BIOGENETIC SCIENCES TpP TEST STUDIES
REPORTED AT PARIS CONFERENCE
NY, July 19, 2001 American Biogenetic Sciences,
Inc. (ABS)(Nasdaq:MABA) announced three presentations
at the XVIII Congress of The International Society
on Thrombosis and Haemostasis in Paris, France, last
week which provided additional valuable insights into
the clinical utility of TpP, a patented test for measuring
blood levels of Thrombus Precursor Protein (TpP).
The studies suggest a broader range of potential uses
for the companys TpP test in excluding thrombosis
in certain patient populations.
Paidas and colleagues, Department of Ob/Gyn, New York
University School of Medicine, New York, New York,
presented data on TpP in the management of high risk
pregnancies and noted a relationship between poor
blood flow and birth weight and TpP levels.
Arkel and colleagues, Maine Medical Center Research
Institute, Portland, Maine, presented two papers evaluating
the utility of TpP in various medical conditions including
the monitoring of thrombosis in renal and oncology
