The group now states that men with unfavorable intermediate-risk or high-risk disease can consider testing with Myriad's Prolaris or GenomeDx's Decipher.

The intended use will be in newly diagnosed ovarian cancer patients who are responsive to platinum chemotherapy regardless of biomarker status.

The company filed the application based on the PAOLA-1 data, which showed HRD-positive ovarian cancer patients saw pronounced benefit from the combo.

Myriad filed an sPMA for myChoice CDx despite GSK's confidence that Zejula will be approved in newly diagnosed ovarian cancer regardless of biomarker status.

AstraZeneca and Merck also announced they have filed for approval of Lynparza in patients who have mutations in more than a dozen homologous recombination repair genes.

Among the firms presenting, drugmakers, speciality biotechs, and genetic testing firms provided an update on their precision oncology development programs.
