Executive Summary

AMDL Diagnostics (ADI) has enlisted Grifols, one of Spain's largest and most established healthcare multinationals, as the exclusive distributor of its colorectal cancer test. The five-year agreement will see Grifols USA market the DR-70 Onko-Sure test to hospitals and labs nationwide, for monitoring the recurrence of colorectal cancer. ADI was created in August by its parent company, Tustin, California-based Radient Pharmaceuticals (formerly known as AMDL), to focus exclusively on the commercialisation of Onko-Sure (, August 21 2009). According to Radient, around 151,000 new cases of colorectal cancer were diagnosed in the US in 2008 – almost half of all patients thought to be cured are expected to develop a recurrence of the cancer within five years, usually due to undetected metastases.
