SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Jan. 20, 2015 – Myriad RBM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN), today announced that it will assist the Institut Pasteur in a public-private research collaboration to fight the global tuberculosis (TB) epidemic. This research project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through a grant to the Institut Pasteur.

The proof-of-concept study will evaluate patients with latent and active TB infections who are affiliated with the South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (SATVI) clinical study sites. The goals of this study are to field-test Myriad RBM’s TruCulture® system as a point-of-care blood collection and immune response monitoring method and to stratify patients with active and latent tuberculosis.

PARIS, France and SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 20, 2014 – Institut Pasteur and Myriad RBM, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Myriad Genetics, Inc., today announced they have published an initial data analysis from the landmark Milieu Interieur Project in the journal Immunity, which provided new insights into the healthy human immune response. The Milieu Interieur project (www.milieuinterieur.fr/en) is a population-based study supported by the French National Ministry of Research and coordinated by the Institut Pasteur, Paris that will characterize the immune phenotypes of 1,000 healthy subjects. The results could lead to the development of novel diagnostics and companion diagnostics.

In the paper titled, Functional Analysis using Standardized Whole Blood Stimulation Systems Defines the Boundaries of a Healthy Immune Response to Complex Stimuli, the authors describe the use of Myriad RBM’s TruCulture® technology, a proprietary blood collection and culturing system, to characterize individual immune responses of 25 healthy people to medically relevant stimuli. Unlike the current laboratory-based methods, TruCulture is deployed at the site of collection and therefore avoids variability from shipping and complex processing as well as the expense of a cell culture facility and staff. The results in the Immunity paper show that TruCulture stimulations are reproducible, with close correspondence in repeated tests from the same subject.

Salt Lake City, December 10, 2012 – Myriad Genetics (NASDAQ: MYGN) announced today that Myriad RBM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Myriad Genetics, has entered into a research collaboration with Sanofi, a global and diversified healthcare leader, and Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) at Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University. Through this collaboration, Myriad RBM will perform protein biomarker research for the Outcome Reduction with Initial Glargine Intervention (ORIGIN) study, the world’s longest and largest randomized clinical trial in pre- and early diabetes. The relationship between the biomarker results and clinical outcomes will be analyzed by investigators at PHRI.

As part of the agreement, Myriad RBM will analyze over 8,000 serum samples collected in the ORIGIN study using its DiscoveryMAP® 250+ quantitative immunoassay panel. Sanofi conceived of the application of Myriad RBM’s technology to ORIGIN with a goal of identifying biomarker profiles that may optimize treatment and improve patient care.
