SpectraCell's Telomere Testing Goes Mainstream
Date:7/21/2011

HOUSTON, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- America's #1 rated morning news program, The Today Show, featured a story highlighting SpectraCell's Telomere Test, a blood test that measures cellular aging.  The segment entitled How to Live to 100 showcased SpectraCell's Telomere Test as a tool for those interested in monitoring their health with biomarkers specific to longevity and aging. The Telomere Test measures a person's biological age in comparison to their chronological age, giving a person an overall picture of how well they are aging.

SpectraCell was the first company to commercially offer telomere analysis to patients when it introduced its Telomere Test in June 2009.  Before that, telomere testing was only available to researchers and university scientists.  SpectraCell's telomere testing was also recently featured in the New York Times (May 18, 2011). The Today Show, which has over five million viewers, aired the story on July 13, 2011. (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/43737929#43737929)

Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of chromosomes that cap genetic material and serve as protective buffers that prevent chromosomes from becoming attached to each other or rearranging.  They are often compared to the caps at the ends of shoelaces. Every time a cell replicates, its telomere gets shorter, eventually causing cell death once the telomere attrition has reach its maximum. Measuring telomere length in human lymphocytes is an indicator of cellular aging, and research demonstrates that shortened telomeres are responsible for many of the normal processes of aging.

"SpectraCell Laboratories has always been on the cutting edge of diagnostic testing and Telomere Testing is no exception. We commercialized this test in direct response to interest from our physician clients, who saw it as a natural complement to
