MGRM: From their glorious PR today ---
"We're privileged to join the select list of companies in the NVIDIA Inception program ..."

Oh, really??? Well, can ANYBODY "join" that so-called "select list", or did your MGRM company have to pass some kind of SCRUTINY by the NVIDIA firm itself??? (I think your MGRM firm is simply EXPLOITING what NVIDIA has to offer --- like anybody or any entity can do. Because YOUR firm can't do what NVIDIA can do.)

LabCorp to Strengthen Leadership in Infectious Disease and Oncology and Advance Personalized Medicine Strategy

Press Release
Source: Laboratory Corporation of America® Holdings
On Tuesday June 23, 2009, 9:05 am EDT

Companies:Laboratory corp. of america holdingsMonogram biosciences, inc.
BURLINGTON, N.C., SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Laboratory Corporation of America® Holdings (LabCorp®) (NYSE: LH - News) and Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGRM - News) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement and plan of merger under which LabCorp will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Monogram in a cash tender offer for $4.55 per share for an implied total equity value of approximately $106.7 million, or a total enterprise value of approximately $155 million at March 31, 2009, including net indebtedness.

“The transaction announced today is a significant step in the execution of LabCorp’s strategy of leadership in personalized medicine,” said David P. King, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LabCorp. “Monogram Biosciences, Inc. has an excellent clinical reputation, a market leading infectious disease test, a market leading companion diagnostic, an exciting technology platform for oncology and offers LabCorp a substantial growth opportunity. By utilizing LabCorp’s national infrastructure to build on Monogram’s already strong sales, we will advance our leadership in infectious disease and cancer testing, companion diagnostics and personalized medicine. We look forward to providing improved offerings to both our and Monogram’s current customers.”

Monogram Biosciences, Inc. is a leading provider of companion diagnostics - molecular diagnostic products that help guide and target appropriate treatments. Monogram’s proprietary, clinically validated Trofile® assay identifies patients who are eligible for the CCR5 class of HIV drugs and is the widely adopted companion diagnostic for the HIV drug Selzentry®. Monogram’s PhenoSense® and PhenoSense GT ® HIV tests measure individual patient viral drug resistance, thereby enabling physicians to design optimal, individualized treatment plans for each patient. PhenoSense® and PhenoSense GT® are among the most widely used HIV resistance tests in the market today. Monogram’s HIV tests are used routinely by physicians for managing patient therapy and are an integral component of anti-HIV drug development and clinical evaluations for the pharmaceutical industry.

Monogram’s proprietary VeraTag™ technology has been used to develop a sensitive means to assess HER-2 status in tissue samples and has significant potential as a tool to help guide therapy decisions in breast cancer patients. Based on the VeraTag platform, Monogram has multiple tests in development for measuring a variety of protein markers that may have clinical utility to help guide treatment decisions across a broad range of cancer drugs. The potential oncology pipeline associated with this technology is a natural extension of LabCorp’s existing oncology offerings for both clinical trials and commercial clients.

“The transaction underscores the fundamental value of the Monogram business, the talent and expertise of our global team and the quality of our offerings,” said William D. Young, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Monogram Biosciences, Inc. “LabCorp has an exciting vision of the role of molecular diagnostics in personalized medicine, and we are excited to see Monogram’s technology and employees become a part of that vision. We expect the transaction will significantly accelerate the development of products that will improve treatment outcomes for patients with infectious diseases and cancer.”

The acquisition is expected to be approximately $0.12 dilutive to LabCorp’s 2009 earnings per share (EPS), including approximately $0.04 of transaction related costs, and slightly accretive to 2010 EPS.

Under the terms of the agreement and plan of merger, LabCorp’s acquisition subsidiary, Mastiff Acquisition Corp., will commence a tender offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Monogram Biosciences, Inc. for $4.55 per share in cash, without interest. Following the completion of the tender offer, LabCorp expects to merge Mastiff Acquisition Corp. and Monogram resulting in any shares not purchased in the tender offer being converted into the right to receive the same cash price per share as paid in the tender offer. The tender offer and the merger are subject to customary closing conditions set forth in the agreement and plan of merger, including the acquisition in the tender offer of a majority of Monogram’s outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis (excluding out of the money options) and the expiration or early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. The closing of the acquisition is expected in the third quarter of 2009.

The Board of Directors of Monogram Biosciences, Inc. has unanimously determined that the offer and the merger are advisable, fair to, and in the best interests of Monogram and its stockholders, approved the agreement and plan of merger and the other transactions contemplated thereby, including the tender offer, and recommended that the Monogram stockholders accept the offer and tender their shares in the offer when it is made.

The total $155 million estimated enterprise value of the transaction is based on Monogram's approximately 23.5 million fully diluted shares outstanding less net cash and cash equivalents on hand as of March 31, 2009, plus outstanding indebtedness as of that date.

Monogram Presents Three Studies at The 45th ASCO Meeting Describing HERmark's Ability to Select Trastuzumab Responders and Non-Responders
Studies Highlight the Ability of VeraTag™ Assays to Identify Sub-Populations Within “HER2 Positive” Patient Groups

On Tuesday June 2, 2009, 7:30 am EDT

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:MGRM - News) today announced results from three separate studies at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Orlando on the use of HERmark® and the VeraTag™ technology to identify distinct sub-populations of patient with HER-positive disease. Monogram’s unique measures of HER family protein levels resulted in improved correlations with the response to trastuzumab and with the histopathologic characteristics of breast cancer, as compared to conventional tests.

“Even when tumors are defined as ‘HER2-positive’, clinical responses to HER2-target therapies are varied, but it hasn’t been clear what accounts for the observed differences in outcome,” said Michael Bates, M.D. Monogram Vice President of Clinical Research. “Taken together, our studies demonstrate the promise of the VeraTag technology to further differentiate those tumors likely to respond to HER2-targeted therapies and aid in the development of personalized treatment strategies for patients with breast cancer.”

The three studies presented at ASCO are:

Quantitative measure of HER3 total protein (H3T) and association with clinical outcomes in HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer patients treated with trastuzumab (abstract #1021):

Study results showed for the first time that adding a quantitative measure of HER3 protein level results in improved stratification of outcomes in patients treated with trastuzumab. Researchers analyzed 81 formalin-fixed tissue embedded tumor samples and sub-divided the patients into HER2 normal and HER2-overexpressing subgroups. The median time to progression (TTP) in the HER2 normal group was 4.1 months whereas the HER2 overexpression patient group has a TTP of 11.1 months (p=0.0002). In this HER2 overexpressing group, high HER3 expression predicted shorter median TTP (6.1 months) compared with low HER3 expression where the median TTP was 13.1 months (p=0.002). The presentation also described enhancements to the performance of the HER3 total protein measure by increasing the sensitivity of the test down to 1,000 receptors per cell and the dynamic range of the assay by 30 fold.

Identification of a sub-population of metastatic breast cancer patients with very high HER2 expression levels and possible resistance to trastuzumab (abstract #1059):

Recent findings demonstrate that a precise and quantitative measure of HER2 protein levels allows for the identification of multiple sub-populations of HER2 positive patients that exhibit different clinical outcomes on trastuzumab. Using the HERmark breast cancer assay, a quantitative measure of HER2 total protein expression was assessed in primary breast tumor specimens from 99 women treated with trastuzumab for their metastatic disease who were also tested for HER2 by FISH. Using sub-population treatment effect pattern plot (STEPP) analysis, a progression free survival (PFS) rate was generated at 12 months after treatment with trastuzumab. Kaplan Meier analyses demonstrated that patients testing HER2 positive with FISH but with very high HER2 protein levels had a PFS that was no better than patients who tested HER2 negative with FISH and had low HER2 protein levels (median PFS of 4.6 months vs. 4.5 months; Hazard ratio = 0.87; p=0.68). In contrast, patients who were FISH positive with intermediate levels of HER2 total protein expression by HERmark had a significantly longer PFS than patients who were FISH negative with low HER2 total protein levels (median PFS 12.6 months vs. 4.5 months; Hazard ratio = 0.34; p<0.0001). Using a novel assay developed by Monogram, it was shown that a proportion of these patients expressed high levels of the p95 C-terminal fragment of HER2, thought to mediate resistance to trastuzumab.

Correlation of quantitative total HER2 expression and HER2 homodimers with histopathologic characteristics of breast cancer in the FinHer Study (abstract # 11061):

Study results add to the evidence that HERmark is an accurate and precise measure of HER2 status. In this study, correlations between HER2 protein expression and histopathologic characteristics of breast cancer- estrogen and progesterone receptor status, tumor grade and stage, tumor size, lymph node metastasis were examined. Using the HERmark breast cancer assay, it was reported that poorly differentiated cancers and those with a negative ER/PR status had higher H2D/H2T ratios (p=0.013) suggesting a more aggressive phenotype. No significant association was found between H2T or H2D and tumor size, tumor stage or lymph node metastatsis.

“These studies represent the continuing development of our suite of VeraTag-based assays that are designed to provide the oncology community with the most comprehensive and accurate information on an individual patient’s tumor profile,” said William Young, Monogram chief executive officer. “Our HER2 protein-based assays consistently provide more accurate diagnostic information than FISH-based tests, and the addition of HER3 protein-based assays will further enhance the information we can offer physicians. We believe that improved understanding of who will or will not respond to HER2 targeted therapies will contribute to a more rational approach to treatment decisions.”

Monogram Announces 2007 Year-End Financial Results
Thursday February 7, 4:00 pm ET
34% Year to Year Growth drives Fourth Quarter Revenue to Record Level
- Conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET -


SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGRM - News) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2007.
The Company had revenue of $13.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2007, 34% higher than $10.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2006. This growth in revenue was driven primarily by revenue from Trofile(TM), Monogram's proprietary tropism assay. Trofile is the only clinically validated assay for selecting the appropriate HIV patients to be treated with Selzentry(TM), Pfizer's recently FDA-approved CCR5 antagonist. For U.S. patients, Monogram has performed over 3,800 Trofile tests to date, of which over 2,600 tests were performed in the quarter ended December 31, 2007. Reflecting the portion of these tests for which reimbursement has been established, revenue from Trofile in the quarter ended December 31, 2007 was $2.6 million.

"Fourth quarter revenues were at a record level," said Alfred Merriweather, Monogram chief financial officer. "With this strong revenue growth, the leverage provided by our existing laboratory infrastructure and our established sales organization is clearly reflected in significantly improved gross margin, operating loss and cash flow in the fourth quarter."

Gross margin on product revenues was 52% in the quarter ended December 31, 2007, substantially higher than the levels recorded in the first three quarters of 2007. Operating loss was $4.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, an improvement of 39% compared to $7.6 million in the immediately preceding third quarter of 2007 and an improvement of 33% compared to $7.0 million in the prior year's fourth quarter.

The Company had full year revenue of $43.2 million for 2007, compared to revenue of $48.0 million for 2006. Prior year revenues, especially during the first two quarters of 2006, included substantial revenues from the use of the Company's assays in Pfizer's phase III trial of Selzentry(TM), testing for which was largely completed in mid 2006, prior to FDA review and approval of Selzentry in 2007.

The Company had approximately $30.6 million in cash resources (comprised of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments) at December 31, 2007.

Monogram's Trofile Assay and Pfizer's maraviroc

"The first full quarter of Trofile commercialization has seen good progress in testing volumes," said William Young, Monogram chief executive officer. "Over 3,800 tests have been performed to date for U.S. patients and weekly levels are now over 200. Coverage and reimbursement level are established with Medicare and with most state ADAP programs. Fifteen state Medicaid programs and Blue Cross have established coverage for Trofile and we continue our discussions with these groups as well as many other public and private payers to establish the level of reimbursement."

Trofile's role in clinical use of Selzentry was reaffirmed recently with the issuance of treatment guidelines by the Department of Health and Human Services. These guidelines recommend that a co-receptor tropism test should be performed whenever the use of a CCR5 antagonist is being considered and might also be considered for patients who fail therapy while on a CCR5 antagonist. The guidelines acknowledged Trofile's role in the clinical studies that formed the basis for approval of Selzentry, the only approved CCR5 antagonist. "Monogram tests, particularly our Trofile Assay, have been pivotal to CCR5 drug development programs," added Young. "Trofile has been used in all phase II and phase III trials of CCR5 antagonists to date, including those of Pfizer, Schering Plough and Incyte. We are continuing our leadership in tropism testing with our enhanced tropism assay, which sets an even higher standard of sensitivity for CCR5 positive patients and which we expect to be commercially available soon."

Trofile is also now available outside of the U.S. where Pfizer is taking the lead in commercializing Trofile. Arrangements are now in place for processing samples from 12 countries, including Germany, the U.K. and Canada. Monogram expects that access to Trofile will be established in countries representing over 95% of the European market potential by the end of June and in approximately 40 countries worldwide by the end of the year.

HERmark(TM) Breast Cancer Assay

"We have continued to advance our HERmark clinical development programs," commented Young. "Less than 50% of metastatic breast cancer patients selected for treatment with Herceptin by currently available tests actually respond and there is growing concern that currently available IHC and FISH tests may not be adequate and may miss some patients who can benefit from Herceptin. The HERmark Assay provides quantitative and more precise measurements of HER2 expression than current tests and also provides a unique and quantitative measure of HER2's activated form -- the HER2:HER2 homodimer. HERmark has the potential to enhance physicians' ability to accurately select patients for Herceptin therapy and to subdivide them into groups with different clinical outcomes following treatment with the drug. Our separate programs are directed at clinical validation of HERmark as a tool to identify the appropriate patients for Herceptin® in the metastatic and adjuvant settings, respectively."

Data presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in December 2007, from a third cohort of metastatic breast cancer patients, confirmed prior observations that HERmark is capable of identifying subpopulations of Herceptin-treated metastatic breast cancer patients with different clinical outcomes based on the measured levels of HER2 expression and homodimers. More extensive analyses of clinical data from this latest test cohort of metastatic breast cancer patients will be presented at a future scientific forum. Programs to confirm and validate these results in additional cohorts are ongoing.

In parallel with these programs in metastatic breast cancer, HERmark measurements are also being correlated with clinical outcomes in two large cohorts of patients treated with Herceptin in the adjuvant setting, involving as many as 2,600 patients. The first of these studies, in up to 1,600 patient samples, was initiated in late 2007 and is ongoing. A second study, involving a large European study of up to 1,000 patients in the adjuvant setting, has recently been initiated.

In December 2007, Monogram received confirmation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) that the HERmark assays are approved for routine patient testing in Monogram's CLIA certified clinical reference laboratory. "Commercialization of HERmark will be based on the clinical utility established by our ongoing studies in metastatic and adjuvant use of Herceptin," commented Young. "We believe that the unique measurements available from HERmark will represent new and valuable information for physicians, especially when supplemented with specific clinical utility expected to be derived from our ongoing studies."

VeraTag(TM) Oncology Platform

Monogram's first product based on the VeraTag technology platform is the HERmark Breast Cancer Assay, which measures the expression of the HER2 protein and the HER2:HER2 homodimer. Looking beyond this, the Company is continuing its programs to develop assays that measure the HER1 and HER3 proteins as well as dimers involving HER1 and HER3. These additional assays, which are still in development, are intended to broaden the applications for the VeraTag technology to the identification of resistance pathways for Herceptin in breast cancer as well as the identification of signaling pathways relevant to drug response and resistance in other cancer types.

The following non-cash items that were reflected in non-operating income and expense for the periods ended December 31, 2007 and 2006 are excluded from proforma net loss:


-- "Mark-to-market" adjustments to the 3% Senior Secured Convertible Note
and the 0% Convertible Senior Unsecured Debt. An unfavorable adjustment
of $0.4 million and a favorable adjustment of $4.2 million were
recorded in the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2007,
respectively. There were no such adjustments in the prior year,
although a favorable adjustment of $2.2 million was recorded at January
1, 2007 for the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle
at that date. Such adjustments could be significant and unpredictable
in future quarters depending on several factors, including the level of
the Company's common stock price.
-- "Mark-to-market" adjustments in 2006 to the liability established for
the payment on the CVRs issued as part of the merger consideration for
ACLARA. As the outstanding CVR's were settled in the second quarter of
2006, adjustments are not significant for third and fourth quarters of
2006 or for 2007. An unfavorable adjustment of $16.5 million was
recorded in the twelve months ended December 31, 2006.

Stock-based compensation in accordance with SFAS123® is recorded as expense for purposes of both GAAP and our Non-GAAP Proforma results. Such costs were $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, compared to $1.4 million in the prior year's fourth quarter.

Capital Structure

At December 31, 2007, a total of 134 million shares of common stock were outstanding. Stock options and warrants were outstanding on 20.3 million shares and 0.1 million shares of common stock, respectively. The principal amount of Pfizer's $25 million convertible note, issued in May 2006, is convertible into approximately 9.2 million shares of common stock. The $30 million principal amount of our 0% Convertible Senior Unsecured Notes, issued in January 2007, is convertible into approximately 11.9 million shares of common stock.

HERmark(TM) Assay Results in Metastatic Breast Cancer Presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium
Press Release: Friday December 14, 8:00 am ET
HER2 Homodimer and HER2 Total Protein Assays Validated in CLIA Laboratory


SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Monogram Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGRM - News) today presented the results of a study detailing the HERmark(TM) Assay's ability to identify metastatic breast cancer patients who are most likely to respond to Herceptin®. The study results were presented this week at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Also this week, Monogram received confirmation from the College of Pathologists (CAP) that the HERmark assays are approved for routine patient testing in Monogram's CLIA certified clinical reference laboratory.
"The results presented today are an important step along the way to clinical validation of HERmark, the first product based on the VeraTag technology platform," said William Young, Monogram chief executive officer. "In addition to the presentation of important clinical data, I am pleased to report today that the HERmark assays have completed their validation process in Monogram's CLIA-certified clinical reference laboratory. The establishment of solid technical validation data and the ability to perform the assays under high-throughput, well controlled conditions will provide a strong basis for commercialization of HERmark after completion of our ongoing clinical studies."

In the study reported today, Monogram analyzed tissue samples from patients with metastatic breast cancer who were treated with Herceptin, having been selected for such treatment by centralized IHC testing. While current testing methods identified all these patients as being appropriate for Herceptin treatment, Monogram's HERmark Assay was able to distinguish separate sub-populations of patients with different clinical outcomes.

Study details: Those patients with higher HER2 expression levels (i.e. in the upper half of the distribution for the study cohort) experienced a 59% objective response rate while those with lower levels of HER2 expression (i.e. in the lower half of the distribution) had a response rate of only 18%. Additional analyses revealed that patients with higher HER2 expression values had a median time-to-progression of 12.8 months while those in the lower half of the distribution had a median time-to-progression of only 4 months. This result was statistically significant (p = 0.01). Finally, multivariate Cox proportional hazards models identified HER2 expression (HR = 0.16, p < 0.001) and HER2:HER2 dimer levels (HR = 0.32, p < 0.001) as measured by HERmark as being statistically significant predictors of time-to-progression.

"Current testing technologies do not provide an accurate or precise view of HER2 biology in breast cancer, classifying patients as either HER2 'positive' or HER2 'negative'," continued Young. "At best, conventional technologies provide a semi-quantitative analysis. However, only about half of metastatic patients selected by current technologies for Herceptin treatment respond to the drug. Data are now emerging to suggest that patients who could benefit from Herceptin may be missed by currently used assays. Our HERmark studies have provided data which consistently indicate that HERmark can precisely measure HER2 expression and HER2:HER2 dimer levels in clinical FFPE samples, and that those patients with higher levels of expression have significantly better clinical outcomes than those with lower levels. These data strongly suggest that HERmark can identify patients who are likely to respond to Herceptin better than the assays currently in use."

HERmark Assay in Metastatic Breast Cancer

At ASCO in June 2007, Monogram reported results of studies of HERmark in two patient cohorts. In the first of these studies, it was demonstrated that within a population of patients that were stringently selected by FISH testing, the HERmark assay was able to measure a gradient of HER2 expression and HER2 homodimer levels that was significantly correlated with time-to- progression and overall survival on Herceptin. In the second metastatic patient cohort presented at ASCO, selected by IHC in a clinic-based setting, the HERmark assay was also able to demonstrate that patients who were confirmed HER2 positive by IHC on repeat testing showed a gradient of response, and that those with higher levels of HER2 expression and HER2 homodimer levels as measured by HERmark lived longer than those who had lower levels. The results of these two previously reported cohorts, along with the third cohort presented today, provide the basis for Monogram's ongoing work in metastatic breast cancer. There are approximately 60,000 women annually in the U.S. who are newly diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer or who have progressed from earlier stages of disease. These are patients for whom the cancer has spread beyond the breast, and in many cases multiple treatments may have already been provided.

HERmark Assay in the Adjuvant Setting

Monogram has initiated a study with one of the leading oncology clinical trial cooperative groups in the country. In this ongoing study, we are performing HERmark assays on tissue samples from up to 1,600 breast cancer patients treated with Herceptin in the adjuvant setting. The goal of the study is to clinically validate the ability of HERmark to predict clinical outcome in these Herceptin-treated patients. These patients are generally newly diagnosed with breast cancer, have had surgery and are now on a first course of treatment to supplement the surgical procedure. In the U.S., there are approximately 200,000 new cases of breast cancer each year, most of whom are candidates for adjuvant treatment and therefore would be candidates for the HERmark adjuvant breast cancer assay.

About HERmark

HERmark is a proprietary diagnostic that accurately quantifies HER2 expression and dimerization in patients with breast cancer. Preliminary data from three cohorts of Herceptin-treated patients with metastatic breast cancer who were identified as "HER2 positive" by conventional assays suggest that HERmark can identify patients who are likely to respond to Herceptin with greater precision than currently available tests, permitting stratification of patients according to their degree of clinical benefit from the drug. Additional studies of HERmark for breast cancer in both the metastatic and adjuvant settings are in progress.

About VeraTag

VeraTag is a proximity-based assay technology platform that accurately quantifies proteins and functional protein complexes. This platform provides a researcher or clinician a more thorough understanding of protein-protein interactions or signaling pathway activity allowing for disease characterization at the molecular level. VeraTag is designed to run on standard formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) patient samples.

About Monogram

Monogram is advancing individualized medicine by discovering, developing and marketing innovative products to guide and improve treatment of serious infectious diseases and cancer. The Company's products are designed to help doctors optimize treatment regimens for their patients that lead to better outcomes and reduced costs. The Company's technology is also being used by numerous biopharmaceutical companies to develop new and improved anti-viral therapeutics and vaccines as well as targeted cancer therapeutics.
