Myriad also showcased data on myPlan
Lung Cancerat the International Association for the Study of Lung CancerAnnual Meeting showing that the test accurately predicted a lung cancer patient's risk of dying from the disease. Patients with a high-risk myPlan Lung Cancer score had approximately twice the number of lung-cancer deaths over a five year period compared to patients with a low-risk score.
Study results on the Myriad myPath™ Melanoma test were presented at the
American Society of Dermatopathology'sAnnual Meeting demonstrating that it was highly effective in differentiating melanoma from benign nevi. myPath Melanoma test achieved an 89 percent sensitivity and 93 percent specificity across 464 skin biopsy lesions, which included 254 melanomas across all major subtypes.
