Aviir Secures Third $10 Million Financing Tranche To Fund Expanded Sales Of New Heart Risk Test
Date:6/21/2013

Aviir’s MIRISK VP technology consists of a simple blood test that can be ordered by doctors for their patients so they can understand their risk of experiencing a heart attack and be motivated to make therapeutic lifestyle changes. The MIRISK VP technology measures the blood levels of 7 proteins associated with the development of vulnerable plaque. It then uses a complex algorithm to analyze those results and other known risk factors to determine an individual’s probability of experiencing a heart attack within the next five years. Aviir will also be offering cardiologists and primary care physicians of these high-risk patients individualized recommendations for lifestyle changes aimed at mitigating their risk and improving their heart health.

Inverness Advisors, a division of KEMA Partners LLC, acted as exclusive placement agent and Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth acted as legal counsel to Aviir for this financing and transaction.

About the MIRISK VP™ Assessment
The Aviir MIRISK VP Assessment was developed out of basic research at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Researchers identified proteins associated with the biological processes underlying vulnerable plaque development and showed they could be measured in a patient’s blood up to 5 years prior to a plaque rupture and the ensuing heart attack. Aviir’s scientists developed sensitive multiplexed assays to measure proteins in a person’s serum and an algorithm that combines the levels of those proteins with other clinical risk factors into the MIRISK VP Assessment to provide an absolute risk score for CHD risk. That algorithm has been shown in an independent study population to significantly reclassify intermediate risk individuals into their true risk category. By objectively classifying those patients at high risk, the Aviir MIRISK VP Assessment supports physicians to more effectively manage and treat this group – aiding in the reduction and prevention of cardiac ev
