Date:10/29/2013

Ab Combo test is currently undergoing CLIA-waiver studies to demonstrate its ease of use, safety and accuracy. In the fourth quarter of 2013, Alere anticipates submitting to the FDA its application to categorize Alere Determine HIV 1/2 Ag/Ab Combo as a CLIA-waived test, so it can be made widely available in physician offices and public health settings.

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 1.2 million Americans living with HIV, and an estimated 207,000 (18%) whose infections have not been diagnosed. In 2010, the CDC estimated that there were 47,500 newly infected people with the virus in the United States, indicating that HIV remains a serious health problem. HIV testing is essential for healthcare and social services to improve the quality of life and survival for persons who have HIV.
