First Bedside DNA Test to be Distributed by Chirus in UK
Date:12/27/2012

Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) December 27, 2012

Spartan Bioscience today announced a distribution agreement with Chirus for the Spartan RX—the first point-of-care DNA test in medicine.(1) Chirus specializes in point-of-care diagnostic products in the UK.

The Spartan RX point-of-care DNA testing system identifies carriers of CYP2C19 loss-of-function mutations, which are carried by approximately 30% of the world’s population.(2) Genetic carriers who receive Plavix® (clopidogrel) following a cardiac stent have a 42 percent higher risk of death, stroke, or heart attack in the first year compared to non-carriers.(3) In 2009, Plavix® was the second best-selling drug in the world, with over $9 billion in revenues.

“Spartan is very excited to extend its distribution network to the UK,” said Paul Lem, M.D., CEO of Spartan Bioscience. “We have chosen Chirus as our partner based on their market development expertise and existing customer base.”

“The Spartan RX system is a breakthrough towards bringing rapid genomic testing to the point of care,” said Talat Syed, Director of Chirus. “For the first time, cardiologists can genotype patients in the cardiac catheterization suite.”

About the Spartan RX CYP2C19
The Spartan RX CYP2C19 is the first point-of-care DNA test in medicine.(1) It identifies carriers of CYP2C19 genetic mutations in 1 hour. These mutations are carried by approximately 30 percent of the world’s population.(2) Genetic carriers who receive Plavix® following a cardiac stent insertion to open clogged arteries have a 42 percent higher risk of death, stroke, or heart attack in the first year compared to non-carriers.(3) Currently, genetic testing is performed in central labs and it takes up to seven days to get a test result back. A rapid test is needed because most of the complications for CYP2C19 car
