Vermillion and the Ohio State University Report That Novel Diagnostic Test May Help Predict Risk for Relapse of TTP, A Serious Blood Disorder

- Findings Published in the British Journal of Hematology -

FREMONT, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vermillion, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRML) today reported findings from an Ohio State University (OSU) clinical study that indicated that a surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time of flight (SELDI-TOF)-based thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) diagnostic test could be used to help estimate the risk of TTP relapses during clinical remission.

TTP is caused by a deficient activity of the enzyme ADAMTS13, which leads to platelet clumping, red blood cell destruction, and, in serious cases, to neurological abnormalities and renal failure.

The disease is characterized by frequent recurrences, with approximately half of all patients experiencing relapses," said Haifeng M. Wu, M.D., lead investigator of the study and Assistant Professor of Pathology and Medicine and Director of the Clinical Coagulation Laboratory at OSU Medical Center.
