Unveiling a New Level of Precision: Discover The Enhanced Prolaris Test Now
Get connected with your Myriad Account Executive to learn how Prolaris is personalizing prostate cancer care.
A prostate cancer patient appeared safe for Active Surveillance at diagnosis based on clinical and pathological features like Gleason and PSA. But after just a year on AS, this patient’s PSA is much higher and he has hip pain.
Why did this seemingly low-risk patient progress so drastically? Because there’s variability and subjectivity within pathology.
Clin-path alone doesn’t provide the whole picture, which is what every man wants, and what you need to make the most informed treatment decisions possible.
Now there’s a much better way of determining the true aggressiveness of cancer. Prolaris is a powerful tool that combines personalized information of tumor behavior with traditional clinician-path features to create the most prognostic information available. The Prolaris test offers unparalleled utility and unbiased insights to help you confidently recommend the best course of treatment for your patients. Which man is safe for AS? You can’t pick him out without Prolaris.
Testing can significantly alter recommended treatment for improved patient outcomes. Watch this video to learn more.
Prolaris is a prognostic, tumor-based biomarker test that looks at cell cycle proliferation (CCP) genes to determine the tumor’s behavior and assess prostate cancer aggressiveness.
While pathology offers a snapshot of how your patient’s cancer looks today, it doesn’t give you the full picture. Prolaris is more like a movie, combining both clin-path and genomics to tell—and show–what the cancer is doing, how it’s behaving, and potential outcomes from that behavior. Results are delivered in a comprehensive, easy-to-understand report, making it a useful tool to share with patients and help personalize patient care.
"The presentation and the layout of the Prolaris report has absolutely changed the way that I speak to my patients in giving biopsy results. One of the first things I do when I walk into the room is pull that up and put it on the screen and we look at it together."
— Ashleigh Renitsky, Oncology PA
When it comes to treating prostate cancer, precision matters. So does quality of life. You want to ensure that your patients aren’t undertreated or overtreated. Prolaris provides the backup you need while giving patients confidence that the treatment you recommend is the best path for them.
Active surveillance, a single form of treatment, or multiple forms of treatment? When making targeted treatment recommendations for your patients, don’t leave anything up to chance. Find out for sure with Prolaris.
What’s more, biomarker tests like Prolaris are supported by NCCN guidelines as a 2A recommendation which are all considered standard of care.

With Prolaris, you’ll save precious time and move your prostate cancer patients toward the right type of treatment from the beginning. Because the Prolaris test is done at the time of diagnosis and requires no additional biopsy, results can be available at your patient’s first cancer consult. You’ll have all the clinical data plus cutting-edge genomic insights so you can make strong, clinically-validated treatment recommendations every time. We can even rush test results to your office if you need to develop a treatment plan immediately. In all cases, Prolaris should be performed before a patient has received any treatment.
"Pathology is important but we need to take another step because pathology is variable. Using Prolaris really helps us make personalized decisions for our patients."
— Dr. Angelo Baccala, Urologist
