Date:11/3/2011

and pre-launch development activities for the MaterniT21 LDT in the third quarter of 2011.  Selling and marketing expenses increased by $1.6 million to $22.0 million for the first nine months of 2011, due primarily to higher labor costs associated with the expansion of the diagnostic sales force.  Total stock-based compensation expense was $9.2 million for the first nine months of 2011, an increase from the $8.7 million recorded during the first nine months of 2010.

The MaterniT21 LDT is indicated for use in pregnant women at high-risk for carrying a fetus with Down syndrome and can accurately test maternal blood as early as 10 weeks of gestation. In the United States, there are an estimated 750,000 such high-risk pregnancies each year.

A clinical validation study leading to the introduction of the MaterniT21 LDT was recently published online in the journal Genetics in Medicine.  The results of the multi-center study demonstrated high accuracy, detecting nearly all (99.1%) positive cases of fetal trisomy 21 with a very low false positive rate.
