Assessments of MammaPrint and EndoPredict tests withdrawn in Sweden

On August 19, 2021, the Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) has announced the withdrawal of two following assessments:

  • MammaPrint test, upon the decision of the Medical Technology Product Council (reason not disclosed);
  • EndoPredict test, as the manufacturer (Myriad Genetics) chose to refrain from participating in the health economic evaluation.

Earlier this year, the assessment was conducted for Oncotype and Prosigna tests as well. These assessments were accomplished, and the reports were released by TLV in July 2021.
