Spectral announces publication demonstrating Toraymyxin(TM) significantly reduces mortality from sepsis in prospective controlled trial
Date:6/18/2009

Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) increased (76 to 84 mm Hg; P = 0.001) in the Toraymyxin(TM) group but not in the conventional therapy group (MAP, 74 to 77 mm Hg; P = 0.37). - Vasopressor requirement decreased (inotropic score, 29.9 to 6.8; P (less than) 0.001) at 72 hours in the Toraymyxin(TM) group but not in the conventional therapy group (inotropic score, 28.6 to 22.4; P = 0.14). - Sequential Organ Failure Assessment scores improved in the Toraymyxin (TM) group but not in the conventional therapy group (change in SOFA, -3.4 vs -0.1; P (less than) 0.001). The abstract and full text of the article is available online at www.jama.ama-assn.org and appears in JAMA. 2009; Vol. 301 # 23, 2445-2452. About Spectral Diagnostics

Spectral is a leader in the battle against sepsis. Spectral's lead product is its Endotoxin Activity Assay (EAA(TM)), the only FDA cleared assay for the measurement of endotoxin. With the growing awareness for the role of endotoxemia in sepsis and the increasing number of therapies being developed for this indication, Spectral is well-positioned to drive the adoption of the EAA(TM), which can be used to identify patients, enable therapeutics and monitor treatment. In March 2009, Spectral obtained the exclusive development and commercial rights in the U.S. for Toraymyxin(TM), a therapeutic for the treatment of sepsis that removes endotoxin from the bloodstream. Spectral will seek FDA approval for Toraymyxin(TM) and intends to commercialize the product together with EAA(TM). Spectral is listed on TSX under the symbol SDI.
