Telome Health, Inc. Launches With Exclusive IP Portfolio
Date:3/22/2011

MENLO PARK, Calif., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Telome Health, Inc. (THI) officially launched today with an exclusive worldwide intellectual property portfolio. THI will provide telomere length data from tissue samples for academic research, pharmaceutical drug development, and health monitoring.

THI leverages the predictive power of data related to telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, to assess health status, disease and mortality risk, and responses to specific therapies. The test will provide doctors with important data about their patients' health and disease risk to better inform their clinical decisions. Telomere health measures integrate many factors, both genetic and non-genetic. "We recently secured an exclusive worldwide license to the telomere patent portfolio developed by Dr. Richard Cawthon at the University of Utah. In addition to clinical utility, measuring telomere length will also allow people to gauge their overall health status and determine whether lifestyle changes are necessary and potentially indicate the effectiveness of those changes," stated Daniel Hunt, THI's interim CEO.

Two of THI's founders played key roles in developing the field of telomere biology: Professor Elizabeth Blackburn, Ph.D. (UCSF), the 2009 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, for her seminal work on telomere structure and function and the discovery of telomerase, the enzyme that synthesizes telomeric DNA; and Calvin Harley, Ph.D., who linked telomeres and telomerase to human cell aging and disease, and translated telomere science into drug development at Geron Corporation as VP Research and CSO.

"Two of the patents in the portfolio cover the qPCR method for measuring telomere length, which is scalable and cost-effective and we believe will be the dominant technology for high-throughput assays and a key competitive advantage for Telome Health in our field," explained Dr. Harley, THI's CSO. "Dr. Cawthon, an inter
