MyChoice CDx is the most comprehensive tumor test that determines HRD status in women with ovarian cancer. Homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) is present in approximately 48% of ovarian cancer tumors1, most often resulting from a mutation found only within the tumor. Determining HRD status for ovarian cancer patients can help provide information on the magnitude of benefit for PARP inhibitor therapy.
Some causes of HRD are well established while others remain unknown2,3,4
HRD resulting from epigenetic events such as BRCA1 promoter methylation will be missed with a gene sequencing approach.6,7
HR pathway gene mutations other than BRCA1 and BRCA2 are rare, and it is unclear if they are connected to HRD.8,9
There is a distinct genomic effect associated with HRD.3
Evaluating LOH, TAI and LST allows for the assessment of HRD regardless of the specific cause.3
Uses 54,000 SNPs, capturing a more defined look into the genome vs %LOH which uses 3,500 SNPs only looking at a percentage of the genome.
Uses a platform technology that analyzes BRCA1/2, to include sequence variance and large rearrangements, capturing 5% more than other platforms who do not have this technology.5,10
Studies show that by using these methods, MyChoice CDx can identify 34% more tumors with HRD than other testing methods that use %LOH alone5, ensuring you have the most accurate information to make informed treatment decisions.
MyChoice CDx is the only test that is named in guidelines and is the only test that is listed in all the clinical studies that originated PARPi therapy in ovarian cancer patients.

Myriad MyChoice® CDx is a next generation sequencing-based in vitro diagnostic test that assesses the qualitative detection and classification of single nucleotide variants, insertions and deletions, and large rearrangement variants in protein coding regions and intron/exon boundaries of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes and the determination of Genomic Instability Score (GIS) which is an algorithmic measurement of Loss of Heterozygosity (LOH), Telomeric Allelic Imbalance (TAI), and Large-scale State Transitions (LST) using DNA isolated from formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue specimens.
The results of the test are used as an aid in identifying ovarian cancer patients with positive homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) status, who are eligible, because of a positive test result for deleterious or suspected deleterious mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, or may become eligible, because of a positive test result for deleterious or suspected deleterious mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes or a positive Genomic Instability Score, for treatment with the targeted therapy listed in Table 1 in accordance with the approved therapeutic product labeling.

Detection of deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations and/or positive Genomic Instability Score in ovarian cancer patients is also associated with enhanced progression-free survival (PFS) from Zejula® (niraparib) maintenance therapy. This assay is for professional use only and is to be performed only at Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc., a single laboratory site located at 320 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108.
