About Miraculins Inc.
Miraculins is a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring,
developing and commercializing non-invasive tests for unmet clinical
needs. A significant number of promising diagnostic opportunities
zed because of the sizable gap between the
discovery stage, when research institutions are typically involved,
and the commercialization stage, when the larger commercial
enterprises become interested. Miraculins has direct experience in
bridging this gap. The Company's PreVu(R) technology is a
revolutionary new coronary artery disease risk assessment technology
that measures cholesterol levels in a patient's skin non-invasively,
painlessly and without the need for fasting. Miraculins is also
advancing a suite of biomarkers to aid in the early detection of the
devastating disease of pregnancy known as preeclampsia. The lead
marker in the Company's preeclampsia program is partnered with Alere
Inc., one of the world's largest diagnostic companies. For more
