaxel.
