Date:9/5/2007

Healthcare providers receive guidance for coding of claims to Medicare for

Trofile(TM) as tropism test for Pfizer's Selzentry(TM)

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGRM) today announced that the National Heritage Insurance Company (NHIC), the contractor that administers Medicare programs in California, has established coding procedures for the company's Trofile Assay. For patients throughout the U.S., Medicare claims for Trofile are submitted to NHIC, which is the local Medicare part B Contractor in California, where Trofile tests are performed.

The coding guidance for healthcare providers is reported in the Medicare Coverage Database in an article entitled "Trofile Test for Maraviroc Therapy". The article is available on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/mcd/viewarticle.asp?article_id=45784&article_version =2& show=all (Due to length of URL, please cut and paste into browser). The article references the need for tropism testing as indicated in the FDA labeling for maraviroc, and acknowledges that Monogram's Trofile Assay was the test for tropism on which the FDA clinical trials of Selzentry (maraviroc) were based.

"Recognition by the CMS Contractor of the need to reimburse for Trofile, as part of the use of Selzentry, is a strong validation of the clinical utility of our Trofile Assay," said William D. Young, Monogram CEO. "That it should happen so quickly after FDA approval of Selzentry is very encouraging."
