About AspenBio Pharma and AppyScore
AspenBio Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: APPY) is an emerging in-vitro diagnostic company focused on obtaining U.S. FDA clearance for its lead product, AppyScore™. AppyScore is a unique, blood-based test designed to help physicians manage the millions of patients who enter emergency rooms every year complaining of abdominal pain and suspected of having acute appendicitis but at low risk for the disease. AppyScore is a rule-out screening test with high sensitivity and negative predictive value. The test could potentially decrease radiation exposure risk arising from the use of CT scans performed in triaging pediatric and adolescent patients with abdominal pain, as well as potentially reduce healthcare costs. The company has a large and unique repository of blood samples that provide valuable data regarding the appendicitis condition and additional protein marker information associated with causes of abdominal pain, providing an important resource for product development. The company also has several reproduction drugs in research and development for use in animals of economic importance.
AspenBio Pharma has several issued or pending patents in the United States and abroad that cover its appendicitis and animal health-related technologies, including those exclusively licensed from Washington University in St. Louis.
