Croissy-Beaubourg and Montpellier, March 28, 2017, 8am CEST – Theradiag (ISIN: FR0004197747, ticker: ALTER), a company specializing in in vitro diagnostics and theranostics, is today announcing further progress in bringing its LISA TRACKER® monitoring tests to the US market as part of its agreement with Miraca Life Sciences.
The Simponi® (golimumab) monitoring kit supplements the InformTxTM range and increases to six the number of tests available in the US market for biotherapies treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Miraca Life Sciences is the only company offering the Cimzia®, Stelara® and Simponi® monitoring, and it now has the most extensive monitoring range in the US market.
“We are very pleased to be adding a sixth test to the range of tests we are offering in the US market through our partnership with Miraca Life Sciences. The speed with which the range is expanding is very good news, and shows that there is currently a high level of unmet medical need. Based on this development we are expecting our US revenues to make an important contribution to Theradiag’s overall sales growth in 2017,” concluded Michel Finance, CEO at Theradiag.
