Vermillion to Host Live Roundtable Discussion With Lead Investigator of its Peripheral Artery Disease Diagnostic Test Program

- Conference Call to Occur on Wednesday, April 30 at 2 p.m. Eastern -

FREMONT, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vermillion, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRML), a molecular diagnostics company, will host a roundtable teleconference to address the need for improved detection of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and to provide information about the Company's PAD blood test, which is currently in late-stage development. The teleconference will take place on Wednesday, April 30 at 2 p.m. ET, and will feature as the keynote speaker John Cooke, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, whose research forms the basis of Vermillion's PAD blood test.

In collaboration with Dr. Cooke and his research team at Stanford University, Vermillion has developed a novel panel of biomarkers in an effort to determine the risk of PAD through a simple blood test. Dr. Cooke, whose research focuses on preventive cardiology and vascular medicine, is the immediate past-president of the Society for Vascular Medicine and Biology. Dr. Cooke also serves on Vermillion's newly formed PAD clinical steering committee. In this role, he provides the Company with advice on additional studies to support registration of the PAD test with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and to further potential market adoption.

Vermillion has an exclusive license agreement with Stanford to develop and commercialize the PAD biomarker panel.

About Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

PAD, a serious but often asymptomatic disorder affecting some eight to 12 million Americans, is caused by the buildup of fat and cholesterol, or plaque, in the peripheral arteries, disrupting normal blood flow. Left untreated, PAD more than doubles the risk of heart attack and stroke and increases the risk of amputation and death. There are treatments that can save the lives and limbs of these patients, once the disease is recognized.
