Quest Diagnostics to Pay U.S. $302 Million to Resolve Allegations That a Subsidiary Sold Misbranded Test Kits
Date:4/15/2009

today's settlement, Mr. Cantor will share in the proceeds of the False Claims Act recovery and will receive approximately $45 million.

The criminal resolution focuses solely on the Advantage Intact PTH Assay. As alleged in the information, there were periods of time in which the Advantage Intact PTH Assay provided elevated results. The marketing materials that NID distributed regarding the Advantage Intact PTH Assay described that product as having "excellent correlation" to the IRMA Assay. Additionally, the directional insert for the Intact PTH Assay, in a section entitled "Accuracy," described a study in which the IRMA Assay and the Advantage Intact PTH Assay produced nearly identical results when used to test PTH levels in samples of human blood. Contrary to the claims in NID's directional inserts and marketing materials, however, in about May 2000, and at various times thereafter, NID was aware that the Advantage Intact PTH Assay was not consistently providing results that were equivalent to those of the IRMA Assay.

Additionally, during some of the periods of time after May 2000, NID was also aware that the Advantage Intact PTH Assay provided elevated PTH results. Nonetheless, NID continued to indicate, in its directional inserts and marketing materials, that the Advantage Intact PTH Assay and the IRMA Assay provided nearly identical results. As part of the guilty plea, NID admitted that in or about May 2000 and at various times thereafter, the company knowingly, intentionally and with intent to mislead, introduced into interstate commerce, and caused the introduction into interstate commerce of the Advantage Intact PTH Assay, that was misbranded.

The civil settlement resolves allegations that NID manufactured, marketed and sold the Intact PTH and Bio-Intact PTH test kits, despite knowing that between May 1, 2000, and April 30, 2006, some of these kits produced results that were materially inaccurate and
