"A major priority for Cylex has been the recruitment of an experienced leader who could bring greater focus to the company and convert our extraordinary patented technology assets into profitable product opportunities," said Seth Rudnick, MD, General Partner in Canaan VII (a Canaan Partners fund), a major investor in Cylex, in announcing Mr. Stewart's appointment. "We believe Brad is the individual who brings us that skill set."

"I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to join Cylex and to focus first and foremost on ways to expand the awareness of our first marketed product, the ImmuKnow(R) assay, within and beyond the transplant community," says Mr. Stewart.
