"Bloodtest with Great Potential" in health magazine

Denmark, May 11, 2016.

The Danish health-magazine Helse has in their May edition an article on suPAR and its great potential; "Blodtest med Store Perspektiver" - see link here (in Danish).

The article talks about suPAR and its ability to find different diseases even before the patient is ill, and also its potential to help patients take preventive actions if they see that their suPAR level is too high - and thus live a more healthy life with more physical activity, more healthy diet, less smoking etc. - to bring their suPAR level down.

Dr. Jesper Eugen-Olsen is interviewed and talks about the biomarkers routine use in Hvidovre Hospital, Denmark.

Dr. Martin Schultz talks about the big TRIAGE III study being caried out at the moment, a randomised multicentre intervention study where 10.000 patients will be suPAR measured at different hospitals in the Copenhagen region from January - June 2016.

New Data in New England Journal of Medicine on Chronic Kidney Disease

Denmark, November 10, 2015.

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine published on November 5 shows that suPAR reliably can predict the development of Chronic Kidney Disease up to five years before symptoms of this disease emerge - a disease that affects an estimated 600 million people.

Currently, physicians rely on two markers to monitor existing kidney disease, but they are not sensitive enough to predict a persons risk of developing the disease or to catch it in its early stages.

The New England Journal of Medicine study found that a high suPAR level was an excellent predictor of future kidney disease.
"We can now stratify people according to their risk of developing kidney disease using suPAR levels" said Dr. Salim Hayek, first author of the study.

The study is even a significant breakthrough in preventive medicine. Also diabetes patients, of which about one-third develop Diabetic Kidney Disease, can now be helped.
"This will help risk-stratify patients with diabetes on their risk of future kidney disease" explains Jochen Reiser, senior author of the NEJM study.

Results are based upon research using the suPARnostic® products from ViroGates.

Jakob Knudsen, CEO of ViroGates comments: " We are pleased that our products can help to identify patients in risk of developing chronic kidney disease earlier than what has been possible to date, and we look forward to help the medical community use these results in clinical practice".

Emergency Medicine is drawing more and more attention as the number of patients in Emergency Departments is growing rapidly each year.

The suPARnostic® Quick Triage test is a Point of Care Test Device and a triaging aid for patient risk prognosis for clinicians in Emergency Medicine.

Meet us at the ViroGates booth no. 24 in the exhibition area, where we will be giving product presentations of the Quantitative suPARnostic® Quick Triage test during the breaks.

Jakob Knudsen, CEO and Jesper Eugen-Olsen, CSO, will be present together with our distributor B.S.N.

There will also be a poster by PhD Student Line Jee Rasmussen, Hvidovre Hospital with the title;

“Low values of the inflammatory biomarker suPAR is a good predictor of low risk of readmission and mortality in the acute care setting”.

Please find more information on the congress here: EuSEM Congress 2015

 ACC2015 2

October 17-18: ACC 2015 in Vienna, Austria - Acute Cardiovascular Care.

ACC is the largest meeting in Europe with focus on Acute Cardiovascular diseases, and the topic "Innovating to Improve Acute Cardiovascular Care" this year.

The suPARnostic® Quick Triage test is a triaging aid for patient risk prognosis in Acute Care - also in the cardiovascular area.

The lateral flow test will determine the level of suPAR in only 20 minutes, giving the clinician a better tool to determine the severity of the patients prognosis.

Meet us at the ViroGates booth no. B3 in the exhibition area, where we will be giving product presentations of the Quantitative suPARnostic® Quick Triage test during the breaks.

Jakob Knudsen, CEO and Jesper Eugen-Olsen, CSO, will be present.
