As an MSL, Marc will be a field-based member of the Medical Affairs support team responsible for the application of scientific knowledge and experience to organize the collection of and to analyze clinical data; educate physicians and transplant coordinators; and to establish and maintain clinical/scientific relationships with key opinion leaders, researchers, transplant coordinators, laboratory managers, and other members of the scientific community.

James ("Jim") E.

Jim has a thorough understanding of the value of ImmuKnow in transplantation, a significant depth of knowledge within the transplant field, and a demonstrated ability to communicate and build relationships with key opinion leaders and clinicians. Jim's focus on our international opportunities will accelerate Cylex's ability to increase the global use and sales of ImmuKnow.

Each of our new and promoted employees dramatically enhances our ability to foster continued innovation and business development in transplantation."

About ImmuKnow

ImmuKnow is a noninvasive biomarker of immune function that assesses cellular immune status by detecting cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in adult immunosuppressed patients. It measures the concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) released from CD4 cells following cell stimulation. The ImmuKnow test is a qualitative assay and does not directly quantify the level of immunosuppression. Results of the ImmuKnow assay should be used in conjunction with clinical presentation, medical history, and other clinical indicators when assessing the immune status of any individual patient.
