SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:MYGN) today announced clinical data from three studies on Prolaris in prostate cancer patients will be featured at the 2014 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting, being held May 16–21, 2014, in Orlando, Fla. Prolaris is a novel molecular diagnostic test that accurately predicts cancer-specific death and metastases in men with prostate cancer and is a stronger indicator of clinical outcomes than Gleason score or PSA. In clinical practice, Prolaris is the only test to demonstrate that physicians changed their treatment plans in 65 percent of cases after receiving the test report – 40 percent of patients had a reduction in therapeutic burden, while 25 percent had an increase in therapeutic burden.
