For Immediate Release
Corgenix to Exhibit AspirinWorks® Test at Pri-Med East
Test measures urinary 11dhTxB2 to assess aspirin effect
DENVER— November 17, 2010 — Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTC BB: CONX), a worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, has announced it will be exhibiting and offering complimentary testing for its AspirinWorks® Test at Pri-Med East 2010. The conference and exhibit will take place November 18-21 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Corgenix representatives will be on-hand during the conference at booth No. 1012 to answer questions about the AspirinWorks Test, including availability of the test, the latest supporting clinical data and ordering information. AspirinWorks Tests will be offered to qualified attendees during regular exhibit hours November 19-21. Test results will be provided after the conference.
The AspirinWorks Test is the only FDA-cleared test that measures urinary 11dhTxB2 to determine aspirin effect in apparently healthy individuals post ingestion. 11dhTxB2 is a metabolite of thromboxane A2, the target of aspirin therapy. Numerous studies in the literature have shown that not everyone benefits from the same dose of aspirin.
The AspirinWorks Test was launched in the U.S. in June 2007 following FDA 510(k) clearance and is now available nationwide through major medical laboratories, including Quest, LabCorp, SpectraCell and Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. The test targets a potential U.S. market of over 60 million individuals and a potential global market exceeding 200 million individuals who take aspirin for prevention.
Unlike functional platelet tests, which require freshly drawn blood that must be evaluated within at least four hours, the AspirinWorks Test is performed on a random urine sample that can be
obtained in any doctor’s office or patient service center, making the test convenient for both physician and patient.
Physicians and laboratories interested in ordering the test can call 1-800-729-5661 x180, or email email@example.com. More information is also available at www.aspirinworks.com.
