Expanded Range of HER1, HER2 and HER3 Assays to Provide Unique Insights and

Facilitate Development of Personalized Cancer Therapies

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, May 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGRM) today announced that the company's HER1 and HER3 Quantitative Protein Assays are now available for clinical development use. Built on Monogram's VeraTag(TM) platform, the HER1 and HER3 assays provide unique, quantitative measurements of protein expression and activity in formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tumor samples. These assays supplement HERmark(TM), Monogram's HER2 and HER2:HER2 Homodimer Breast Cancer Assay, and expands the potential clinical reach of Monogram's VeraTag assays to lung, colorectal and other cancers.

"We are excited to make the HER1 and HER3 assays available for clinical development use," said William Young, president and CEO of Monogram Biosciences. "Our first VeraTag product, HERmark, is already available for use in clinical development programs through our CLIA-approved laboratory and provides quantitative and accurate measurements of the expression of HER2 and HER2:HER2 homodimers. The addition of the HER1 and HER3 assays expands the reach of our VeraTag technology and we look forward to forging collaborations with biopharmaceutical companies to advance the use of our diagnostics and enable the development of new treatment options for those living with cancer."

"Oncologists have long known about the role that HER2 plays in breast cancer and, although far from perfect, have had some tools available to measure it," said Michael Bates, M.D., Monogram vice president of clinical research. "Accurate, quantitative measurements for EGFR (HER1) and HER3 have never
