COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Cylex(TM) is a global life sciences company that develops and manufactures research and in vitro diagnostic products based on its patented technology.

"The ability to fully support the needs of our customers is critical to the development of this company as a provider of diagnostic tests focused on the immune system," said Mr. Brad Stewart, the president of Cylex. "We have therefore made a series of key appointments designed primarily to address customer needs, and I am pleased to be able to announce these today."

She has over 20 years experience in biomedical research, assay development, product development, and clinical study in both academia and industry. Most recently, she was a clinical trials specialist with the National Institutes of Health. Prior to that she held various positions at Human Genome Sciences.

In addition, Cylex has appointed four new Business Development Managers, who will have regional field responsibilities for current and target customers in specific areas of the USA:

-- Hilary A. Comfort has previously held account management and sales positions with several well-known pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, most recently including UCB Pharma and Astellas.

About ImmuKnow(R)

ImmuKnow is the immune cell function assay cleared by the FDA to detect cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in adult patient populations undergoing immunosuppressive therapy for organ transplantation by measuring the concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) released from CD4 cells following cell stimulation.

The ImmuKnow test is a qualitative assay and does not directly quantify the level of immunosuppression. Results of ImmuKnow assays should be used in conjunction with clinical presentation, medical history, and other clinical indicators when assessing the immune status of any individual patient.
