About Venaxis, Inc.
Venaxis, Inc. is an in vitro diagnostic company focused on the clinical
development and commercialization of its CE Marked APPY1 Test, the Company's
rapid, protein biomarker-based assay for appendicitis. This unique
appendicitis test has projected high sensitivity and negative predictive value
and is being developed to aid in the identification of patients at low risk
for acute appendicitis, allowing for more conservative patient management. The
APPY1 Test is being developed initially for pediatric, adolescent and young
adult patients with abdominal pain, as this population is at the highest risk
for appendicitis and has the highest risk of long-term health effects
associated with CT imaging. While FDA clearance is being sought, an initial
launch for the APPY1 Test is ongoing in select European countries. For more
