New Study Demonstrates the Ability of myPath® Melanoma to Accurately Classify Lesions Ruled Indeterminate by Standard Pathological Assessment
SALT LAKE CITY, June 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN), a leader in molecular diagnostics and precision medicine, announced today that a new study published in Future Medicine demonstrates the ability of myPath® Melanoma to accurately classify skin lesions ruled indeterminate by standard pathological review.
“This validation study for myPath Melanoma demonstrates the ability of the test to accurately classify lesions which are ruled indeterminate by an expert dermatopathologist,” said Nicole Lambert, president of Myriad International, Oncology and Women’s Health. “Importantly, this accuracy was linked to the gold standard endpoint of real world clinical outcomes demonstrating the accuracy of the myPath Melanoma test result for patients and physicians concerned about this deadly cancer.”
The study evaluated 181 skin lesions of which 125 were ruled indeterminate by at least one of seven blinded dermatopathologists who reviewed the samples. The samples were linked to known real world outcomes with 43 percent of samples representing malignant melanomas. Importantly, myPath Melanoma demonstrated 90.4 percent sensitivity and 95.5 percent specificity in the indeterminate sample cohort and 93.8 percent sensitivity and 96.2 percent specificity when evaluating the entire sample cohort. This data is consistent with multiple other clinical validation studies for myPath Melanoma which have demonstrated the ability of the test to delineate melanoma from benign skin lesions with high diagnostic accuracy.
