Gene By Gene Rejects BRCA1/2 Patent Infringement Claims by Myriad and Joins Ambry Genetics to Sue Myriad for Violating Federal Antitrust Laws
Date:8/15/2013

HOUSTON, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene By Gene, Ltd. announced that it is teaming with Ambry Genetics to defend against Myriad Genetics' patent infringement lawsuits against both companies in connection with the BRCA1/2 tests being offered by Gene By Gene and Ambry Genetics.  Both companies are also countersuing Myriad for violations of the Federal Antitrust Act.

On June 13, 2013, immediately following the United States Supreme Court's 9-0 landmark decision against Myriad in "Association For Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics," Gene By Gene announced its intention to offer fast, accurate and affordable BRCA1/2 testing to the public.

"The Supreme Court was very clear that gene sequences, even when isolated, cannot be patented," said Gene By Gene President Bennett Greenspan. "In light of this ruling we are pleased that we can now offer Americans the benefit of this more affordable test that we have already successfully offered to overseas clients."

Gene By Gene has been providing BRCA1/2 tests to individuals outside the U.S. since 2012. Those tests are processed at the company's Genomic Research Center in Houston, a CLIA-registered lab.  The company has processed various genetic tests – including BRCA1/2 -- for close to a million individuals and organizations globally.

Yesterday Gene By Gene also filed a declaration with the court outlining the details of its BRCA1/2 test, which it will continue to offer to the public.

Greenspan added, "We look forward to a swift resolution of this litigation to level the playing field for test providers, and to enable greater numbers of people to benefit from the genomics revolution."
