ZEUS Scientific Expands Cardiology Product Menu With Updated Agreement With Gamma Therapeutics

Jun 4, 2015

ZEUS Scientific and Gamma Therapeutics announced today that they have signed a new agreement providing ZEUS exclusive, worldwide rights to distribute, market and sell the GammaCoeur CVD Risk ELISA test. This test, based on the analyte gamma prime fibrinogen, is for use in the evaluation of a patient’s risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart attack and stroke. In 2012, ZEUS and Gamma agreed to collaborate to finalize development of the GammaCoeur product and after a successful development phase, ZEUS was contracted as the manufacturer of the GammaCoeur ELISA product.

Over the past three years ZEUS Scientific has expanded it’s product menu to include novel, high value diagnostic assays for use in cardiovascular risk assessment. The addition of the GammaCoeur CVD test with AccuCardia (www.accucardia.com) provides physicians with better tools to more accurately stratify patient risk profiles and apply appropriate therapies for enhanced patient care.

ZEUS Scientific will be promoting both products at the upcoming American Association for Clinical Chemistry Clinical Lab Expo (booth #1235) and European Society of Cardiology Congress (stand #D630).

The ZEUS strategic partnership offers the opportunity for Gamma Therapeutics to broadly market its novel GammaCoeur CVD ELISA in global diagnostic test markets, quickly respond to customer purchasing needs, and support risk screening trends employing multiple biomarkers in comprehensive cardiac test panels, commented David F. Eastman, Chief Executive Officer. Longer term, ZEUS and Gamma plan to collaborate on development efforts to build additional test platforms for the GammaCoeur ELISA and pursue new applications for its versatile analyte, gamma prime fibrinogen, focused on inflammatory-related diseases.
