Date:12/12/2007

to be able to add CellSearch colorectal cancer testing to our growing menu of cutting-edge diagnostic services available to physicians. The CellSearch cancer tests represent an important advance in how breast and colorectal cancer can be detected and managed over the long term," said CMM Executive Director Dr. Daniel H. Farkas. "It's an important new capability for the region's medical community, and another significant step forward in the growth of the CMM as a unique resource in the rapidly expanding field of molecular medicine."

The CellSearch System, which is distributed by Veridex, a Johnson & Johnson company, was cleared by the FDA in January 2004 as an in vitro diagnostic test to aid in the identifying and counting of CTCs in a blood sample. Pricing for the test is $495 and CMM is working with area insurance providers regarding coverage. Physicians interested in obtaining more information may contact CMM directly at 616-391-4330 or visit http://www.cmmdx.org/physicians.
