"The automated versions of the galectin-3 test are under development by our commercialization partners, Abbott Laboratories, Alere, Siemens, and bioMerieux," continued Dr. Muntendam. "We expect that our partners will begin FDA clearance submissions for their automated versions of the test starting in the fourth quarter of 2011."AMIPredict is in development by the Company as a test to identify people at risk for near-term heart attack. Identifying patients before their first heart attack is a significant unmet medical need, and we believe that AMIPredict could be an improved diagnostic test compared to conventional risk factor-based approaches for heart attack and stroke risk. Furthermore, we believe that identification of those at risk could enable targeted primary prevention, such as anti-platelet and anti-thrombotic therapies. We expect to complete the remaining development of AMIPredict in the second or third quarter of 2011, and, if successful, we expect to file a 510(k) application with the FDA shortly thereafter," said Dr. Muntendam.
