Corgenix Receives Third U.S. Patent on AtherOx(R) Technology
Date:9/25/2008

U.S. PATENT OFFICE GRANTS PATENT # 7,422,864 FOR TECHNOLOGY USED IN CORGENIX NEXT GENERATION PREDICTIVE CARDIOVASCULAR DIAGNOSTIC PRODUCT LINE

DENVER, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CONX), a worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, has received notification of U.S. Patent Office approval for technology to which Corgenix holds exclusive worldwide licensing rights outside of Japan. The technology is incorporated in the Company's AtherOx(R) product group, a next-generation technology to identify individuals at risk for developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

U.S. Patent # 7,422,864 was issued September 9, 2008. The patent Method for Measuring Oxidized LDL-CRP Complex and Measurement Kit, describes the binding of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) with C-reactive protein (CRP) resulting in oxLDL/CRP (CRP-AtherOx) complex formation, and the immunoassay method for measuring these complexes in blood. CRP is an inflammatory protein that has been associated with risk of cardiovascular disease. High levels of CRP can be found in many inflammatory and infectious disorders, but oxLDL/CRP complexes were more specific and predictive of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (Tabuchi et al. J Lipid Res 2007; 48:768-781).

The latest patent adds to previous U.S. patents (# 5,900,359 issued May 4, 1999, Method for Determination of Oxidized Lipoproteins and Use Thereof, and # 7,160,733 issued January 9, 2007, Ligand Specific to B2-glycoprotein I and Use Thereof. These patents described the specific interaction of B2-glycoprotein I with the oxidized form of low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) leading to the formation of oxLDL/B2-glycoprotein I complexes (AtherOx). This interaction does not occur with the native or non-oxidized form of LDL. An immunoassay for the detection of the complexes was described which provides the basis for the AtherOx(R) test kits.
