AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aspira Women’s Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWH), a bioanalytical-based women’s health company, today announced they will incorporate management recommendations from NCCN Guidelines® into our Aspira GenetiX Clinical reports. Aspira GenetiX is our personalized hereditary cancer genetic risk testing service that offers panels specifically curated to detect pathogenic variants in genes known to confer a significant increase in the risk for gynecologic cancer including endometrial, ovarian, and cervical cancers.

In addition, referencing NCCN Guidelines content into our clinical report represents the quality of our offerings as NCCN is considered to be the preeminent voice in the field of oncology and has significant influence over clinical decision-making as well as payer coverage decisions.
