About Veracyte, Inc.

Veracyte is focused on discovering, developing and commercializing molecular cytology solutions that enable physicians to make more informed treatment decisions at an early stage in patient care, thus helping patients avoid unnecessary invasive procedures while reducing healthcare costs. Veracyte's first commercial solution, the Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, includes the Gene Expression Classifier (GEC). Over 525,000 fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies are performed each year in the United States on thyroid nodules suspicious for cancer, with up to 30% of FNAs yielding indeterminate results using cytopathology alone, which often leads to surgery that ultimately proves unnecessary. The GEC helps physicians reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries by employing a proprietary 142-gene signature to preoperatively determine whether thyroid nodules previously classified by cytopathology as indeterminate can be reclassified as benign. The clinical utility and cost effectiveness of the GEC have been demonstrated in studies published in peer-reviewed journals and the clinical validity of the GEC has been demonstrated in a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2012. Since the commercial launch of Afirma in January 2011, Veracyte has processed over 50,000 FNA samples for evaluation using Afirma and has performed more than 10,000 GECs to resolve indeterminate cytopathology results. Veracyte has obtained positive coverage decisions for Afirma from Aetna, Humana, Medicare and UnitedHealthcare. Collectively, these payers represent more than 100 million covered lives. Afirma is marketed and sold in the United States through a global co-promotion agreement with Genzyme Corporation, a subsidiary of Sanofi. Veracyte estimates the global market for Afirma to be $800 million. The company intends to expand its molecular cytology franchise to other clinical areas and is in late biomarker discovery for its first product in pulmonology.
