CASTLE ROCK, Colo., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AspenBio Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: APPY), an emerging bio-pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of novel drugs and diagnostics for animals and humans, reported today the company has been invited to present at the annual Roth Capital Partners New York Investor Conference to be held September 5 and 6, 2007. More than 1,200 institutional investors are expected to attend the conference, which will be held at the Westin New York at Times Square.
AspenBio's CEO Richard Donnelly is scheduled to present on Thursday, September 6, at 2:00 P.M. Eastern Time. A simultaneous Webcast will be available at: http://www.wsw.com/webcast/roth13/apnb.ob.
Mr. Donnelly will discuss progress of AspenBio key products, including a specialized assay that detects a marker in the blood associated with appendicitis. According to three studies conducted during the past 33 months, including an ongoing 400 patient study, the company's AppyScore(TM) blood test has been able to identify patients with appendicitis at a very high sensitivity level of 94% to 97%. This compares to significantly lower diagnostic success rates for expensive CT scans, which are generally considered the best diagnostic method currently available for appendicitis. With the AppyScore emergency room triage test and its sister product, AppyScreen(TM), designed for physician offices, AspenBio is targeting a significant need for more economical, accurate and faster assessment of the appendicitis condition.
Roth Capital Partners Stock Conferences are among the largest in the
nation for micro and small-cap companies in the technology,
