Agendia is a leading molecular diagnostics company that develops and markets genomic-based products that improve the quality of life for cancer patients and simplifies complex treatment decisions for their physicians. Agendia’s Symphony(TM) suite of breast cancer products is based on the analysis of hundreds of genes in a patient’s tumor and provides unprecedented biological insight to address complex treatment decisions. Symphony includes MammaPrint, the first and only FDA-cleared IVDMIA breast cancer recurrence assay, as well as BluePrint, a molecular subtyping assay, TargetPrint®, an ER/PR/HER2 gene expression assay, and TheraPrint®, a therapy selection assay. Together, these tests help physicians determine a patient’s individual risk for metastasis, which patients will benefit from chemo, hormonal or combination therapy, and which patients do not require these treatments and can instead be treated with other less arduous and less costly methods.
