Product Pipeline for Myriad Genetics



Our drug discovery efforts target cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, acute thrombosis, Alzheimer's disease, HIV/AIDS and other viral diseases. In addition, we are exploring the biology around genes that we believe are involved in a variety of disease areas, including atherosclerosis, chronic pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and sleep disorders.

Flurizan -- Alzheimer's Disease --Flurizan is an anti-inflammatory drug that has lowered the levels of beta-amyloid in animal studies.

Flurizan -- Cancer

About Flurizan -- Flurizan is the pure R-enantiomer form of flurbiprofen - an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Flurizan modulates the signal transduction and transcription activation pathways associated with nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB), a principle transcription factor in the expression of many molecules involved in cell growth/death and inflammation. Pre-clinical studies suggest the possibility Flurizan may be used for the treatment and prevention of a large number of cancers.
