About the Afirma Thyroid FNA Analysis
Veracyte's Afirma Thyroid FNA Analysis is designed to improve thyroid nodule diagnosis. This novel solution combines expert cytopathology assessment of thyroid nodule fine needle aspiration (FNA) samples with the company's Afirma Gene Expression Classifier, a genomic test used to clarify inconclusive results as benign or suspicious for cancer, and thus help patients avoid unnecessary surgery if their nodules are actually benign. Two independent clinical studies have shown that the Afirma Gene Expression Classifier can reclassify patients with indeterminate thyroid FNA results as "benign" with the same degree of accuracy as a benign cytopathology diagnosis.

Thyroid cancer is the fastest-growing cancer in the U.S., with an estimated 56,460 new cases expected in 2012, according to the American Cancer Society. An estimated 450,000 thyroid nodule fine needle aspirations (FNAs) – a minimally invasive procedure to extract suspicious cells for examination under a microscope – are performed in the U.S. each year to rule out cancer. Thyroid nodule FNAs are challenging to interpret, however, producing ambiguous results in up to 30 percent of cases. Current guidelines recommend that most of these patients undergo thyroid resection for a definitive diagnosis, given that thyroid cancer is highly treatable. Post-surgical results, however, show that only 20-30 percent of these patients have cancer.

About Veracyte
Veracyte, Inc., based in South San Francisco, Calif., is pioneering the emerging field of molecular cytology, applying molecular biomarkers to cytology samples in order to improve disease diagnosis by clarifying indeterminate results obtained from current methods. The company aims to enable doctors to make more informed treatment decisions that
