“This FDA clearance, along with our recently obtained CMS coverage for all stage I and II breast cancer patients, including patients with up to three positive lymph nodes, will facilitate our discussions with health-care providers about patients’ eligibility criteria for MammaPrint,” said Dr. Bernhard Sixt, Agendia’s chief executive officer.
