Myriad Genetics Company Profile

16:13 EDT 21st September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Myriad Genetics, Inc. is a leader in the discovery of major common human disease genes and their related pathways. TheCompany utilizes analyses of extensive family histories and genetic material, as well as a number of proprietary technologies, to identify inherited gene mutations which increase the risk to individuals of developing these diseases.

The Company has also developed ProNet(TM), a proprietary high-throughput assay to identify protein-protein interactions. The Company believes that the application of these technologies may provide new insights into protein function and cellular organization which may lead to the identification of novel therapeutic targets. The discovery of disease-predisposing genes and their biochemical pathways provides the Company with three significant commercial opportunities: (i) the development and marketing of genetic testing and information services, such as its BRACAnalysis(TM) test and its recently launched CardiaRisk(TM) test, for the identification of individuals who are genetically predisposed to developing a particular disease, (ii) the marketing of subscriptions to the ProNet(TM) database of protein interactions, and (iii) the development of therapeutic products for the treatment and prevention of major diseases associated with these genes and their biochemical pathways.
