|Exact Sciences Corporation 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. The target sensitivity rate of its Cologuard test for cancer is equal to or greater than 85 percent at a specificity of 90 percent. Its Cologuard test includes proprietary and patented methods that isolate and analyze the human DNA that are shed into stool every day from the exfoliation of cells that line the colon. When colorectal cancer or pre-cancer is present, a minute portion of the total isolated human DNA will often represent DNA shed from cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions. Once the human DNA in the sample is isolated, sDNA detection looks for specific mutations and other abnormalities in that DNA known to be associated with colorectal cancer. Its test also detects blood in stool, utilizing an antibody-based FIT test. Certain of the Company’s 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.|
