FirstMark Exhibiting at the American College of Cardiology 61st Annual Scientific Sessions & Expo
Date:3/22/2012

CHICAGO, March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- FirstMark, the diagnostic division of GenWay Biotech, Inc., is pleased to announce that the company will be exhibiting at the 61st Annual Scientific Sessions & Expo of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Chicago, March 24-27, Booth #15084. FirstMark will showcase the new cardiovascular test PREvent. PREvent is the first and only multiple biomarker blood test that accurately predicts near term (2-3 years) risk of myocardial infarction and death for coronary artery disease patients. PREvent is an exciting development in cardiovascular medicine, addressing the unmet need to access the risk of near term MI.

"The ACC's Scientific Sessions & Expo is one of the largest and most prestigious conferences attended by cardiologists. The meeting's focus on scientific innovation and clinical application in cardiology makes it a perfect venue for FirstMark to share the remarkable research data and benefits of PREvent. We are pleased to have this opportunity, and look forward to meeting with cardiologists attending the conference," said Thomas Silberg, President and CEO of GenWay Biotech.

PREvent provides superior cardiac risk information by identifying the top 5% of CAD at the highest risk of MI with a hazard ratio of 5.5. The data showed an annual average of 18.2% of significant CAD patients with all three biomarkers elevated experienced a myocardial infarction or death, compared to only 2.45% of significant CAD patients with all biomarkers normal.  The multiple biomarker model adds markedly to traditional risk-prediction by significantly improving C-statistics from 0.695 for base model to 0.750, distinguishing high risk from low risk subjects.

Details about the test's research will be given in an oral research poster presentation at the conference, "An Aggregate of Pathway-Related Biomarkers Predict Risk of Acute Myocardial Infarction and Death," 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m., Sunday, March 25. (Session 1167 – Acute Coronary Syndromes: Clinical / McCormick Place South, Hall A, Poster Board: 117.) The abstract will be available following the presentation at FirstMarkPREvent.com.
