Spectral diagnostics Raises $14 million and enters into strategic collaboration with BioMS Medical to commercialize treatment for sepsis
Date:12/17/2009

study unique in the history of sepsis clinical trials," said Dr. R. Phillip Dellinger, Professor of Medicine, University Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey, Head, Division of Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, Cooper University Hospital, Camden New Jersey and primary investigator for the study. Cooper University Hospital will also be the coordinating center for the clinical trial.

"BioMS is very pleased to support Spectral and its management team in the development of Toraymyxin(TM) in the US. This once again positions BioMS with a unique opportunity that addresses a significant unmet medical need and has blockbuster potential," said Kevin Giese, President and CEO of BioMS Medical. "In addition, this relationship highlights the value of our experienced team, which will play a key role in helping Spectral to advance Toraymyxin(TM) from a clinical, regulatory and commercial perspective."

About Toraymyxin(TM), Endotoxin and Sepsis

Spectral's Endotoxin Activity Assay (EAA(TM)) is the only FDA cleared assay for the measurement of endotoxin in the bloodstream. Toraymyxin(TM) is a therapeutic hemoperfusion device that removes endotoxin from the bloodstream. The anticipated US pivotal trial will use Spectral's EAA(TM) to identify patients with severe sepsis who have elevated endotoxin in the blood and will most likely benefit from treatment with Toraymyxin(TM).

Sepsis affects approximately 750,000 patients in the US each year. It accounts for approximately 1 in 10 ICU admissions at an annual cost to the US healthcare system of $17 billion. Sepsis is the 10th most common cause of death in the US, ahead of acute heart attacks and breast cancer.

Results of a randomized controlled trial (the EUPHAS trial) were recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA. 2009; Vol. 301 # 23, 2445-2452). The results demonstrated that Toraymyxin(TM) absorbs endotoxin from the bloodstream, and when
