Meridian Funds Comments on Exact Sciences Corp - Jun 20, 2014

Exact Sciences Corp. (EXAS) also had negative returns during the period, which created a drag on overall Fund performance. Exact Sciences is an early stage diagnostic company with a test for early detection of colorectal cancers. Upon receipt of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval, we believe that Exact Sciences’s Cologuard test will help revolutionize colorectal screening and increase overall compliance rates with clinical guidelines. We think that the large market, combined with attractive unit economics, should drive an improvement in shareholder value.

Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:EXK.Germany,
Exact Sciences Corp was incorporated in the State of Delaware on February 10, 1995. The company is a molecular diagnostics company focused on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer. The Company's Cologuard test is designed to detect pre-cancerous lesions or polyps, and each of the four stages of colorectal cancer and is expected to be a powerful, preventive tool. By detecting pre-cancers and cancers early with its test, affected patients can be referred to colonoscopy, during which the polyps or lesions can be removed. In November 2012, Company completed enrollment for its pivotal FDA clinical trial with over 10,000 patients enrolled at 90 enrollment sites in the U.S. and Canada. All patients provided a sample to be tested with Cologuard test, and received a FIT test and a colonoscopy. As of December 31, 2013, Company owned 10 issued patents and 28 pending patent applications in the United States, and 62 issued patents and 26 pending patent applications in foreign jurisdictions. In addition, as part of its 2009 strategic transaction with Genzyme Corporation, it received an exclusive license back from Genzyme Corporation in the fields of colorectal cancer screening and stool-based detection of any disease or condition to the 26 patents issued and 7 pending patent applications in the U.S., and 29 patents issued and 12 pending patent applications in foreign jurisdictions sold to Genzyme. Certain of its activities are subject to regulatory oversight by the FDA under provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and regulations thereunder, including regulations governing the development, marketing, labeling, promotion, manufacturing and export of diagnostic products. sDNA testing faces competition from procedure-based detection technologies such as flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and virtual colonoscopy.
