Roche Submits Acute Hepatitis B Test to FDA for Premarket Approval
Date:7/26/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) announced today that it has submitted a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Elecsys Anti-HBc IgM assay for use on the cobas e 411, cobas e 601 and MODULAR ANALYTICS E170 analyzers. The hepatitis B test represents the final component of the acute panel within the hepatitis menu on Roche's family of immunoassay analyzers.

The PMA submission is for use of the assay in the in-vitro qualitative determination of IgM antibodies to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc IgM) in human serum or plasma.  The presence of anti-HBc IgM, in conjunction with other laboratory results and clinical information, is indicative of acute or recent hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.* The assay is intended to be used with Roche's electrochemiluminescence (ECL) immunoassay technology.

Roche currently has seven other immunoassay tests available on its hepatitis menu:  HBsAg, HBsAg Confirmatory, Anti-HBs, Anti-HCV, Anti-HAV, Anti-HAV IgM and Anti-HBc.

The FDA has 45 days after the PMA is received to notify Roche whether the application has been filed. If the PMA is accepted for filing, the FDA has a 180-day period for substantive review of the application.
