Partnership to develop Aterovax’s patented biomarker sPLA2 for the assessment of cardiovascular risk.

Randox Laboratories Ltd. and Aterovax SA have announced a strategic partnership to commercialize Aterovax’s patented biomarker secreted Phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) for the assessment of cardiovascular risk. Terms of the alliance were not disclosed.

sPLA2 is a novel biomarker that independently and over and above traditional risk factors predicts adverse outcomes in patients with stable coronary artery disease and is useful in the risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndrome.

Randox have exclusive rights to develop, manufacture and market the new test for use on automated immunoassay analyzers and will develop the sPLA2 test for its own range of analyzers and other diagnostic analyzers.

Dr. Peter FitzGerald CBE FREng, Managing Director at Randox commented “this was an exciting opportunity for Randox to expand its portfolio of CVD biomarkers and demonstrates continued investment in this field. The new SPLA2 test has been shown to add significant clinical value when combined with other biomarkers in the Randox range of tests and offers us the opportunity to provide an effective panel of tests for CVD risk assessment with strong clinical utility. The sPLA2 test will be offered to hospital laboratories through our global distribution network in 145 countries.”

Dr. Gerald Ulrich, CEO of Aterovax believes this strategic partnership will utilize the strengths of Aterovax’s many years research in CVD, especially on the development, role and clinical utility of its patented biomarker (sPLA2) in CVD risk assessment/patient stratification with Randox’s expertise in developing assays for automated immunoassay platforms and “pioneering” novel new assays in CVD biomarkers to establish a sustainable market presence for sPLA2 in the global clinical laboratory market for CVD risk assessment.
