Addressing a Key Unmet Medical Need There is only one validated predictive test available today: Sept 2013 Lancet Oncology

"So, is the BCI test ready
for prime time

decision making for women who
have undergone 5 years of
hormonal therapy?
The answer is yes."
"The BCI test has level 1B evidence for this indication." Second Generation Molecular Diagnostic Test With Two Components BCI Prognostic
BCI Predictive
Assesses Individual Risk of Predicts Likelihood of Benefit Recurrence from 0-10 years From Hormonal Therapy Initial focus is on the area of greatest unmet need:
Benefit from extended Late recurrence risk (5-10 yrs) endocrine therapy (5-10 yrs) Clinically Actionable Information that can impact her treatment plan Low Risk/Low Likelihood of Benefit
Consider completion of endocrine Rx at 5 years
For patients already on extended endocrine Rx, consider stopping
High Risk/High Likelihood of Benefit
Consider extending endocrine Rx beyond year 5
For patients beyond year 5 who are off treatment, consider restarting
endocrine Rx
Emphasize importance of compliance and adherence
High Risk/Low Likelihood of Benefit
Consider additional and other therapeutic approaches for risk
reduction and more frequent monitoring
Low Risk/High Likelihood of Benefit
Consider continuation of endocrine Rx beyond year 5 if patient is
tolerating well and has no concerning comorbidities

BCI Pivotal Studies The BCI clinical study program has demonstrated:  Risk Assessment for Early and
• BCI significantly stratified patients Late Recurrence: Randomized
by risk of early and late recurrence controlled trial (Stockholm) and Multi- • 60% of patients have a low risk institutional cohorts (<3%) of late recurrence (Zhang et al. Clin Cancer Res. 2013)  Improved Performance Compared
• BCI significantly stratified patients to Oncotype DX: Head-to-head
by risk of early and late recurrence study in a randomized controlled trial • Oncotype DX could not predict risk of late recurrence (Sgroi et al. Lancet Oncol. 2013)  Prediction of Patient Benefit from
• Patients categorized as High BCI Extended Endocrine Therapy:
(H/I) had a significant benefit from Randomized controlled trial cohort extended therapy (67% reduction in risk of recurrence) (Sgroi et al. J Nat'l Cancer Inst. 2013) • Patients categorized as Low BCI (H/I) did not benefit Clinical impact of BCI in extended endocrine therapy decision-making  Prospective clinical decision-impact study led by Yale University (N=100 pts)  Physicians and Patients completed questionnaires pre- and post-BCI Physician Recommendations for Extended Endocrine Therapy
 Individual extended endocrine therapy treatment decisions were changed in approximately 26% of cases  Study demonstrated a net decrease in patients on extended endocrine therapy  Patient anxiety was reduced in 50% of cases Sanft T, et al. Breast Cancer Res Treat. 2015 Actual Data from Clinical Utilization of BCI Confirms Broad Use and large market opportunity T= 0 @ diagnosis Prevalence between years 3-8 years 515k* patients – Each year 167k ER+ early stage breast cancer patients are newly – In addition, approximately 515k patients are already deep in the journey between years 3-8; about 70% of these still persist on endocrine treatments at 5 yrs There are two types of physicians; those that want to use strictly at the anniversary, and others who will also use the test among the prevalent pool of patients The effective market size for BCI ($800M) is a value between these two extremes * Epidemiological estimates are for U.S. only in 2015 Source: Kantar Cancer !Mpact database (2014) BCI is Uniquely Positioned to Inform Extended Endocrine Decision, Similar to Oncotype DX for Chemo Prognostic

Revenue Growth Drivers • Extension of BCI indications • Commercialization ex US • Cell free DNA assays  Commercial stage molecular diagnostics company focused on cancer  We have two high-value proprietary and uniquely differentiated tests on the market, focused on high unmet medical need areas  Medicare coverage of both tests at prices that recognize their value, subject to specific coverage criteria (LCD)  Entering a rapid-growth phase with increasingly diversified growth drivers Medicare Clinical Coverage Criteria – Breast Cancer Index (BCI)
Coverage of the Breast Cancer Index (BCI) is limited to patients that meet the
following criteria:
 Post-menopausal female with non-relapsed, ER+ breast cancer, and
 Was lymph node negative (LN-), and Is completing five (5) years of tamoxifen
 Patient must be eligible for consideration of extended endocrine therapy based on published clinical trial data or practice guidelines, and  Physician or patient is concerned about continuing anti-hormonal therapy because of documented meaningful toxicity or possible significant patient-specific side effects, and  The test results will be discussed with the patient (including the limitations of the testing method, the risks and benefits of either continuing or stopping the therapy based on the test, and current cancer management guidelines). Medicare Clinical Coverage Criteria – CancerTYPE ID CancerTYPE ID is covered as a once-in-a-life time benefit. The assay may be used to resolve an unknown primary tumor or to resolve a pathological diagnosis with 2 or more differential diagnoses. In the unlikely event of a second UPC, denied claims can be appealed through standard Medicare protocol. Use of the CancerTYPE ID assay is limited to:  Tumors for which a single specific site of origin has not been established or resolved by the combination of clinicopathologic studies and consultation with pathologists, radiologists and oncologists.  Specimens, such as cytology cell blocks, where limited quantity of the specimen precludes standard pathologic workups
