DIATHERIX Laboratories, Inc. Receives Second Research Contract from FDA and HHS
Dec 16 14
DIATHERIX Laboratories, Inc. has been awarded a second federal contract to continue its work in the development of research methodologies designed to support the development of diagnostic tools to detect certain low prevalence pathogens. The contract is a joint award from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support the development of diagnostic devices/platforms to detect high priority pathogens, as classified by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Diatherix's research focuses on three NIAID pathogens: Francisella tularensis, Escherichia coli, and Babesia microti. Though not prevalent in the natural environment, the pathogens are prioritized by NIAID because of the ease with which they can be disseminated or transmitted; the mortality rates and public health impact they can generate; their potential to cause public panic and social disruption; and the special actions that are required for public health preparedness. For instance, F. tularensis has a low infectious dose, is highly virulent, and is easily spread by aerosol; as such, it is classified by the NIAID and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a Category A Priority pathogen/biological agent that poses high risk to national security and public health. The low prevalence of these pathogens complicates the development of diagnostic tools to aid in their detection, as sufficient clinical samples may not be available to conduct the clinical sensitivity studies required for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. To address this regulatory and scientific challenge, the FDA is exploring the use of "spiked" clinical samples special lab samples in which the pathogen being studied is introduced at increased or enriched levels to support sensitivity studies for the evaluation of diagnostic devices.
