"While MedTrust is our third spin-off company, it is a first in the informatics area for TGen Accelerators, and marks a beginning in the effort to use the vast knowledge generated by TGen scientists for the commercial benefit of doctors and the general public,'' said MaryAnn Guerra, TGen's Chief Business Officer and President of TGen Accelerators.

Richard Love, a former TGen Chief Operating Officer and former CEO of ILEX Oncology Inc, praised the advent of MedTrust as a boost to the local economy.

"I personally believe that MedTrust can have a bigger positive impact on pati
