Gen-Probe Submits U.S. Regulatory Application for Additional Approval of PROCLEIX(R) ULTRIO(R) Blood Screening Assay
Date:2/21/2008

based on serology tests for HBV surface antigen and core antibodies. Based on discussions with the FDA, Gen-Probe and Chiron agreed to conduct a post-marketing study of the PROCLEIX ULTRIO assay to demonstrate the HBV yield required for a donor-screening claim.

Gen-Probe began this post-marketing study in early 2007. To date, approximately 500,000 blood donations have been screened in the study, and two HBV yield cases have been identified. Data on these two yield cases comprise the foundation of the Company's supplemental BLA.

HBV is the most common serious liver infection in the world and is transmitted through contact with blood and body fluids. HBV infection can lead to liver failure, cirrhosis or cancer. According to the World Health Organization, more than 350 million people worldwide are chronically infected with HBV. More than one million people die annually as a result of HBV infections.
