Transgenomic Licenses IP From IntegraGen to Develop Genetic Test for Autism
Date:2/24/2010

class="xn-person">Craig Tuttle, president and chief executive officer of Transgenomic. "We believe that the use of this test in conjunction with standard diagnostic tools will allow for the earlier diagnosis of autism, and importantly, the more timely initiation of treatment plans for these children.  We look forward to adding this proprietary test to our growing commercial offerings."

Autism is a developmental disorder that causes significant social, communication and behavioral challenges in children.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 110 children in the U.S. has an autism-related disorder, and that the incidence of autism is up 57 percent from 2002 to 2006.  Even though parents typically express concerns about their child's developmental progress before the age of three, the average age of diagnoses is not until 53 months.  Early intervention has been shown to be effective in improving a child's ability to develop into a competent adult.  Children with a sibling who has been diagnosed with autism are at a significantly greater risk of developing the disorder.

"IntegraGen is excited about the opportunity for our technology to be commercialized by Transgenomic," said Dr. Bernard Courtieu, chief executive officer of IntegraGen. "We will continue our gene discovery efforts to further our understanding of autism while focusing on other diseases where molecular tests may help with patient diagnosis and disease management."
