Quest Diagnostics Declares Quarterly Dividend Payable on July 22, 2015

Quest Diagnostics announced it will pay a quarterly dividend on its common stock of $0.38 per share on July 22, 2015 to shareholders of record on July 8, 2015.

Quest Diagnostics Launches QNatal Advanced

Quest Diagnostics launched QNatal Advanced, a noninvasive prenatal screening service for detecting chromosomal abnormalities in high-risk pregnancies. QNatal Advanced analyzes cell-free fetal DNA in circulating maternal blood to screen for common and rare chromosomal abnormalities, including those associated with trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) and monosomy X (Turner syndrome), as well as fetal sex aneuploidies and select copy number variants. The screening test analyzes more chromosomal regions than most other noninvasive prenatal tests, and can be used as early as 10 weeks into gestation. With results of a QNatal Advanced screen, a woman and her physician may be better positioned to assess the appropriateness of invasive diagnostic testing, such as amniocentesis, which carries a slight risk of miscarriage, to confirm a finding.

Quest Diagnostics Announces LeukoVantage, Advancing Precision Medicine for Hematologic Malignancies

Quest Diagnostics announced LeukoVantage, an evidence-based genomic test service that aids in the diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring and selection of treatment for myeloid neoplasms, a group of hematologic malignancies that includes acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the most common form of adult acute leukemia, as well as myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). For MDS, LeukoVantage may detect certain molecular markers to help identify early stages of the disease, complementing conventional diagnostic techniques. MDS is typically diagnosed through a series of tests that include complete blood count (CBC), morphology, and cytogenetic (chromosomal) analysis. For MPN, LeukoVantage may identify molecular markers that can aid the selection of certain targeted therapies, such as JAK2 inhibitors, and establishing a prognosis.
